Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop

Hello Everyone,

I am super excited to be joining the 7th Annual Deck the Halls with Inky Paws Blog Hop organised by Newton’s Nook Designs! For this very special event I created this cute Christmas card using one of my favourite holiday stamp sets.

I started with stamping and colouring the cute bear in the car from the Winston’s home for Christmas set with Copic markers and fussy cut it out.

To set the scene I die cut a stitched rouded rectangle with the Frames and Flags die set from blue cardstock and used white texture paste over the Petite Snow stencil.

While it was drying I cut a piece of light grey cardstock with the same die to be the road, and a white scalloped rectangle from the same die set to be in the background. I decided to add a silver metallic layer in between the two just because I love layered cards.

The sentiment I white heat embossed on silver metallic cardstock and die cut it with the rounded tag die from the Tag times two die set. I also die cut some pine from dark green cardstock and a red bow using the Pines and holly die set. I layered these on top of each other and assembled the scene.

I added a red and white striped patterned paper to a white top folding card base before adhering the scene in place. I used a clear shimmer pen on the bow and the presents, added glossy accents on some parts of the car and ribbons and my card was all done!

  1. Such a bright & cheerful card! Beautiful coloring & love the textured stenciled snowflake background set against the pretty blue.


  2. Your bear, driving his car filled with a Christmas tree and gifts, is too cute for words! Love this image! All the details you’ve added – from the snow, to the glossy bow, to the shimmery paper – everything! – add so much to the festive nature of the scene! Completely adore this!!
