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!

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!

Samantha’s Whimsical Christmas Tree Lot!

Hey everyone, Samantha here with a project inspired by the current Oh Christmas Tree challenge! Christmas trees are such an iconic symbol of Christmas. Many families have many traditions surrounding the Christmas tree, and they create the perfect canvas for ornaments and trimmings.

 
I wanted to create a card surrounding the joy and whimsy of Christmas trees. So made a tree farm that is located deep in the snowy mountains. What makes this tree farm fun is that is run by the most joyful and enthusiastic yetis! Once you pick out your tree, they will gently place it on the roof of your car. The Yeti or Not stamp set is one of my most favorite Lawn Fawn sets. The yetis are so fluffy and have the sweetest expressions, and they are a perfect addition to any snowy or holiday scene! 

There is still time to enter your project in the Oh Christmas Tree challenge! It will be open until this Sunday, November 15th at 11:59 PM EST. We look forward to seeing your creation! 

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day!
