All I want for Christmas ...


DT Annalisa here. It's December so I am in full swing Christmas card mode! Today's card features the new Skating By Penguins Clear Stamp Set and the Carolling Critters Clear Stamp Set as well as the Winter Wonderland sentiment cards in black. It doesn't get much better than cute critters having a snowball fight.

For the background, I used the Stripes Cover Plate Die on some red and white card stock which cut I paper pieced together to form a flat background. I placed these on my base of white card stock that I cut with the largest die in the Slimline Scalloped Trio Circle Nesting Dies. I then die cut some snow hills from a Lawn Fawn die in my stash and adhered it down to complete the base.

Once the background was ready I stamped and coloured all of my critters and other elements. The line of lights is from the "Season's Tweetings" stamp set which I grabbed from Simon Says Stamp during "Stamptember" and is no longer available but you could certainly create this card without it.

I cut out all the elements and adhered them to the card, some with glue, others with foam tape. I added some lines with my white gel pen and added some Stickles for some shine. I finished the card with the "all I want for Christmas is SNOW" sentiment from the Sentiment Cards - Winter Wonderland | Black. These sentiment sets are awesome for cardmaking. I always struggle with white embossed sentiments but love the look of them on cards so these strips make it so easy!

Let the record show that I do not want SNOW for Christmas. I remember one of my favourite Christmas memories was when I hand washed my car on Christmas day! Haven't able to do that in a LONG time (since I live in Canada!) but would welcome it again.
