Over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge this week the topic is "buttons". Oh I so love using buttons so I had to have a go.
I decided to make three Christmas cards for the Docrafts Craft for Life Appeal. Here is a close-up of them below
I have used various scraps of backing papers, some are DCWV and Papermania, the others I don't know (that's why one card is slightly smaller as I didn't like such a big gap from the paper mats to the card edge!!). I have inked all the edges as I hate seeing the raw edges. The image in all three cards is a little Gorjuss girl sitting on a polar bear - now where have I been as I've only just realised the Gorjuss girls have been brought out in clear stamp sets as well? The images I have coloured in with my Promarkers and chose different colour tones for the outfits and hair to match the backing papers. The cards have been finished off with sentiments, buttons and flowers (some bought but the poinsettias are from Crafty Ann's Digi Store).
I am entering these cards into the following challenges:
One Stitch at a Time - Christmas
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes and option of bling
Crimbo Crackers - Anything goes Christmas
Charisma Cardz - Cutesy
Sew many Challenges - Use 2 different backing papers
