Anything Goes for Cute Card Thursday!

Hello there friends!  Have you been busy with your Christmas festivities?  I am doing a “run-run Rudolph” right now and trying to finish up my Christmas cards let alone some baking, preparing for a Christmas dinner and finish wrapping up presents!!   It is the fun of the Holiday Season and I enjoy spending time with my family, so I look forward to seeing them all!

It’s a new challenge today over at Cute Card Thursday!  Since it’s that time of year and busy, we made this any easy “ANYTHING GOES” challenge for you!!  We are looking forward to seeing what you’re making!

Since I am trying to finish up some Christmas cards, I thought I’d try and work on some doing “mass production” of a design.  I only do so many of these before I have to switch things up, but I thought these turned out pretty cute:

I have used the My Favorite Things “Filled with Joy” card kit (sold out) to make these plus I have pulled out the MFT “Simply Snowflakes” stamp set (retired) to clear heat emboss the background and then rubbed some Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink over it.  The panel was cut out with the MFT Die-namics Blueprints 27 and the heat embossed sentiment strip was cut out with the MFT Die-namics Essential Fishtail Sentiment Strips.

Here you can see how I’ve pieced together the snowman.  The die in the card kit cuts out everything including the letters.  I’ve cut his top hat with some black felt paper that was also included in the kit and then I decided to cut out the snowman head so that I could cut out those tiny eyes and mouth with the felt paper as well!  So if you happen to get this card from me, please be sure to rub your finger over the felt pieces in his hat and face!!  I very carefully and lovingly placed each tiny felt dot in!! 🙂  I think that the blue snowflake background really makes him stand out even more!

On an even closer look at the card, you can see that I’ve added a sequins snowflake to each snowman’s hat and then added some sequins to the card background.  I filled each one of these with some silver Stickles.  The snowman head was popped up with a foam circle and the rest is just glued down.

Hope you’ve enjoyed my card today!  Please be sure to check out what the rest of the design team has for inspiration and come add your creation to the gallery over on the Cute Card Thursday blog too!

I’ll be back again soon!

  1. This joy card brings a smile love the snowman “O” in joy. Bright and cheerful. I think I’m closing the door to my craft room until next week. I still have gifts to wrap grocery shopping and just maybe bake a batch or two of cookies. Have a blessed Christmas.

  2. What a fun, and wonderful design with such attention to detail as always! I love the bits of felt and especially the silver Stickles inside the sequins! I just love this cool card and how you made multiples! Wishing you a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends! -hugs!-

  3. Oh, my goodness, I absolutely LOVE this! Wish I’d seen this kit earlier (had to go take a peek). A person could just keep on making card after card. Fantastic! Thank you so much for sharing with us at Double D!

  4. Thank you for sharing your card in Creative Crafters Challenge! I love the snowman and the card is sure to bring joy to the person receiving. Looking forward to seeing your next entry.

  5. I love your card. I’ve barely gotten any done and I’m running out of steam from running kids around, parties, and chasing two toddlers. Maybe next year I can be more on the ball. I haven’t even finished shopping.

  6. Cute snowman card. The embossed snowflakes a bit of blue in the background is perfect for the sentiment. Thanks for sharing with us at Double D Challenge Blog. We hope you will join us for future challenges,

  7. Vicki, these are beautiful cards, my friend! I love the awesome snowmen and their remarkable black felt hats embellished with a snowflake sequin! The background with the embossed snowflakes and sponged blue around them is gorgeous. At first glance, I thought the beautiful sequins with silver stickles were clear buttons! Love these card, my friend. Sorry I’ve been missing; been quite busy! Hugs and Merry Christmas, my dear friend! I’m off to SCS to see if these beauties are there!
