Karen here today. Tis the season for me to finally get started on making some holiday cards. I usually make more than 100 and get started much sooner, but better later than never, right? Today’s batch uses the same basic card sketch. I used a few of Joset’s “critters” to create some fun cards.
I started by cutting that beautiful patterned paper at 3-3/4×5″ and a solid background for it at 4×5-1/4″. The ovals are cut using 90 lb Soft Finish Cardstock with the Stitched Ovals. The sentiment is from the Classic Christmas Sentiments Set. Once I got these pieces done, the rest was just pure fun.
I used 90 lb White Soft Finish Cardstock and black cardstock for the Penguin. The hat is from the Santa die (red is Copic R35), the nose and feet are colored with YR14. As usual, I used 101mm Double Sided Adhesive to make putting together the critter easier.
The Sheep is also wearing Santa’s hat. (Why not, right?) He is colored using Vintage Photo and Tea Dye Distress inks and a Copic R34 and W7.
Last and never least is Santa! I colored him with Copic W7, R27 and Y000 (for the skin). He’s so cute.
Well, Ho Ho Ho, that’s it for me today. Thank you for stopping by!
Craftily yours, Karen
