Christmas in July Challenge

Cardz TV is having a Christmas in July challenge. The challenge is to make a Christmas card and use an animal. This is what I came up with.

I started with a Kraft card stock base cut and scored to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card. My patterned papers are some left over from a stack I got a couple of years ago. The red mat was cut at 4" X 5 1/4" and the green snowflake paper is cut at 3 3/4" X 5". I inked around the edges with some Tim Hotlz Tea Dye distress ink.

My little beaver is from the Winter Frolic Cricut Cartridge. I cut him at 3". I used some Tim Holtz Gathered Twigs ink to ink the beavers tail and stomach pieces. I added some white faux stitching to his hat and scarf and also around the edge of the green mat. My sentiment is from the Cardz TV home for Christmas stamp set and is stamped in some Rich Cocoa Memento Ink. I added a small button in the shape of tree that I threaded with a piece of twine. the beaver is attaqched to the card with some foam tape. Thanks for stopping by.
