Happy Ho-Ho-Holidays From the Both of Us

Hi Crafty Friends,
I made a Christmas card in APRIL! I wish it was Christmas because then this whole COVID thing would be over! I had so much fun making the FUN sky for this one. I used Distress Oxide Inks for the background and splattered with copic opaque paint, water, and Perfect Pearls. I finished it by using embossing paste on the Hero Arts Snowflake Stencil.

  1. Such a fun stenciled snowflake background sky for your die cut Santa and Mrs Claus Christmas scene. TFS and joining us at STAMPlorations Stencil. Hugs...Nancy

  2. I'm always happy to see Mr and Mrs Claus (waving hello to them) and that background is so fun!! I make Christmas cards all through the year because I'm so busy around the holidays that it feels good to have at least one thing off my list. My favorite part of Christmas is driving around the neighborhood and seeing the lights and decorations

    My favorite tradition is decorating the tree.
