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!


Have a wonderful day!

Kara‘s sky is seriously spectacular! She created a pull-tab card using the airplane and banner from Simply Celebrate Spring! Those puffy clouds look a lot like some Lawn Fawn critters! Kara stamped the images in light blue ink and did some incredible no-line coloring!

The Let’s Toast Pull-Tab Add-On allows the cute little plane to cross the sky with a fun sentiment from Elphie Selfie! See if you can spot which sets these cloud critters are from and leave us a comment below!

Now let’s check out the inspiration from our amazing Design Team!

Jessica‘s amazing night sky is so perfect for her tall slimline card design! She added an Upon a Star fox and sentiment and a pretty Forest Border silhouette!

Christy created a whimsical little scene with Butterfly Kisses! What is more spectacular that a sky filled with butterflies!

Franci‘s fabulous space themed sky is filled with Out of this World planets and a cute little astronaut! I love this view through the spaceship window!

Who says the sky has to be blue! Joyce‘s sky is filled with happy color and happy birds! The little bunny from Coaster Critters looks adorable flying the plane from Plane and Simple!

Grace took the Butterfly Kisses critters out of the meadow and placed them among the clouds in this Center Picture Window Card design!

These amazing clouds and beautiful rainbow are perfect in Samantha‘s sunny yellow sky! The adorable little Winter Unicorn (without her winter scarf) looks right at home in the dreamy backdrop!

The Winter Skies bear couple are enjoying the dramatic sky on Karin‘s beautiful Reveal Wheel card! I love the splatters of gold in the sky!

Samantha‘s sky is filled with raindrops from the Rainy Backdrop but the cute little Butterfly Kisses bunny sees the rainbow! She used an umbrella from Hello Baby and the little rainbow from Rain or Shine Before ‘n Afters!

Leave it to our beach-loving friend Jenn to create a card filled with a gorgeous sunny sky! She combined lots of new Summer 2019 products including Sunray Backdrop, Hammock and Trees, On the Beach and Hello Border!

A Whimsical Christmas Card by Samantha!

Happy Friday! Samantha here with a card that is inspired by the current Winter Holiday challenge. The holiday season is such a magical time of year. I love all of the beautiful colors, decorations, and spirit of the season. I created a whimsical card featuring the cutest unicorn who is frolicking in her glittery frozen wonderland.

I love combining different Lawn Fawn products together, because you are able to make really fun scenes. I used the castle from Critters Ever After and paired it with the Winter Unicorn set. The Cloudy Hillside Pop-up Add On die cut was the perfect addition to my scene, because it helped add depth and dimension to my card. The Mini Snowflakes die cuts are one of my favorite Lawn Fawn products. The snowflakes are so cute and create an amazing snowy backdrop. For extra sparkle, you can add rhinestones to the centers of the snowflakes!

The Winter Holiday challenge is going on through Sunday, so you still have time to create a project for it!  Please check out the challenge to see what the design team and the participants have created, because there is tons of inspiration there. I hope you have a wonderful day!


Wishing you a wonderful crafty weekend!
