Joyful Hedgehogs!!

First off, sorry this post is a little late, but Blogger was down all morning!! Argh!!


I had SO much fun with the Tri-Fold Snowman card the other day, that I decided to make another one, but change it up a bit!

The first one was 4 and 1/4 inches tall, so this time I made one that is 5 and 1/2 inches tall so it fits properly in a regular envelope. I chose a new Hedgehog stamp that I got at Stamp Art last week! These two little cuties are flying down a hill on their sled! I stamped them on shimmery white cardstock in Archival Versafine Black Onyx ink and coloured them in using my SU markers. The dp I used this time is some of my favourite Basic Grey Fruitcake paper which is double sided. I used the little snowflakes stamp from the SU set called, appropriately enough, Snowflakes! I used it to stamp some flakes in Old Olive along the green edge that shows on the right hand side...it just looked a little plain without them. The flap I punched with the Slit Punch is moved up a little farther this time, more towards the middle. The frame is punched with the Giga Scalloped Circle Punch out of Ruby Red cardstock and I used my Mat Pack to make the holes in each scallop. I stamped the sentiment on a scrap piece of the dp, attached it to the card and added the Hodgepodge bookplate to it and then added some grosgrain ribbon and some fibre I had that happened to match!! Yay, a hedgie Christmas card!!



Here is the image when the card is opened up!!

Well, I've been getting a great response about my Kard Kontest and I hope you'll all have a chance to play! I CAN'T WAIT to show you all the new release High Hopes stamps and the cards that I've made playin' with them!! But you'll just have to wait until Friday!!! Heehee!!

Oh, Kimmie!
I LOVE that paper (I have so wanted to buy it, but keep resisting ;^)* and the way you "did it up" is such a wonderful use of it. Bravo! (I bow to your talent, gal!)
