Christmas Card with Beccy's Place Christmas Goose Digi


This Christmas Goose digi stamp and sentiment are from Beccy's Place. From the way Goose looks, she chose naughty. If you like humorous stamps, Beccy has lots to choose from (the digi on this Chick with an attitude birthday card is a favorite). 

Paper is Søstrene Grene's Ann & Clara All Over the World origami paper block. Since origami paper is a bit thin, I backed it up with another sheet of plain white paper. I also used scrap packaging material behind the centerpiece rectangle to make it stand out (a tip picked up from Beccy's Place 13/04/21 Hot Tip Tuesday). It's a great way to upcycle cardboard material and a lot less expensive than the double stick foam tape I used to use (this Mice & Cheese birthday card shows how I use it).

I used a no-brand snowflake die jazzed up with pearls for embellishment. You can't see it, but this die is really too short to spread across the card width. I cut it in two and glued down each piece to meet the edges; the focal piece rectangle covers up the cut bit. 

Supply List

  1. Oooooh, I love the combination of colours on your card Shani, particularly the beautiful green. You did very well coordinating your markers with the paper and cardstock, everything matches perfectly. Great idea to add the snowflake bunting and tiny pearls in the background too, it's a lovely touch.
    Cheers,
    Beccy
