When I was going through my Mulberry Wood stamps from Crafter's Companion, I came across some adorable Christmas sets and realized that I'd better get a move on making some holiday cards! It's closer than we think it is! I wanted to do something a bit different, so I decided to stamp the image in white pigment ink (I used Close to my Heart White Daisy, but any will do) and color it in with my Prismacolor pencils.
I also used Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil on the card base in the same ink, and to make a simple layer behind my image. I used the same Kraft paper from Michael's for everything so that there was a sense of unity. I finished the card with a faux stitched border using a Bo Bunny Stitches stamp. I decided that I didn't want to add a sentiment to the front, and just kept it as it was. I DID add little black dots to the eyes to make them pop a bit. The white just didn't stand out enough.
I'm entering this in the following challenges:
SSS Monday Challenge: It's a Stitch Up!
SSS Wednesday Challenge: It's Hip to be Square
