Cozy and Warm Winter Wishes

Hello there.  Dropping in today to share a clean and simple (CAS) Christmas card inspired by several challenges.


I took the opportunity to use new Cocoa Party stamp set from Hello Bluebird for my card.  Stamped the fox with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on X-Press It cardstock and coloured with Copic markers and Polychromos pencils in autumn colours for a cozy feel.  Who says you can’t use autumn colours for Christmas cards? ­čśë


Masked him, then added red, orange and yellow dye inks that remained on the blender brushes to the background.  Flicked some water and blot off with a paper towel to give texture.  The sentiment was heat embossed on black cardstock with white embossing powder.  The top line is from Jane’s Doodles Winter Words and the bottom from My Favorite Things Bitty Holiday Wishes.  Assembled onto a white card base to finish.


Thank you for stopping by.  Enjoy your weekend.
