Totally Papercrafts Christmas

Happy Friday! Welcome to another Totally Papercrafts challenge! This week's challenge is an easy one - just create a Christmas card or project. Easy peasy! Our sponsors this week are Simon Say Stamp and DigiStamp Boutique, so I created this card using a recent image from DigiStamp Boutique. He's part of the Snow Peeps collection.

The layout is based on this sketch from the Sketch Satuday challenge blog. Sketches like this always give me a good excuse to bring out my trusty Creative Memories square punch. And that's my Fab Friday tip for the day - in a design like this use a square punch or die rather than try to cut the squares with your cutter. It's really hard to get all of your squares exactly the same size and, in a layout like this it's really helpful if your squares are completely identical in size and shape.

I'm off to brave a little belated Black Friday shopping. (My youngest daughter needs a coat or I probably won't be bothering right now.) Have a great weekend and, if you go out shopping too, be careful. (There are some pretty crazy people out there!)
