December Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media Challenge

How did it become December and time for another Mixed Media Challenge at Happy Little Stampers.    It is one of your favorite challenges - Anything Goes.

This time of the year you are always in need of more Christmas cards.  I have found an easy way to make a great looking card is to use the images from napkins.    I had one napkin with this snowman on it.  He is such a cute little guy.

I remove all the layers of the napkin until I just have a single ply of the image.  I adhere the image to card stock with gel medium or modge podge.  I mat the image with brown card stock and then stitch around the edge of the image.

The card is made on a kraft base.  I used a white patterned paper and stitched it to a brown mat.  A strip of patterned plaid paper was added across the top with another touch of red added underneath the plaid paper.  This was sewed onto to the white patterned paper.I had a new snowflake stencil that was crying to be used so I obliged.  The texture paste has a gritty texture to it.  I added a texture paste snowflake on the snowman image also.

I tied a brown twine bow on the card front.  A stamped sentiment was added to a die cut circle.  The image and sentiment were adhered with pop dots.

Here are a couple close ups of different parts of the card.

Please join us at Happy Little Stampers for the December Mixed Media Challenge of Anything Goes.
