Have a Cosy Christmas


I know - making a Christmas Card right in the middle of Easter Holidays is crazy - but for Lawnscapings Coloring challenge I wanted to make something where I got to do a lot of coloring and created this little scene. Hope I'm not disqualified!!
If you want more "springy" cards or if you are doing the Lawnscaping Blog Hop, please scroll down one post.



I'm also entering this card for the Household and non paperscraps challenge at Moxie Fab world. To build up this scene I used scraps of  insulation tape that Mikael was just about to throw away after having worked on our new windows. I discovered that this tape is actually much better than my ordinary 3d pads, for multi layered cards like this, because it is half as thick so the scene doesn't stand out as much. It was cheap anyway (-: so in the future I might visit his carpenter's box a bit more often than usual!!!
 It's also for the "Favorite tool challenge" at Simon Says Stamp (I couldn't live without my large "household" scissors - they are the best when cutting out images like these) and the "Anything goes" challenges at Papertake Weekly and and ABC dt challenge .

Have a wonderful Easter, hugs, Karin

Fabulous, Karin! I use the tape all the time, since it's so much cheaper - and just double when you want something 'taller'. Voila!
This scene is incredible - I love the twine detail & those happy little pets waiting for Santa :)
