Be Jolly

Hello friends and welcome back!  I have a quick post with my final Christmas card for 2020 and joining the current Inkspirational Challenge where the theme is snow.  This is my second entry to this challenge; you can find my first one here

For my card I used one of the latest stamps from Purple Onion Design by Stacey Yacula.

I adore these cute critters and their friend Frosty!  The scene was colored with Copic markers, then splattered with white gouache with both a paint brush and an old tooth brush to achieve the snowy effect.  After it dried, the panel was die cut with a square die and matted to a slightly larger blue square.  

For some subtle texture behind the main image a panel of white was embossed using a snow embossing folder, then adhered directly to the card base.  The main image was then added with foam tape, as were the two sentiments.  The card still needed a little something more so I added a few snowflake embellishments.

Thanks so much for visiting, I really appreciate it!  I hope you are continuing to stay safe and healthy, and have a wonderful Christmas!
