The Theme this month is Holidays

                                Hi everyone

                     Crafter's Companion is having a wonderful contest
this month. Please pop over to crafterscompanion-challenge. and take a look.

                       The theme this month is holidays. Just make a project with a holiday theme and enter. My card this month
this for Christmas, go figure.

                         I was looking on you-tube and found a side step
card. There are all kinds of ways to make them. I combined a few, and this is what I came up with.
                         I Started out with 2 sheets of Christmas card stock from DCWV called Mrs.Claus's Kitchen . With help from you-tube I found directions. I used the Crafter's Companion  Ultimate-Tool and made the score marks for cutting and folding.
                          The first sheet I used to make the card, the second I used to cut out figures to make them 3-D. The recipe card was also from the card stock. I haven't made the cookies yet but there is still time before Christmas. The winter scene was made from a package of buttons, I just cut the shanks off the back.The snow is made with a little glue and Martha Stewart flocking powder.


                                                                                      
The stamp I used this time is from the   Adorables set.                        
I just love these stamps.  This set is called Caring..                     The "north pole" sign post and the "Santa Claus is coming to town" sentiment fit perfectly. I used watercolor pencils to color in the sign post and  pop dots for a 3-D effect on the Santa sign.
