North Pole Greetings!!


It’s Wednesday, and this week, I made a Christmas card using High Hopes Rubber Stamps North Pole Penguin – TDG008 for the main image and Seasons Greetings – F300A, for the sentiment. Christmas is getting nearer and this little penguin is helping Santa deliver some of your presents this year!

To make my card this week, I began with a card base from Crate Paper – Boxed Cards – Mittens & Mistletoe (5.5″ x 4.25″). Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Rustic Wilderness and a finger dauber were used to ink around all of the edges. With my Cuttlebug and dies from My Favourite Things – Die-namics – Elegant Rectangle Stax, I die cut a large rectangle out of Forever In Time – Texture Rouge paper and a smaller one out of Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card cardstock. U-Line double-sided tape was added to the large rectangle and it was popped up onto the base card.

The image was stamped onto the smaller rectangle using my MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. I coloured in the image and then with a paint brush and a small mixture of DecoArt Glamour Dust, FolkArt – Extreme Glitter Acrylic Paint and Delta Ceramcoat – White, I added in the first layer of snow. A little more DecoArt Glamour Dust was added to it while it was still wet. This dried pretty quickly and Cosmic Shimmer Fluffy Stuff and more glitter were added to give the snow some texture. I also added this to the hat, pompom and sign. Lastly, I added some Crystal – Stickles because you can never have enough glitter. LOL! Wink of Stella – Clear was added to the bows, side of the ball on the pole and down the entire pole. Pental Sunburst Metalic Med Gel Pen – Gold and Wink of Stella – Clear were added to the pink present dots. Once everything was dry, I stamped the sentiment using my MISTI and VersaMark ink. Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail was applied over top of the ink and then heat embossed with Marvy Uchida – Embossing Heat Tool. The snow in the sky was created using a Gelly Roll Sakura #10 Pen. I applied U-Line double-sided tape to the back of the image and popped it up on top of the larger rectangle. To complete my card, I added in 4 YNS – Holly Jolly Sparkly Gumdrops in the corners.
