Christmas Creations 2012
The snowman is a Symphony bar wrapped in white cardstock. I cut the eyes and nose using my cricut and the Art Philosophy Cartridge. I used the CTMH chalk marker for the eyes. I used a black marker for the smile and then sponged a little blush ink on the cheeks. I found the hats at Tai Pan last year on clearance. The scarf is just fabric scraps.
Hot Chocolate Card: When I saw the October stamp of the month I thought of this idea. I used Desert Sand Cardstock for the base cut at 9 1/2 x 4 inches. I then scored it at 3 1/2 and at 4 inches. I used the Pear & Partridge paper packet for the patterned papers. The mittens are cut using the Cricut and the Artiste Cartridge and stamped with New England Ivy Ink. I tied a bow with hemp and created the pocket for the hot chocolate using pewter brads.
The last gift I made was super easy, but always gets rave reviews. I cover Hershey Nuggets with patterned paper and put in a bag. I like to tie a tag or small trinket with tulle.
