A Magical Christmas Card with Samantha

Samantha M shares a beautiful Christmas card with magical Happy Holiday Critters to inspire you today!

Samantha’s sleigh pulled tiny unicorns is so clever! These magical critters are right at home above the white and vellum Puffy Cloud Borders! Samantha combined unicorns from Unicorn Picnic, Winter Unicorn and A Little Sparkle to pull the sleigh from Ho-Ho-Holidays.

How cute is that unicorn riding in the sleigh?

To add even more magical detail, Samantha used the Snowflake Trio Stencil to add pretty snowflakes with white embossing paste.

Thanks so much for sharing this brilliant inspiration with us, Samantha!

The Happy Holiday Critters challenge runs for 3 weeks and will be open until Sunday December 6! We can’t wait to see what you will create!

Karin‘s rainbow trees are from our Snow Day stamp set! That pretty greeting is also found in this cute and classic set! This is such a beautiful slimline design!

Samantha backed her charming Christmas Fishes seaweed tree with lots of sparkle! Her cute little scene includes the happy Winter Narwhal!

Franci‘s whimsical little scene features the tree from Christmas Dreams. I think those cute Snow Cool penguins might have some trouble fitting it inside their home! That perfect greeting is from Merry Messages!

I love how Caly made the tree cookies the star of her card! This adorable design features How You Bean? and the Christmas Cookie Add-On! She created a kitchen counter backdrop with the Brick Stencil and Woodgrain cardstock!

Samantha M created a gorgeous rainbow of trees from the Snow Day set! The beautiful sentiment is from that set as well. She added pretty texture in the background with Snowflake Trio Stencil!

Joyce made her Christmas Dreams tree stand out with some beautiful ink blending with Victorian Velvet and Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink! The cute Cheery Christmas critters are busy trimming the tree!

Christy‘s warm and rosy scene is a combination of Christmas Dreams and Den Sweet Den! The pretty tree takes center stage inside the Stitched Den!

Jessica‘s underwater scene shines the spotlight on the unique Christmas Fishes tree! She combined lots of fish-filled sets to complete this festive holiday gathering!

Jenn‘s gorgeous design features the sweet Christmas tree from the Trim the Tree set! She used her inky magic with Distress regular and oxide inks on the tree and the colorful background. She finished the card with a sentiment from Winter Scripty Sentiments and the Snowflake Border!

Samantha’s Woodland Scene Inspired by the Card Sketch

Samantha joins us today to share a beautiful woodland scene with a nod to the sketch! Our Card Sketch challenge will be open until this Sunday, November 1 at 11:59PM ET.

Samantha combined the “woods” sets: Into the Woods and Joy to the Woods to create this gorgeous design! The birch trees found in Joy to the Woods represent the columns in the card sketch. She left the sentiment in the same place as on the sketch. She white embossed it on vellum then fussy cut it out for a really elegant look!

Samantha colored the fox from Into the Woods and the little cardinal from Joy to the Woods with Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers to give her design a bright pop of color!

To create an awesome finishing touch before assembling the card, Samantha stenciled the Snowflake Trio on the Black Licorice background with white embossing paste.

Thank you for sharing with us today, Samantha! This card is just so gorgeous!
