Practicing Creativity

Jalapeño Pepper Christmas card

It's Friday and I'm in a festive mood – all ready for another Christmas card, this time with a Southwestern theme. The merry jalapeño pepper is a digi from the now defunct Meljen's Designs.

Such a pity, she had some really cute (and funny!) stamps, like the one on this 'No butts about it you're the cat's meow' birthday card. Tactile Studio's Cinco digital paper pack stays true to the Southwestern theme.

What do you think about the little bows? Aren't they cute? This is a new no-brand Chinese die I bought with a Amazon Christmas gift certificate. There are three bows in the pack and this one is the largest at about 2.5cm (1 inch in American). I'm beginning to get a rather good collection of these inexpensive dies and I daresay, they cut very well. Silver metal dots dress up the bows.

Supply List
Paper – cardstock, Tactile Studio Cinco digital paper pack
Digital stamp – Meljen's Designs Holiday Chili Pepper
Color – Caran d'Ache Luminance 6901 pencils
Dies – Die-namics fishtail banner dies, no-brand Chinese bows
Embellishments – silver metal dots
