Cute Card Thursday

Christmas comes early to CCT this week. For challenge ~ 13 it's

Xmas Cards
The challenge this week is to make a Christmas card!! We thought
we'd give
you a helping hand to get your cards started early this year and
we have a
fabulous CD of Christmas designs which Wendy of OOh La La
has kindly
donated as a prize to be given to one randomly
chosen winner.

For this Xmas card I used papers from a Hot of the Press Xmas pad
and backed them with Stampin Up cardstock. For the small panel on the right I
used a Magnolia snowflake stamp and stamped them on with SU heat and stick
powder and stampin' glitter. The oval behind Tilda was made with my cricut and I
embossed it with a cuttlebug embossing folder. The winter bench and the Tilda
were both coloured in with prismas and zest it. Tilda's fur also has
diamond stickles on it. And to finish the card off I added some lilac with gold
edging ribbon and some diamond gems.

Oval:- Cricut Cartridge, Plantin
Embossing Folder:- Swiss Dots
Stamps:- MagnoliaPaper:- HOTP
Cardstock:- Stampin Up

Some gorgeous DT cards this week to help you get some inspiration, so you can get a head start on your Christmas cards. Why not pop over to the Cute Card Thursdy blog and leave a comment and a link to your card. You could win a fabby Xmas CD this week too!!
