It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year


Hi there, I hope your weekend is getting off to a good start!

Today I’ve colored up another sweet image from Elizabeth Craft Designs and paired it with a sentiment from Concord and 9th, and an embossing folder from Alexandra Renke.  I wish you could see the snow texture in person.  It’s amazing!

I started by stamping one of the penguin images from Elizabeth Craft Designs’ Penguins stamp set in Copic-friendly Hero Arts Intense Black ink onto Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock.  I colored the penguin with C1, C3, C5. and C7, with a bit of Y17 for his beak and dots of black Sakura Glaze pen over his eyes.  For his hat I used V000, RV63, V06, and RV66, with a bit of C1 and C3 on the pom pom.  I used E21 and B32 for the bird, and E35 and E37 for the sled.  I used the coordinating die cuts to cut out the image and then set it aside.

The background is an A2-sized piece of Neenah Solar White which I put in an Alexandra Renke Snowfall embossing folder and ran through my Gemini Jr. The texture is so detailed and it’s amazing!

I used a My Favorite Things Snow Drifts die to cut a hillside out of Neenah Solar White.  Onto that I stamped a sentiment from the Concord and 9th Snow Flurry stamp set using Versafine Clair Nocturne ink.

To assemble the card I adhered the snow drift to the snowy background using foam tape.  Then I adhered the penguin, also using foam tame.  To finish, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.

Thanks so much for visiting!
