It’s the most Wonderful Time of the Year!


It's the most wonderful time of the yearJust recently I ordered the most adorable MFT Christmas stamp set Merry Christmoose. Isn’t that moose just cute? So I had to create a card the is perfect for the most wonderful time of the year.

I started with preparing the background. I cut out a piece of light blue cardstock that I got with one of my Simon Says Card Kits. I used the sentiment from MFT’s Trim the Tree set and stamped with Cornflower. Before I started with the snowflakes, I masked the sentiment with some post it tape. Now I used two of the snowflakes from Snowflake Flurry and stamped them using Versamark ink. I started with the biggest and stamped it in triangles. Now I used the medium sized snowflake and stamped it in between. The smallest snowflake is from “Cool Day”. Now I sprinkled Simon Says Stamp clear embossing powder over it and heat set it.

To create my scene, I stamped the smaller polar bear, the moose, two sheets of ice, and the pole. I colored all of them with Copic markers. This time I really concentrated on the shading for the ice and the polar bear. It’s not that easy to color something that is actually white 🙂

After I was done coloring, I cut all images out and put them in place. All images are adhered with foam tape. And as always I added some Wink of Stella, this time to the ice on the pole, hat, and scarf.

I’d also like to add this card to the Simon Says Christmas Challenge and the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge (Sketch 255).

I hope you enjoyed my card for the most wonderful time of the year 🙂
