This week at the 52CCT the Design Team is looking for an Embossed Background. Using a SVG file from My Scrap Chick called, Christmas Quick Card Bundle I made my card using my Cricut machine. Before assembling, I embossed the top card. With the center deer cut out, I made a second card.

This week’s theme at Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge is a Christmas project inspired by a Christmas Song or Carol. My card is based on the old classic, Frosty the snowman. I am using my Cricut Explorer Air and a SVG file by My Scrap Chick called Happy Snowmen Group of 3, Easelcard. I added details with Copic markers and White Gel pen. I also used patterned papers by Lawn Fawn.

Click here to go to challenge blogThe Design Team at C.R.A.F.T. are thinking of Spring and Easter on the official first day of Spring. To celebrate the end of Winter we are looking for a Spring/Easter card. I used an adorable Easter basket called, LizzyLove IMG35 by Odd Ball Art Co.  I love digital stamps because you can make the image any size you want. I made two A2 cards to demonstrate this. I coloured the images with Copic markers. I used various papers from my stash and some dies – bunnies, sentiments, and frame to complete my design.
