Frosty the Cupcake...

...was a very happy soul, with brown twig arms and a carrot nose and two eyes made out of coallllllllll! Sorry, I just couldn't help myself...giggle!!!
Here's a happy little Christmas card for today. I just love love LOVE these darling Christmas Cuppies from Taylored Expressions. And guess what?!? The Christmas stamp sets are on sale for 20% off until July 25th! Woo you can pick up some cute new Christmas stamps and get a big head start on your holiday cards.

I chose an image from Home Sweet Home and stamped Frosty Cuppie with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White. Then I coloured him with copics and cut him out with square Nestabilities. I added some shimmer to his hat with my red Spica glitter pen. I stitched him to a scalloped square of chocolate chip. Oh, and I should tell you the layout I used is Jen's Sketch For You To Try.

Aside from the white cardstock, the rest is all SU and the patterned paper is Ski Slope. I used my snowflakes border punch along the bottom of the red piece then tied some baja ribbon in a knot. I like how it looks a little like a bow tie. My favourite Christmas card embellishment is a ghost snowflake and Jen's sketch was calling out for me to add one. I backed it with a circle of olive so it would show up a little better then added a white Candy Dot to the center and two more in the corner. I love these candy dots because they're self adhesive, they have a mat finish and you can colour them with copics or pencils!

Well that's my Christmas card for this week.
Thanks for stopping by!
