Christmas Cards Preview

Hey there, scrappers! For my monthly card swap this month, we were to create something using the new White Pines paper pack. I'm obsessed with this paper! It is my favorite Christmas/ Winter paper CTMH has ever had! We also have some really adorable stamp sets that match the feel of the paper perfectly.


I used three different stamp sets on the front of the card. The tree is from the White Pines Workshop on the Go. The sentiment is from Season's Greetings, which is actually a really cute penguin stamp set. And, the fox is from Miracle of Christmas, which features several woodland creatures. 


To create the fox, I first stamped the image using Black pigment ink, and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Embossing the image first helps keep the marker coloring from leaking too much, and it adds texture to the card.


For the inside of the card, I used the rest of the sentiment from the Season's Greetings stamp set. Both sentiments are included on a single stamp, but I broke the text up, but bending the text around a stamping block. 


Ingredients:
Happy Scrapping, My Artsy Friends!
