Christmas mug

Hi there! I managed to create another card tonight for a couple of challenges out in blogland.

I pulled out the CAS-ual Fridays die that I purchased a while ago after winning a gift voucher to the CAS-ual Fridays store and decided to colour it in using my Copics for a bit of blending practice.
Next, I stamped the reindeer and snowflake from my NBUS stamp set by Simply Made Crafts/Helen Griffin (Traditional Christmas). To add more interest to my card base while at the same time keeping my card CAS, I used my score board to score a few lines and then swiped some warm grey ink cubes (Altenew) across to give the impression of a wood panel. To tie in the brown-grey colour of the wood panel, I used some brown baker's twine to add a bow to my cup, before popping up my cup using foam tape. I used my corner chomper to round the bottom corners of my card.

I'm playing at:

Jingle Belles - Rudolph and friends (or: Feature a creature)

52 Weeks to Christmas - Rendier of eland (Reindeer or moose)

SSS Wednesday - Anything goes

Beccy's Month of Holiday Cards - C for ... Copic colouring and Cup


  1. I am so impressed by your "wood panelling" Marianne! I actually thought it was patterned paper until I read how you created it. What a fabulous technique and definitely one I'm adding to my "must do" list! Love the Christmas cup and the fabulous sentiment too.

  2. Awesome wood paneling - and I love that pretty red cup with the reindeer!

  3. Wonderful card design with that gorgeous cup with the deer and snowflakes and I love the background you created to show that cup off.
