The Spirit of Christmas
Cut a peace of 12 x 5.8 inch card stock and fold in half and crease. Then cut a peace of blue poka dot card stock to fit on front of your card.  Cut a 31/2 strip of decorative card stock to go up on the right hand side of your card stick to your blue spotted peace of card stock.  I put the ribbon on then before attaching your decorative card stock to your card.  This way you can tuck your ends under your card and hide them.  Attach to card with double sided tape in the middle and stitch around the edge with red straight stitch.

I then cut a red scalloped peace of red card stock with my Creative Memories Border Maker, I used my scalloped stitch Border maker cartridge.  I decorated my border with a row of white lace, and a row of red ribbon with stars on it.  I use my red double sided tape for the lace and ribbon.

I coloured my image with Derwent Water Coloured Pencils and then cut her out with scissors.  I used Wink of Stella pen on the fur, to add Sparkle.  Its hard to see in the photo.

I used my Stampin Up Stamps to stamp Merry Christmas and then cut out with my Scalloped Oval Punch and sponged around edge with real red ink.   I cut two more peaces of red scalloped card stock and placed on either side of my Merry Christmas sign.

I decorated my card with a tree button and a Santa button.  I found the felt tree at Riot Art.  I put red bling in the corners and one on my Merry Christmas sign.  Just have fun.
