CCMC376 Christmas Cuties

There’s a super fun color combination this week over on Create with Connie and Mary!  I knew I wanted to pull out my new Christmas Cuties stamp set and try it on for size!  Come play along!

Here’s my card!  I love this bundled up little child!  Reminds me of my boys when they were little!


CCMC376 Christmas Cuties
Here are the details to recreate this card!

  • The base is 4-1/4 x 11, the front is embossed with the Soft Falling Embossing folder.
  • On the 3-1/8 x 4-1/4 piece of Whisper White, the bundled-up child is stamped with Black Stazon, then watercolored with Pale Plum, Lost Lagoon and Tip Top Taupe Ink Pads and the AquaPainter.  Also a little Pink Pirouette for the face and cheeks.
  • The greeting was stamped with Black Stazon, too.
  • 1/2 x 4-1/4 strips of Lost Lagoon, Pale Plum and Silver Glimmer Paper were adhered at the bottom of the Whisper White.
  • The two small snowflakes from Flurry of Wishes were stamped with Pale Plum and Lost Lagoon on Whisper White and punched with the Snow Flurry Punch.  The larger snowflake on the punch was also punched two more times from Silver Glimmer Paper to use behind the larger stamped one and give it a touch of glimmer!
  • Rhinestone Jewels were placed in the center of the snowflakes.

This is an adorable card! I love the frosted look that that the Glimmer Paper gives. With the little boys arms out I can’t help but think of Ralphie’s little brother on the movie A Christmas Story! 😀
