Hi everyone, and welcome to day three of the 2016 Visions of Sugarplums Holiday Hop! I am so excited to be joining along with this year’s festivities! You should have arrived from Lisa Bzibziak‘s blog, but if you’ve just popped in, you can find the start of the hop at Choux Choux Paper Art.
For my project today, I have made a matching card and tag set featuring some of my favorite winter wonderland creatures from Papertrey Ink. I don’t know about you, but I am just crazy about cute critter images and stamps…. and then throw in some fun little outfits, and I seriously can’t resist. Cutest things ever!
I pulled out some of my favorite dies to create both a rectangular and circular frame for the card and tag base, and then filled them with winter scenes. I cut gentle slopes from white cardstock for snowy banks, and tucked mountains and trees into the back drop. And for something different, I used patterned paper, instead of cardstock, for the base of each.
All the images were stamped onto watercolor paper, die cut with the matching dies, and then colored using Distress Inks. Lots of icy Stickles glitter glue was then added for some holiday sparkle and shine.
I’ve had so much fun playing along with the holiday hop, and now it’s your turn!
