Hi there! It’s Caly with you today sharing a project for the Holiday Critters Challenge! This is an extra long challenge and runs 3 weeks, so you’ll have lots of time to play and enter. The challenge ends on December 5th at 11:59pm PT. Be sure to link up your projects on the “current challenge” post located at the top of the page.
My card today uses images from a few winter stamp sets. I used primarily the Yeti or Not set. I love these adorable yeti and use it every chance I get. I also used a house from the Winter Village set, the tree line from the Simply Celebrate Winter set, and snowmen from the Ready Set Snow set.
I stamped and colored all of the images with Copic markers. When done, I die-cut them and set them aside to work on the background. I ink-blended a panel with Distress Oxide Inks in Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry, then lined it with three layers of Stitched Hillside Borders.
Reds: R21, R22, R27
Oranges: YR30, YR61, YR66, YR68, Y17
Greens: G21, G24, G28
Teals: BG10, BG11, BG13
Blues: B00, B0000, BG000, BG02, BG07
Browns: E31, E35
Yeti: W00, W1, W3, R30
I colored the top of the hillside borders with the BG10 marker to give it a splash of color and contrast between the layers. I adhered the first two layers right over my ink-blended panel. The very top layer is attached with foam adhesive to give it more dimension.
I finished by stamping my sentiment at the top of the card panel, attaching my images to create a fun scene. Lastly, I added some white gel highlights throughout to give these images more interest.
I hope you like it! There will be lots of inspiration throughout the next 2.5 weeks, so be sure to check back here on the blog or the #lawnfawnatics hashtag on Instagram. Again, this challenge ends on December 5th at 11:59pm PT.
