Warm and Cozy Christmas Hugs

 

HAlpaca1

 

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 πŸ™‚

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.
