Hello! It’s theme week at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, and this time we’re looking for cards with little Christmas critters. So long as your card features at least one small creature, it’ll meet the challenge theme.
I decided to use one of my Lawn Fawn stamps that doesn’t get a whole lot of inky love. I do think it’s cute, but it’s a bit of a pain to paper piece and I wasn’t in a mood for coloring. But I went ahead and pieced my scene from various designer papers and cardstock. For the bunny, I worked with a scrap of caramel brown cardstock to loosen the fibers in it, and then gently pulled the front and back apart into two pieces, to achieve a bit of a fuzzy texture. The card base is textured cardstock, although I’m not sure the texture shows in the photo. The layout for this card is this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge, squashed into a landscape-oriented rectangle.
What kind of Christmas critter will you use on your card – animal, elf, child? There are so many possibilities! Check out the design team’s makes if you need further inspiration. Once you’ve created your own card, link it to the 52CCT website by 7:00 p.m. Eastern time Friday, May 27. We’d love to have you join us!
