Unfortunately, due to the postal force not being with me or on my side, I didn’t get my stamp set in time to participate in the festivities on the day it was launched. So I’m making up for it now instead! I will also put this card in with my 12 Weekends Of Christmas Series as I’m scrambling to make up enough Christmas cards in time for the holidays! Even though technically it’s not the weekend.. unless we pretend it’s a really long weekend this week? Yep, I’m gonna go for it.
I stamped up the cute snowman with the kitty, as well as the dog, on Copic friendly paper and coloured them in. Once all done, I fussy cut them out and set aside while I worked on the background.
Armed with my Life Changing Blender Brushes and Distress Oxide inks in an array of colours, I blended a northern lights inspired night sky. On top of this I also splattered lots of gold for stars and then white paint for snow flakes.
As the scene was featuring snow falling, I thought it would look cute for the snowman and the dog to sit on top of a snowy hill. I cut one out of vellum and another one out of hammered white card stock. This was done with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Border die.
I layered these up and trimmed them down before adhering them to the background, which I had adhered to a card base. Then I glued down the snowman and the doggie too. As a last flourish I thought I’d add some snow around the bottom of them, but I had a little bit of a mishap with my 3D snow. It flowed out far too quickly and soaked my snowman!
After drying, it looks a bit better but if you look really close, you can see the 3D snow has ‘crawled’ up the snowman a little. Oh well, I will have to remember that for next time I use that stuff. Or go straight to Puff Powder from WOW! Embossing instead.
The sentient I chose from the stamp set is ‘you are my favourite reason for the winter season’. I heat embossed this on a piece of vellum, with Antique Gold embossing powder from Altenew. This is trimmed down and wrapped around the card at the top. With that the card was done!
