"Pick of the Week" - 14

Good Morning Everybody!
Gwyneth back with another "Pick of the Week".

I've been having fun playing with another digi-stamp from the Stamping Dragon Designs shop.

I've got another Christmas card for you this time, but this one is a bit "pink" for a baby girl's 1st Christmas.

Stamping Dragon Designs Items:
"Hippo Christmas" - found - Here - in the shop.
Consumables:
Super Smooth cardstock; ProMarkers and FlexMarker; Satin Board: 3 x different shades of Pink, Red; 1mm deep, double sided, foam tape; Ultra tacky red backed tape; Lace; Die-cut Holly; Red glitter glue; Silver Peel-offs; White glitter flocking; Wet Glue; Finger-lift Tap; Glue Gel
Equipment:
Circle Scissors; Score Board; Scissors; Corner Rounder Punch

After printing out the image I coloured it in using my markers and then put some wet glue on the white hat edge and pompom.  I then put white glitter flocking on this.  I used a circle scissors to cut out the digi and a mat to put behind it.

I also used my circle scissors to cut a series of pink and red circles from some satin board, folded them in half and stuck them together using quick grab wet glue.  I then went over the join laying down a band of red glitter glue.
The base card was made by scoring two sheets of satin board at the half way point.  One was cut along the score line and the other was scored again from front corner to corner.  I used finger-lift tape to attach the half sheet inside the other card, and the one scored diagonally was cut in half along the score line to give a half front card, to which lace was attached along the cut line using ultra tacky tape and the digi-stamp on its circular mat.

The card was further decorated with die cut holly leaves and silver peel-offs from my crafting stash.
So there you have it - one "1st Christmas" card - I hope you like it.

If you've left it a bit late and still need to finish your Christmas cards, but don't have time to go colouring in this little digi-stamp for yourself, then one version of "Hippo Christmas Coloured" is available in the shop - here.

Not long till Christmas everybody.  I hope that you've managed to get a lot of the little jobs you wanted to do ahead of time all done, and that the cards you are going to post are ready.
I hope you all have a lovely Christmas.

And that is it from me for today.
Marleen will be here next Monday with a "Pick of the Week" project to share with you all, Fran the Monday after that, and Tania will be sharing with you in three weeks time - I hope that you'll visit here again in four weeks time when I should be back with a new "Pick of the Week" card to show you - I'm hoping to produce a card for a child.
In the meantime you'll find lots of other posts popping up on this blog in between, so please do come back to have a look soon.
