How cute is this little Christmas girl with her little reindeer!?!  I love her steaming mug of cocoa, what a sweet little detail.  


Digital Stamping

The image is called All Wrapped Up and it’s part of the Winnie Christmas Wishes range from Polkadoodles.

I love, love, love using digital stamps! There are so many amazing designers all over the world offering quirky and unique digital stamp designs. I particularly like the stamps from Polkadoodles as they’re always so stinking cute without being too cutesy if you get my meaning!

Making the Embellishments

I wanted to keep the embellishments quite simple as the background on this card is fairly fussy. My Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die came in very handy. I cut the flowers from some leftover scraps of the Winter Rose papers and so they co-ordinate perfectly with the rest of my Christmas card. I’ve finished them off with a little gold gem in the centre of each.
