This week’s challenge at Crafty Hazel Nut’s Christmas Challenge is to make a card using something that begins with H. H is for Rocking HORSE! I coloured my card with Copic markers. The Digi file is from Bugaboo Stamps called, “Christmas Rocking Horse“. The sentiment is a by Just Rite Stamps.

For this week’s Crafty Hazelnut’s Christmas Challenge, we would like to see a Quick and Easy Card. While my card may look like it would take a while to make it was simply a matter of cutting 3 frames, inking the background, stamping the sentiment and pasting it together. The whole card took me less than 15 minutes. I used Memory Box Die – Debutante Frame and Lamp Post Frame, Tim Holtz’s Oxide Distress Inks, JustRite Re-enforcement die, ribbon, gems, and paper from my stash. The sentiment is from Avery Elle.
We tend to make more female cards than male cards. With Father’s Day coming we are challenging you to make either a Father’s Day card, or a card more suitable for a guy. For this challenge I used an adorable stamp by Dr. Digi’s House of Stamps called, Summer Holidays.” I coloured the image using my Spectrum Noir markers. I fussy cut him out and put him aside. Next using a retired map background stamp by JustRite I stamped a piece of 4.25 x 5.5 white and kraft card stock. I coloured the backgrounds with Distress Inks. I made one card suitable for a Happy Retirement card and the other to wish someone a great holiday.

I love making my own embellishments, especially flowers, but when I started looking for inspiration for this week’s challenge in my embellishment box I come across a number of these little origami dress I made last year but never used them.
I started with a background stamp (retired) from JustRite. I stamped it on yellow toned patterned paper. Next I die cut a dress dummy from Memory Box, then popped up my dress on it. I added a belt using Stickles and a button I made from MFT button dies. Next I die cut more buttons using the small and large button dies from MFT and threaded them and popped them up using foam tape. I also added a spool of thread and needle and thread I made using dies from MFT and Memory Box. I also created my own “gems” using gold stickles. I hope you like the results.
Embellishments I made: dress with belt, buttons, gems, needle and thread, spool of thread.
