A Christmas Card swap


Today I am here to share with you a Christmas card I made for a swap over at Kit and Clowder.

I have used the gorgeous stamp Spritz from Saturated Canary which I purchased back in 2012 as he reminded me of my Hunter who was born in August 2012 😉

I had so much fun colouring him up and coming up with the card design!

Here is the finished design

I started with a kraft base, a white layer which I have used a stencil and gold colour shine by Heidi Swapp. Popped little Spritz up, did some heat embossing in gold and added some twine, some bling and a La-La Lands die cut from a Heidi Swapp 6×6 paper.

Here is a close up of the little guy

SKIN: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04 and R20
HAIR: E21, E25 and E29
BLUE: BG000, BG01, BG05 and BG09
TEAL: BG10, BG13, BG49 and BG78
CANDYCANE: R22, R24, R29 and R59 Also C0

And a funny little story to tell too!! As I said, I brought this little cutie because he reminded me of Hunter. I had not told my big guy Jacob this information and while I was colouring him up Jacob came into my craft room and said “Mummy, why you colouring Hunter?” How cute!!

And lastly, just a little close up of the embossing

I also just wanted to quickly show you a before photo of this little guy which I coloured in 2012 shorty after I purchased him.

WOW!! I still actually believe how far I have come!! I remember being SO proud of my effort on the 1st one!!
