Hi, everyone! I’ve got a tri-fold card to share with you today, featuring many of the adorable stamps from The Sweetest Little Town collection from Purple Onion Designs, illustrated by Stacey Yacula. I wanted to create a scene with a couple of the cute critters (Chestnut the bear and Tinsel the squirrel) decorating the tree (Sparkle) and a couple of others (Flannel the racoon and Timothy the hedgehog) meeting to exchange gifts. I stamped the church horizon with fadeout ink, colored in the entire panel with my Copics and used a craft knife to cut everything above the horizon line.
When you open the card, the sky’s still there, but below it are the snow crooners and the snowy fence from a previous collection, stamped again using no line ink. I like using no line ink for the background elements, it makes the focal images really stand out. Open this panel to the right, and there’s lots of room on the inside of the card to write a personal greeting.
I also stamped a sentiment from the new sentiment set between the hedgehog and the raccoon, using Blueberry Sky ink from Papertrey Ink.
In this photo, you can see that there’s another layer of the card behind this panel with the singing critters.
A lot of Copics used for this one, and even 3 out of the 4 different gray families.
