CAS Christmas November Reminder - Christmas Critters

Hello there.  This is the reminder post for the Christmas Critters challenge at CAS Christmas.  


I used another new stamp set called Penguin Pals from Sunny Studio Stamps for my card.


The penguins were stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on an Xpress It cardstock that was die cut out with the Wrapped Stitch Rectangle from Memory Box.  Stamped them again on masking paper and fussy cut out to create their masks.  Masked them and the snowy ground with a hand torn mask, then blended Tumbled Glass and Blueprint Sketch distress inks for the background.


Removed the masks and coloured the images and scene with Copic markers.  The sentiment from another new stamp set called Season’s Greetings by Evelin T Designs was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink and heat embossed with clear glitter embossing powder.  For some dimension, mounted the panel with two pieces of thick white cardstock onto a white card base.  Added falling snow with a white gel pen to finish.

The challenge ends on November 24 PST, so there is still time to play along and complete your Christmas cards!  For more inspiration, head on over to the challenge blog post HERE.  With this being the last post of the year at CAS Christmas, I want to wish you all a happy holiday season.  See you next year!
