Miss Kate Cuttables Challenge-Holiday

It’s time for another challenge at Miss Kate’s Cuttables.  This month, the theme is Holiday!  Lucky for me Miss Kate’s store is chock full of holiday-themed cut files, digital and printables.  And now paper die cut and paper packs.  That’s right, you get the same Miss Kate’s images, but a physical paper product!   And don’t forget to get your Freebie of the Week right here.

My challenge project incorporates a number of Miss Kate’s products; Christmas Treats Digital Paper Collection, Gingerbread House, Gingerbread Couple, and Christmas Traditions

First, here’s the front of the card:

Sweet Season 2 wm 1

The gingerbread house matches the digital patterned paper perfectly.  To complete the front, I simply filled a 4″ x 5 1/4″ rectangle with the pattern in my Silhouette design screen and sponged the perimeter with green ink.  I sized the gingerbread house to fit the front and attached it on dimensionals.  To complete the look, I added a greeting on a color coordinated double mat, coated the “icing” with Glossy Accents and added Clear Jewel Bling from Eyelet Outlet (colored with Copic markers on the greeting).

But the inside is where all the action is:

Sweet Season 2 wm 3

I followed a video by Dawn’s Stamping Thoughts to make the Pop Up Panel inside this card.  In addition to the gingerbread house paper, I also used the striped paper included in the digital collection.  To get the alternating stripes, I filled two rectangles with the pattern and then created mirror images in my Silhouette design screen.  Then I added the gingerbread couple, peppermints and cookies.  I added Glossy Accents liberally.  A sentiment from Stampin’ Up’s retired My Digital Studio to finish.

It’s hard to believe I’ve been on Miss Kate’s design team for a year now.  Here’s a peek at my challenge project from last December.

So now it’s your turn to enter the challenge at Miss Kate’s Facebook Group.  The requirements for the challenge is to follow the theme of the month and use a Miss Kate Cuttable’s file in your creation, including any/all freebies you have.  The challenge will run from this evening through the 4th Monday of each month.  Winners will be announced, in the group, Friday of challenge end week.  Remember this month’s it’s holiday.  Good luck!

  1. This is such an adorable card. Making the twist and pop cards is fun and becomes easier the more you do.

      Yes, indeed. I can remember how difficult making new folds were years ago. I labored over a center step card and now I do that without even thinking. I’m evolving, lol!
