A Super Happy Holiday Critter Card with Christy

Hey friends, it’s Christy here with another card for our Happy Holiday Critters Challenge! I love making scene cards, and I combined so many different sets into this one. I used Beary Happy Holidays, Cheery Christmas, Mice on Ice, Holiday Helpers, Yeti or Not, and Simply Celebrate Winter. I colored all my images with Copic markers and trimmed them out with the matching dies.


For the background, I used a piece of bokeh paper from the Snow Day Remix 6×6 pad for the sky. I added stitching detail to the edges with the Large Stitched Rectangle Stackables, then added some tree silhouettes with the Stitched Tree Border. Overtop of that, I layered two Stitched Hillside Borders, one glued flat to the card, and the other popped up with foam tape.

I cut out an icy pond using the Bayou Backdrop and heat embossed a little swirl of ice skating tracks from Mice on Ice. I added that to the lower left corner of the card. Then I added my images into the scene with a combo of liquid glue and foam tape.

The little snowman was from Simply Celebrate Winter. I just masked him off from the rest of his friends when stamping and used the dies to cut out most of him, and my Cutter Bee scissors to trim down the rest.


To finish things off, I added a sentiment stamped in Bubblegum Ink and trimmed out with an Everyday Sentiment Banner, and a bit of Stardust Stickles for a little sparkle.

I also finished off the inside using Simply Celebrate Winter, which you can check out in the video tutorial on my YouTube channel, Christy Gets Crafty.

The Happy Holiday Critters challenge will be open until Sunday December 6 at 11:59PM ET. We hope you will join us!

Thank you so much for sharing with us today, Christy!

Have a fun and crafty weekend, friends!

Lawn Fawnatics Challenge 89 – Happy Holiday Critters

Hello friends! It’s time to see what our cute critters are up to for the holidays! Our new challenge is Happy Holiday Critters and we would love to see how our little critters are celebrating this holiday season!

We invite you to share your creativity by linking up your crafty projects at the end of this post! Your project should feature Lawn Fawn stamps, dies and papers. This challenge will run for 3 weeks and be open until Sunday, December 6th at 11:59PM ET.

For each challenge, we will randomly select an entry to receive a $25.00 gift certificate to the Lawn Fawn shop! We will also be highlighting a few of your fabulous projects at the close of each challenge! By linking your projects to our challenges you will give permission for us to post your work to this blog and our social media sites. Check out the How to Play page for a few guidelines to play along. We want this to be FUN so we’ll keep the rules to just a few!

We are so happy to welcome a new Guest Designer for this challenge! Say hello to Valerie Ward! She created an amazing project for this challenge, I know it will inspire you!

Valerie created an awesome tall slimline card, complete with 2 Reveal Wheels! For this card, the little caroling peas are the critters; so cute! She combined images from Peas on Earth, Tiny Christmas, Over the Mountain Borders, Winter Village and many more! Whoever receives this card will certainly have Hap-Pea Holidays!

Valerie used the Reveal Wheel Semicircle Add-On and the Circle Add-On. She added the Mini String of Lights to divide the top section and a Fancy Wavy Banner to divide the the scenes at the bottom. The smallest Puffy Cloud Border made just the right size clouds for Tiny Christmas Santa to fly above!

Thanks so much for creating this amazing inspiration, Valerie!

Now let’s see how our wonderful Design Team was inspired by the challenge theme!
