CAS Christmas April Challenge - Christmas Song

Hello there.  The April challenge at CAS Christmas starts today and this month it’s all about Christmas Songs.


With the world pandemic and physical distancing, I thought this new (and forgotten 🙈) Christmas Hugs stamp from Wild Rose Studios would be a lovely way to keep hugs alive.  It’s too bad this company went out of business because they had some of the sweetest and cutest stamps.  Anyway, here’s my card. 


Very simple steps here.  Stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on an X-Press It cardstock panel die cut with an A2 Stitch Rectangle Set 2 die from My Favorite Things.  Coloured it with Copics.




Then on black cardstock, white heat embossed the sentiment from My Favorite Things Bitty Holiday Wishes.  Added a few clear sparkly sequins to finish,


Easy-peasy, clean and simple!  To see more inspirations from our guest Birgit (Rappot Fran Ett Skrivbord) and my wonderful team, click HERE.  Thank you for visiting.  Stay well... stay home and craft on!

This is the sweetest image and I love the furry look of the bear and Santa
hat and jacket. This is a fun challenge and I will be humming Christmas songs all day long. It sure breaks up the monotony and adds cheer to the day.
