Minimalistic .. try saying that five times fast

Howdy :)  Today I have for you minimalistic projects.  Wow that is a hard word ........

For this challenge over at Creative Craft Challenges we are being sponsored by Dragons Lair (Stamping Dragon Designs) and Crafty Ribbons.

It is so nice to create a minimalistic card, especially for Christmas or an occasion where you are going to be making a lot of cards in one go.  My little snowman card that you see below was so quick to make and I think it looks quite effective.  I have used a Stamping Dragon Design Digi called Snowman (you can find him here)

 I just used a white base card and some strips of Christmas scrapbooking paper from Kaiser.  Then to colour the snowmen I used colours that matched the paper :- Copics R35, Y11 and B12 and then just C00 for the snowman body.  A little bit of clear spica pen in the white areas of the scarf some black spica for the eyes to make them sparkle.

For the snow under the snowman I used some glitter glue ....

I also completed another card using some Digi Word Art from Papermakeup.  They have amazing digi sentiments and phrases as well as other fantastic digi stamps.  I used a Dustin Pike image on the front of the card and then popped the Papermakeup image on the inside.  I really wanted to put it on the outside but it wouldn't fit ... and I didn't have anymore red cardstock left to make a bigger card .....sigh.  But in the end it looks really nice inside the card.  It's only a small card 4 inches x 4 inches ... so the inside gives it extra wow!

So head on over to Creative Craft Challenges and be inspired by the gorgeous DT projects and then create your own card and share it with us.  You never know ... you could be the winner of a lovely prize.
