Presents under the Tree

     I am such a fan of  Fabrika Fantasy images and I think I have every one they've made which has a winter or Christmas theme.  I plan to use all of them in doing my holiday cards this year.  Here's one of my favorites.  The idea of a squirrel standing out in the snow with his Santa hat on just tickles me to pieces!  :-D


     I used ProMarkers and gel ink to color the scene, then cut the image with a simple, square die from Spellbinders.  I also cut the green frame with a Spellbinders' die.  I found a scrap of sheet music dp, trimmed it to fit the width of the card and matted it with brown CS.  Behind that is another scrap of lightly patterned dp (embossed with a folder from Darice) and everything went onto a white card base.

     I added the hand-cut and matted sentiment and a red, polka dot bow to complement the red bow on the package in the image.

     I hope your weekend is going well.  I'm doing lots of crafting which I've missed while I was gone.  I'm going to try to cram in lots of card making since I'll be traveling again in a bit more than 10 days from now.  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
