22 July 2022 MTTCC #39 Cutesy Christmas Theme DT cards

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! I'm just really enjoying creating Christmas cards this year! Haven't been keeping track but I guess I need to start addressing envelopes when I've got a few minutes while supper bakes or waiting for ink or paint to dry on my crafting table! This posting features my design team commitments for My Time To Craft Christmas challenge blog. #39 theme is about Cutesy Christmas. What do you think is cute? charming? quirky? Brings a smile to your face? 

MTTCC's #39 competition runs from July 22, 2022 to August 4, 2022. Make sure to find time to craft Christmas with us!

#1= Merry Christmas to Santa and the pets!

My first card has these cutesy enamel stickers that I'm sure I used for a card or two last year and I've still have a few more to use before I've bashed the sheet. I've used some non-traditional patterned cardstocks that are from my paper pad I'm trying to bash this year (Mint Berry paper pad by The Paper Studio). I've paired it with a gray textured paper for the scalloped focal background and the green cardstock top-folded base (4.5" x 5.5"). Black inking was used to keep everything from being too intense. Hot Off The Press Dazzles are the maker for the red hologram "MC". 


#2= Polar Bear Wish Christmas card

A few design and vendor notes: the enamel polar bear is from the same sheet as those used in card #1; the polar bear themed print paper is from a old paper pad by Martha Stewart. The wish die-cut tag is textured cardstock that I added the blue inked edging. Then I used a lighter blue glitter paint pen to create a spot that looked like the iceberg was cracking! The jewels and ribbon decorative tape are from my stash. The navy blue card mat is DCWV, I think. This made a cutesy wintery themed Christmas card!
