Happy Holidays Sled

  Winter is here and Christmas is just around the corner and that means there are lots of Christmas and winter decorations popping up on front lawns, porches and houses. 

Snowman Sled from the Woodland Winter release reminds me of some of the gorgeous decorations I see in my travels to and from work. My drive is very rural but some of the small towns I pass through have some gorgeous decorations. This stamp reminds me of some the "country" feel decorations I see and that is what inspired my card design. This re release is full of fun winter stamps and perfect for Christmas, winter and winter birthday cards! You can see the full release here 

After stamping this cutie with Tuxedo Black Memento ink, I coloured him with Copic markers and hand fussy cut him leaving a thin white edge. It is hard to see in the picture but there is clear Spectrum Sparkle pen added to the berry branches. 
I mixed some patterned paper from Echo Park and Whimsy Stamps to help create my country feel back ground. The plaid paper is cut out using a pleated lace rectangle die to add some interest to my card.  I edged all of the paper edges with walnut stain distress ink and glued them down on my A2 size card base. Next I stamped the sentiment, inked the edges and added it to matching card stock.
I added some cotton ribbon from my stash and some die cut berries, I think they match the stamp pretty well. I added the stamped image with foam pop dots  and finished off the card with enamel dots.
