Have a lovely Christmas – LDRS Creative

Hello Everyone,

Iam on the LDRS Creative Blog today with a foxy Christmas card. I love to mix and match stamps and dies from my LDRS Creative stash to create a totally new look and use stamps for other occasions than what they were designed for.

These foxes from the Arctic Snowfall stamp set were begging me to colour them for a while now. I just could not resist any longer, i used my alcohol markers to add colour to them. Then i fussy cut them out with my scissors, and used a black marker on the edges to make any imperfection disappear.

To set the scene for my fox family, i die cut the rectangle from the Eyelet Lace Rectangle die set from a patterned paper (Arctic Snowfall paper pad) and also from white glitter paper. I used the stitched slope die from the Snowy Day border die set to cut the snowy slopes.

I cut another patterned paper from the same collection to cover an A2 sized card front and stamped the sentiment from the Love in blooms stamps set using Mrs Periwinkle Hybrid Ink. I love how well it coordinates with the patterned paper i used in the background!

The other half of the sentiment is a die cut Christmas: i cut it from dark grey cardstock and from glitter cardstock which i layered on top of the grey one a bit offset. I assembled the card and adhered the foxes in place using a thin 3D foam tape. I used a black glaze pen and a white gel pen on the noses and eyes as a finishing touch.

I will upload this card to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Anything Goes.

I hope you got inspired to stretch your stamps and make holiday cards with them. Until next time, happy crafting!
