Have a Cracking Good Holiday Season

Hi there,

it's Tanja here again and I created this sweet Christmas Card using the Gerda Steiner Designs The Nutcracker stamp set:

  • stamp the nutcracker, a mouse and the walnuts from the Gerda Steiner Designs The Nutcracker set with Lawn Fawn Jet Black
  • color the images with Spectrum Noir Triblend Markers, add extra-shading with Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils and highlights with a white gel pen
  • create a background on a piece of kraft cardstock by applying Distress Ink (Candied Apple, Pine Needles, Gathered Twigs) through the Festive Tim Holtz Layering stencil 
  • stamp the sentiment from the same stamp set with Versafine Clair Pinecone
  • add strips of kraft cardstock and of patterned paper to the left and right side of the panel before adhering it to a cardbase


I hope you got inspired.

Hugs,
