Hambo Hoedown #45

It's that time again...time for my Hambo Hoedown post! This week's challenge was to use this cute "Anty Claus" image (which you can find here) and to use an extra fold in your card. Well, I decided to add more than one!

I made my ant red because I grew up in FL where we had a TON of red ants.

And here are my extra folds. I took a piece of card stock and scored it many times. I folded it on the score lines and got a ripple/pleating effect. Then I tied some twine from the Twinery on top and added some awesome bling that Christina gave me on Saturday at our Christmas card making get-together. It is from Recollections and called bling on a roll.

All the cardstock is a mixture of SU and PTI. The image was colored with Copics. The button is from SU. So go on over to the Hoedown blog, here, and give this challenge a shot for yourself! It means earning a free Hambo digi image for yourself :) Who could resist??


  1. What an awesome smarty pants idea!!! Love the pleats and your out of the box thinking...So cute!

  2. Cuteness! I'm so glad you could use the red bling--it works perfectly with your red ant. The pleats are super fabulous, too!

  3. Cute! I love the pleats. Great idea!
