Howdy! Merry Christmas to you all. It is just about here and we are winding down 2018. Boy does time fly. Today I have a card I made using digital images from the a2z Etsy shop. I had this on my mind after another fun coffee blog hop.
I started out by printing the background trees from the Hero Arts A Natural Christmas Digital Cut File on some Neenah cardstock. Then I sized a mug from the Sugartree Stamps Hug in a Mug digital kit. I put the tree background paper back in the printer and printed the mug right over it. I cut out the mug by hand.
Then on to creating the scene. I sized the deer, the tree, and bird to fit on my mug and cut them out using my Silhouette Cameo. All of these are in the Hero Arts A Natural Christmas Digital Cut File along with a couple more deer, a sentiment, another bird and a branch. I really like the look of this kit because it has a rustic feel. You can cut all of the images out of fun paper or color them. The deer is cut from a wood grain paper and the tree from a green paper with a very subtle pattern. The bird I colored with a Copic pen. The star is colored with a Gelly Roll metallic pen and the lights on the tree are done with Nuvo drops.
I almost forgot to mention… I popped up the mug using fun foam.
While getting ready to post this my darn camera was acting up and saying communication error when I tried to move the photos from the camera to my camera. Very frustrating when you need to get it done. I ended up getting a decent picture with my phone which was surprising. In case this happens to you it may be that your camera memory card is to full. Once I moved some photos off the memory card it all starting working as normal again.
There is more time to join in this month’s “Winter Wonderland” challenge!
