Chrissy Cards # 4

Now, for those who use SU regularly out there, please do not despise me for the next statement.....but I have NEVER used Kraft (or Crumb Cake as it is now called) EVER!!! I have seen so many pretty and divine things done with it, but never been inspired to do anything with it.

Continuing my run of non traditional Chrissy Cards, I decided to drag out the Kraft and see what I could come up with. I wanted to keep it relatively clean and avoid stuffing up!!! this is what I came up with......3 designs, based on the fun Festive Favourites. I purchased this set 2nd hand and the main large stamp and been separated into 3 smaller ones, so I just had to peel and stamp the trees, reindeer an snowmen as I needed. to bling them up just a bit, i added some sparkle with brads and rhinestones, but not symmetrically....just to keep things interesting.

I love the reindeer especially and have made more of this layout and also done it in landscape too. have blinged the 3rd and 4th reindeer's nose on these ones. 

I am especially wrapped with how the snowmen turned out. I was going to Kindyglitz the "snow", but love the clear rhinestones much it a more 3D feel.

The effect on the background of the card was done by randomly stamping the small motif stamp from this set in Versamark. it worked so very least I think so. 

So I have gotten over my first Kraft (Crumb Cake) hurdle...and believe me when I say I now have more to share with you in the weeks to come.

Thanks so much for dropping in.

Glad that I have "converted" you to the value of crumb cake. Yes ... it is not for EVERY card ... I will grant you that ... BUT ... it is a really useful colour that goes with almost ANYTHING! Did you get some cardstock too???? These are sweet and snowy and very Christmassy! Hugs xxaxx
