I have been drawn towards traditional color schemes for my Holiday cards this year, but this is such a simple card design that you could switch up the color scheme or image and have a non traditional Holiday card! I am obsessed with the Mugs and Kisses Stamp Set! It's my favorite stamp from this release and probably from the whole year! I started the card by stamping the candy cane from the Mugs and Kisses Stamp Set repeatedly on a piece of white cardstock. I colored in the candy canes with red and white Copic Markers and then outlined each of them with a light blue/green marker to give them a cool shadowy glow.
I stamped the adorable little penguin and some whipped topping from the Mugs and Kisses Stamp Set and colored them then cut them out with the coordinating Mugs and Kisses Die Set. When I placed the penguin mug onto the candy cane background I realized that he was blending into the background too much, so I wanted something subtle behind the mug. I die cut three of the largest die from the Stacked Snowflakes Die Set and adhered the centers together. This added a subtle backer to the mug and some extra texture.
I kept with the red monochromatic color scheme and stamped a sentiment from the Mugs and Kisses Stamp Set with red ink and added it below my image. Thanks so much for joining me!
