Cute Card Thursday #13

This week's challenge at CCT is to make a Christmas card! If this doesn't give me the push I need I don't know what else will!! I am the person who waits to the last minute and panics making up cards!! I should start making 1 a week!! At first I thought this was going to be a problem because Christmas is like the only time I don't do cute!! BUT then I remembered my H&S images from Marlene's blog candy! I have been wanting to use some of these wintery images. I matted the main image on bazzil bling cardstock. The only patterned paper I used was a thin strip of green from Basic Grey's figgy pudding. Ribbon is from Micheal's, flowers are primas and the rub-ons are creative imaginations. I like the flowers because it looks like it has snow on it!! I colored the image in with prismapencils and gamsol. I went over the fluffy look with liquid applique and added glitter before I heat it to get it puffy. I used stickles for her wings. The white cs is cryogen white and has a light sparkle (hard to notice) on it!! I love that stuff! I ran it through my fav tool at the moment - my cuttle bug!! Has anyone seen the new ones coming out??? I got a couple. I have to wait til August but I am so excited!! I got an argyle one that is too cute, a pumpkin one for Halloween and a birthday one with candles!!

Thanks for getting me started on my x-mas cards. Maybe I will keep on making them and be ahead of the game this year!!! Have a great morning!!!
