Christmas Aminals


Supplies : Pattern Paper by My Minds Eye; Cardstock, Inks, Markers, Brads, Life's a Jungle and Snowfriends stamp sets by CTMH; Snowfall stamp set by PTI; other CS by Pebbles; Big Brads by American Crafts; Snowflake punches by Marvy; White gel pen by Sakura; Glitter CS by Doodlebug


Each week Sparkle hosts a Christmas card challenge on Sunday and this week I decided to go with an aminal theme :D I had so much fun with the winter alligator cards a few weeks back that I thought I'd try a couple using more of these darlings with the snowmen's hats again. Both the lion and hippo are paper pieced, I used the marker and white gel pen to highlight them. I also used some glitter paper for the snowflakes to add a little sparkle to the cards. Another quick post today. Don't forget to check out Sparkle's Blog for the challenge and have a lovely Sunday!

These are so cute Marjorie. How creative to think to put these animals on Christmas cards. I love the paper used on the card fronts as well. Yummy. And the snowflakes look great. I can see the glitter on some of them.
