Caly’s Happy Car Critters Holiday Card!

Hi Friends! It’s Caly and I’m so happy you can join me today for a Happy Holiday Critters card for Challenge #89! Lawn Fawn has such adorable critters and the holiday critters have that added charm that gets me every winter! Today, I’m using the Car Critters Christmas Add-On set to make my holiday card festive.

I began by stamping my background panel with the Over the Mountain Borders. For the rest of the images (Car Critters, Car Critters Christmas Add-On and Winter Skies trees) I stamped on another piece of white cardstock knowing I would die-cut to adhere them to the background panel. I colored everything with Copic markers and added white gel highlights to them using my Sakura Gelly Roll Pen.

Copic markers:
Reds: R30, R22, R24, R29
Yellows: Y11, Y15
Greens: G21, G24, G28, G29
Blues: B0000, B000, B000, B01, B02
Browns: E000, E51, E30, E33, E35, E37
Grays: [W00, W1, W3, W5], [C0, C2, C4, C6]

Next, I used the Road Border die to die-cut my road in black. I rotated it to fit the curve of the mountain background so I didn’t have to trim it where the road meets the mountain border. Then using the Y15 Copic marker, I added the yellow to brighten the dash marks with color.

To finish, I attached my images with foam adhesive to give everything lots of dimension. I love this holiday scene and I hope you do too!

Happy Holiday Critters challenge runs 3 weeks through December 6th at 11:59pm PST, so I hope that’s plenty of time for you to play along! Have a blessed day!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!


Christy’s Car Critters Christmas Card

Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our Card Sketch Challenge! This time I decided to flip the sketch on its side, but keep the focal panel and sentiment right side up. I was so excited to play with the Car Critters now that I have the Car Critters Christmas Add-on! So many fun and festive decorations!

I stamped my images in Jet Black ink, colored them with Copic markers, and trimmed them out with the matching dies.

For the background, I took the two straight lines in the sketch and replaced them with wavy ones so that I could put in some snowy Stitched Hillside Borders. And I created a winding road by adding strips of Storm Cloud Cardstock over the white. For the sky, I used a piece of my favorite bokeh print patterned paper from the Snow Day Remix 6×6 pad.

I adhered everything to a Mermaid card base and popped up the bottom snowy hill with foam tape. Then I added my images with a mix of foam tape and liquid glue. I white heat embossed the sentiment onto some Chili Pepper cardstock and trimmed it down with an Everyday Sentiment Banner and tucked it up under the front tires of the car to fit the card sketch. Then I finished it off with a little extra stamping of the music notes and Jingle Bells words and some Stardust Stickles for a little sparkle.

I also finished the sentiment by stamping on the inside of the card, which you can check out in the video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty

If you haven’t used our Card Sketch to create something for our challenge, you still have time! This challenge will be open until Sunday, November 1 at 11:59PM ET. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!


Wishing you all a wonderful weekend! Happy crafting!
