Coloring stamps to create my own patterned paper is one of my favorite things to do! I used some Christmas stamps and dies from LDRS Creative to create this super cute Holiday scene!
I'm completely in love with this card! It looks like these reindeer and elves are in the middle of a wintery forest! I started by stamping the three pine trees from the Christmas Stable 4x6 Stamps all over an A2 card panel with Raven Hybrid Ink and coloring them with alcohol markers. Once my background was colored I spattered some gold shimmer watercolor to add some texture and shine.
I think you could leave the background without any focal images and use one of the AMAZING sentiment dies from LDRS Creative and it would be beautiful, but I wanted to add some additional imagery. I stamped a couple of reindeer and the elves from the Reindeer Games 4x6 Stamps and the stable from the Christmas Stable 4x6 Stamps and colored them with markers. I used their coordinating dies to cut them out. I love that the dies even cut out the background of the stable so I can see the forest peeking through!
I cut out the Christmas Wishes Word Dies from white and gold foil cardstock and added everything onto the front of my card with foam tape. That's it! Thanks so much for joining me!
