Hello and happy November! We are in the home stretch to the holiday season. I’ve been busy making lots of Christmas cards so I think I’ll be well stocked when it comes time to send them out in a few weeks.

The card I’m sharing today is a little more on the simple side (simple by my standards, lol). I created a small wintery scene with the sweet images from the Merry Carolers stamp set.

I started with a white A2 card base to which I added a plaid panel. This panel was created with one of Hello Bluebird’s popular background stamps called Cozy Plaid.  I then used one of the Nesting Oval dies to create a base for my little scene. The oval was die cut from some light pink card stock. I darkened the top half of the oval with a blending brush and some Saltwater Taffy Distress Ink. I then added a snowy hill to the bottom half of the oval.

Next I stamped out three of the cute characters and the light post from Merry Carolers. I used Copic markers to color them …the colors I used will be listed below. 

Once I had the images arranged how I wanted, I splattered the entire scene, including the images, with white paint to give it a very snowy look. I then stamped “let it snow” three times just to the right of the lamp post. I adhered the completed scene to the card front with some foam tape to pop it up a bit. Lastly I added some die cut snowflakes
