Funky Hand isn't just for Christmas..it's for everything!

Hello Get Funky! followers, Anice here this time. Our lovely Jackie set us quite a little crafty tester this month making a traditional Christmas card (well as traditional as Funky Hand gets anyway!) and then using Christmas papers to make a completely different sort of card.

All the Design Team are using the latest Funky Hand craft CD Twelve Crafters Crafting for both cards so without going on any further I'll let you see what I came up for this months challenge.  First here's my Christmas card..

It's an easel card using the template you will find on the Twelve Crafters Crafting CD ROM  The papers are all from the Merry Christmas collection from the CD. You'll also find the Christmas Tree digital stamp and sentiment. They have both been coloured using Promarker pens.  I blinged it up a bit with some green sequins around the top to get a bit more sparkle on the card.

The second card is completely different..

This was also made with papers from the Christmas CD Twelve Crafters Crafting, the collection I used is O' Christmas Tree.
I used two different papers from the collection and the 'It's a Boy!' topper was created in the workspace of the CD using the characters drop down section, in matching colours to the papers.  It's very easy to use the letters in the workspace, re size them to the size you want and then overlay them slightly so that they all become one word..obviously this is three words but it makes it easier to cut it out to make your own personalised topper.  I just added some very simple doodling onto the papers and letters with a black Sakura pen and added some blue foam hands and feet that I found at the bottom of one of my stash boxes!

There, I think that proves that Twelve Crafters Crafting can be used for other crafting as well as your Christmas cards

Making this card is good practice for me as we have two little boys about to be born into our family. So I'll be making baby cards very soon to send out!  I wont use this as both Mommys will probably have seen this one here and that would be a bit naughty!!

So, there you go that's my cards for this months challenge.  I hope they have inspired you a little to get involved with the challenge this month.  The ONLY RULE we have here on the Get Funky Challenge blog is one that alot of our entrants seem to over look..please include at least one Funky Hand paper, digital stamp, stamp image whatever you have from Funky Hand, on your card to be in with a chance to win the prize of a Funky Hand Download collection of your choice. If you don't own any Funky Hand products yet don't worry, I always include a Funky Freebie paper on my website www.funkyhand.com each month especially so you can join in.

So, lets see what you create, we are really looking forward to visiting your blogs!
