I am back with another set of Christmas cards featuring this super cute stamp set called Friends in the Forest by My Favorite Things. The set is actually no Christmas set but I think it works with the conifers in the background and a warm cap for all the critters. I chose traditional Christmas colours as red and green to make it even more christmassy (is that even a word?).
I started by stamping, colouring and fussy cutting the animals (there are coordinating dies available, too).
Then I die cut three squares using My Favorite Things Stitched Pinking Edge Square from white cardstock. I masked of the adges and created a sky by ink blending some light aqua ink onto the paper.
For the trees I chose a pigment ink because it is more opaque than a dye ink. I draw the stems with a brown coloured pencil.
I die cut more Stitched Pinking Edge Squares and cut snow slopes from them. That way I kept the pinking edge on my squares.
The sentiments I used are all from my go-to-set called Mini Messages by Mama Elephant.
For the finishing touch I decked the trees with sequins and pearls.
Thanks for stopping by and have a crafty weekend.
