My Favorite Things and Crafter's Companion Dashing By Christmas card

Hello everyone and welcome to the July Challenge over at ABC Christmas Challenges. The aim of our challenge is to help us avoid the Christmas rush and stress of getting all our cards ready at the last minute, and I hope you will join us so you'll have a growing pile of lovely cards to send out.

Our themes this time are

N for Name
O for On... Skates etc


A little prize from Samantha who is our host this month 


Neat & Tangled

"We are a small company located in Northern Delaware, and have been in business for 5 exciting years! Our focus is on producing products that inspire creativity, and help to spread happiness!

We love interacting with our card making friends, so be sure to keep up with our blog, and follow us on our social media channels!" 


I went for O for On and have my little friend here having fun on her toboggan.

1) First, create the background by taking a square piece of white card and ink up the clouds using a stencil.

2) Add double-sided adhesive film to some white card and die cut the hillside from it. Remove the film and sprinkle glitter all over it to create the snow. If you have glitter card, you can use that instead. Raise the hill on foam and add it to the cloudy square.

3) Die cut the tree frame using Crafter's Companion/ Sheena Douglas Christmas Deer die and ink the bark through the die before removing it. Snip off the deer from the bottom of the frame and keep it for another project. Go over the trees with some glue and sprinkle on some more glitter.

4) Layer up the card with a blue pierced mat on the base card, then put on the hillside and finally raise the tree frame with some foam tape.

5) Stamp and die cut the little girl using the MFT Dashing By set and colour with Copic markers. Raise her on foam tape and place her on the hill.

6) Stamp, colour and fussy cut a little bird and place it in the tree.

7) Finish off by fussy cutting a blue banner and stamp and emboss the sentiment in white. Add this to the card and glue a couple of tiny snowballs to either side.

The ABC Challenges DT have lots of inspiration over on the blog and you have until 31st July to add your entry over there. It could be you winning one of the prizes!
