Adorable Happy Holiday Critters Inspiration with our Guest Designer Valerie

Our Happy Holiday Critters challenge has one more week until the gallery closes! We are so impressed with all the great entries so far! We hope you will check out all the amazing inspiration and join the fun!

Today we are happy to share another fantastic Happy Holiday Critters card by our Guest Designer Valerie!

This tall slimline design is perfect for Valerie’s multi-layered Winter Village scene! It is complete with adorable yetis snowboarding and enjoying frosty treats!

Using a combination of Stitched Hillside Borders and Simple Stitched Hillside Borders, all cut from Pixie Dust Sparkle cardstock, Valerie was able to create the look of a charming winter village on a snow-covered mountainside!

I love that Valerie added a fun interactive element by creating a slider for the cool snowboarding yeti!

Valerie included the Tiny Christmas Santa with the sleigh and reindeer from Over the Mountain Borders at the top! She used two patterns from the Into the Woods Remix collection: the clouds of Spruce Remix and the happy orange stripes of Oak Remix!

Thank you so much for joining us for this challenge, Valerie! We loved sharing your amazing cards; your creativity totally inspired us!

Happy crafting to all of our Fawnatics friends!

Jessica‘s gorgeous holiday card features Happy Mail, Mini Wreath and Stitched Snowflakes!

Christy built cute little Christmas scenes using Peekaboo Backdrop and images from Ho-Ho-Holidays, Christmas Dreams, Holiday Helpers and Toboggan Together!

Karin‘s beautiful alcohol inked background is set off behind an Outside In Stitched Heart! Her lovely design includes Scripty Love and a Fancy Wavy Banner with a sentiment from Wavy Sayings!

I love how Samantha incorporated the Ready Set Snow Shaker Add-On in her beautiful Frosty Fairy Friends design!

Caly‘s brilliant design combines two interactive elements with Flippin’ Awesome and Slide on Over! She filled the flip panels with our Village sets!

Samantha carried her adorable Shadow Box Card scene featuring Holiday Helpers all around the outside of the box!

Franci got really clever and used the A Little Sparkle coordinating die to create an adorable little key chain! She stacked together two layers of cardstock around two layers of craft foam! To make the key chain more sturdy you can laminate the cardstock layers!

Joyce combined the cute penguins from Toboggan Together, Snow Cool and Here We Go A-Waddling to create a very merry Flippin’ Awesome card!
