Critter Christmas..


I head back to NYC later today - looking forward to seeing Hubby and my furchildren..

So continuing from my last 2 posts here is another Christmas card variant for you..

I made these when I was colouring for the 3rd Daily Marker colouring challenge..I miss it.

Once again because these Mama Elephant critters have banners, I figured they would work for Christmas.

I coloured them and die-cut them, but initially I thought they were not Christmassy enough and so made them a hat...hated that idea (or perhaps it was poor execution..), scrapped that and this is what I ended up with -

I used a Lawn Fawn stitched square die to cut all the Christmas papers..that are ancient and from my stash.

I also did something I have NEVER EVER DONE before..I cut a stamp in half (falls off chair) yep, I couldn't find a stamp that fit the banner..I am not buying anymore Christmas stash, so needs must. As you can tell, I am still alive and survived this traumatic experience..

Super simple cards that made good use of my stash.



  1. Love love love and the paper does all the heavy Chirstmas lifting for you. Did I mention I love?

  2. I love the cards! Lovely card backgrounds.

  3. Aww these are really cute Claire… and love the scrummy papers! :-)
    I am the same… struggling to find Christmas Sentiments that will fit in my die cut sentiment tags, banners etc… gosh it really shouldn't be this difficult!! Lol
    Glad you survived your traumatic experience hun
    Big hugs, Sue B xx
