Holiday Card 32 - Z for Z-fold

Hello, it's me again!  I'm back with another holiday card!  I've been inspired this month by the alphabet prompts over at Beccy's Place and her sixth annual Month of Holiday Cards Challenge. Beccy is on the letter "T" but I'm jumping ahead to finish the alphabet - Woohoo!  For "Z" I made my first Z-fold card!

To make this card, I followed a Double Z-fold card tutorial at Beccy's Place.  The adorable image is Chimney Reindeer Peeker from Bugaboo Digistamps, and I went with the precoloured version and fussy-cut.  I hand-cut a white strip to simulate a snowy rooftop.  I stamped a sentiment from Pretty Pink Posh, added a die-cut snowflake corner (Wild Rose Studio), and finished off the card with a candy cane charm and several red and brown snowflake sequins.  The patterned paper is from ReFined Winter Story 6x6" paper pack.

I was inspired by the Bingo board at Catch the Bug, and I chose the top row: Sentiment, Bugaboo image, and charm (see candy cane charm near sentiment).

I would also like to support the following challenges: Alphabet Challenge R for Reindeer 1/3; Cardz 4 Guys Christmas Critters 2/3; Cardz TV 75 AG 3/3; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas AG Optional Beginning with "H" UE; Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper November UE; Creatalicious AG Optional Layer it Up UE; Cute Card Thursday Festive Colours UE; Happy Little Stampers AG w Dies UE; Jo's Scrap Shack AG 3/3; Joy Clair Inspiration Graphic (see below - I was inspired by the candy canes) UE; Just Keep on Creating November AG UE; PINspirational Inspiration Photo (I was inspired by the deer) 3/5; Scribbles Designs Reindeer Games 2/3; Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Baby It's Cold Outside 5/5

Thank you for looking at my card! Wishing you a joyful day!

Your 1st Z fold and it's fabulous. I love the Bugaboo reindeer. Your coloring is lovely and anytime anyone fussy cuts I think they should get extra points. Cute card![Bunny]```

Beccy said...

Love the fabulous image Kitty, and you did a great job placing it on your very first Z-fold! Love the colours. The snowflakes in the background are awesome and I love the sentiment with the tiny candy cane hanging next to it. Great card.

Great card, Kitty! When you told me about the Friday Freebie at Bugaboo last year, I was afraid to color them but I took the leap. I'm learning everyday. You have such an eye for putting the paper combinations together.
