52 Christmas Card Throwdown and a post for J and C Creations blog, which has this month's challenge as Animal Antics featuring Penny Black. This lovely Snow Family is a stamp from Penny Black, now I know they're not exactly animals but they are very cute and they do bring a smile to your face and there just might be a tiny animal under all that snow, honest!
They have been stamped in Archival Black ink and coloured with watercolour pens. I used a grey Promarker to add a little shading and if you look closely you might be able to see that the bobbles on their hats are fluffy, I found some flock in my stash that's been there for years because you only ever use a little at a time.
I cut around the family and across the lower background and then mounted it on foam pads to give a little dimension. The greeting is stamped in black and clear embossed, then it was cut out using the smallest die in the Mega Deckle Edge Label die set from Spellbinders.
A reasonable quick and easy card that looks clean and simple. I hope you like it.
