ABC Christmas Challenge ,,,,, K for Kids + Kraft

Hi all ,, I have done a Scoopy and lost a week !! Where did that go ?? I thought we still had another week to go before posting this challenge !! ,, oops ,,, !!

This time the theme on the ABC Christmas Challenge is chosen by the lovely Lacey and she chose

K is for Kids card or Gift Card Holder using KRAFT card stock.

Lacey has done a fab gift holder tutorial so hop on over to see it, I am going to make one too !!

We are sponsored by 2 fab Digi companies this week ,, Digital Delights and Karens Doodles, both are offering a choice of 3 digi images :-)

For my card I just HAD to use my brand new House Mouse St Nick Mouse stamp. I coloured the image with Copics and inked the edges with Stormy Sky distress ink. I used SU Crumb Cake card, which is their Kraft,, (I asked) and Cherry Cobbler, the papers are from an Echo Park Merry Christmas pad. I paper pieced the sack using a Kraft paper bag and the presents using paper from the paper pack front ( the designs are printed really small on the cover ! ) I stamped several snowflakes using sand memento ink and punched a border using a EK Success punch, this had tiny confetti flakes so I stuck a few of those on too. The big snowflake was punched with a Martha Stewart and a Woodware punch, I added a red card candy to the center The sentiment is from Hero Arts set and I just finished with loads of Star Dust stickles Smile

Our fab GD’s Heidi and Carol and the DT have made some gorgeous cards and gift cards for your inspiration so please hop on over to the challenge blog to see them ,,, AND Lacey’s fab tut ! Smile
