Natalie & Amy's 'Cute & Cuddly Christmas' Challenge

 Good morning everyone, thank you for stopping by. 

I am here today with my card for the new challenge over at Natalie & Amy's and our challenge to you this month is 'Cute & Cuddly Christmas'. I used this adorable Humphrey's Corner image called 'First Christmas' to make a first Christmas card for a little one who was born in July and named Mason. I got this idea from another blog sometime a go but I cannot find it now so if anyone knows who it was please let me know so I can give credit.

I started with a 6" scalloped square card blank and used a really old snowflake stamp and distress ink's in frayed burlap and tumbles glass to create the background, then cut the large 'M' on my Silhouette along with the sentiment. I used the out of frame cut to cut this super cute little ellie out, coloured with promarkes and flexmarkers before I added glamour dust to his hat trim for a bit of sparkle. Finished off by mounting the image and mat on foam tape for some dimension. All supplies are listed below with those available from Natalie & Amy in RED.

I love how this turned out so may have to try it again but with a difference.
