ABC Christmas Challenge - T is for...

It's Delphine's turn to host the ABC Christmas Challenge...where the theme this fortnight is:

 'T is for Tiny'
We want to see you create a set of 4 tiny cards or tags...this should help you build up your stash!

We are sponsored for this challenge by our very own Lacey, and her Stamp and Create store:


The prize is a $25 gift certificate!

My cards are 4x4 inches square...the perfect size for using some of the smaller Penny Black images. The ones I've used are 'Deer in Skates', 'Fur Collared' and from the 'Cristmas Critters' & 'jollie follies' sets.



I kept the same layout for all of the cards...cutting the images and mats out using my circle & square Nesties (Lacey has a fabulous range of Nesties here at Stamp & Create). I used a couple of different Cuttlebug folders ('Snowflakes' and 'Ice Crystals') on red & green Core'Dinations card...sanding over the raised areas to reveal the core. The snowflakes were cut using Marianne Designs Creatables & Cuttlebug dies.

Here are some close-ups of the cards:



I'm also entering these cards into the foloowing challenges:
