Get Cracking on Christmas – April {Purple Onion Designs}

Hi, crafty friends. We’ve reached the third Thursday of the month, which means it’s time to Get Cracking on Christmas.

This time, I have a fun slimline card to share featuring Cooper and Fiona from Purple Onion Designs. I actually created this card back in October, but ran out of time to share it before the holidays.

I used a couple of dies from My Favorite Things to create the window openings and the faux stitch edge around the white cardstock. I stamped the Snow Much Fun background stamp twice; once in gray ink on the white cardstock, and once in VersaMark ink that I white heat embossed on the red card base for a continuous look across the entire card. I also stamped and white heat embossed a sentiment from the Snow Much Fun sentiment set in the center of the card.

I colored both the images in greys and reds and mounted the white panel with the window openings using foam tape for dimension. This cat is like a grey version of Garfield, it’s too funny.

Fiona looks like she’s kind of done with Christmas, Shari creates so much personality in each of her critters.

I kept the card very simple, but did add a few snowdrift sprinkles from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards.
