Zig Zag gelly Roll

Good Morning!
The sun is shining but its a frosty morning what better to share than a Christmas card?

No I am not joking!
How could I not use this cute guy on a card?
I coloured him with distress inks when I was making my card for my ABC Christmas card DT card and well I love him so much just had to make him into a card too! I seem to be having a bit of a yellow phase… But I think it works well with the recycled Kraft card I kept from a package I had for Christmas… seemed fitting to use it to make a Christmas card don’t you think?

I saw the Christmas challenges with Sketches Sketch and just had to play along I love the layout and had die cut cut the image and the circle behind so when I saw the sketch and looked at the image on my desk it was just perfect.

Zig Zag Gelly roll
I have stamped the back layer of Kraft with a mini star stamp and they are yellow… Then added some mustard seed distress inks to the yellow die cut corners, Barry’s stars and feet and nose are highlighted with glossy accents and I have made the faux zig zag stitching with a white gelly roll pen, the 4 larger yellow stars are hand cut as I do not have a star punch (YET) tehhehe and lastly I have used some of my new brown Twine.. got to love twine.

the challenge I am playing along with are:
Christmas challenges with Sketches  - Sketch above...
Craft Us Crazy - Christmas, Anything New and/or Humorous.
Paper Play - In Stitches.
Crafts and Me – Christmas.
Papertake Weekly: Die cute special.
Dream Valley - Anything Goes.

Happy Thursday and see you soon xx
