Hello crafty friends!
Last week I posted this sweet alpaca holiday card on my Instagram page and today I am sharing how it was created 🙂
This was actually pretty simple card to create – coloring of the images took the longest and that is what I started with. After coloring the images I fussy cut them all and started working on my background.
I used peacock feathers distress ink for the sky and once it was dry I white heat embossed the falling snow.
Then I was off to die cutting the background and the snow drifts.
I used basic stitched rectangle die to cut the background panel and snow drifts dies for the hills.
I stamped the sentiment (from the stamp set) on the lower part of the snow hills and started assembling the card.
Background panel was backed with craft foam for dimension. I added foam tape to both snow drifts and most of the images.
I adhered the background panel to A2 size card base first then added the mountains with liquid glue. Next I adhered the snow drift that sits in the back of the scene.
I added foam tape to the second snow drift and adhered it to the bottom of the panel.
Once I had the snow drifts adhered I adhered my images.
To give this sweet winter scene little bling and more interest I added Nuvo Glitter drops to the tops of the mountains and some accents with white gel pen.
I hope you like this card and got inspired 🙂
