A Little Haul of Cheer

Happy Wednesday, all! Yes, it's another holiday card, but I am proud to say that this card has been sent to a dear friend in Taiwan. =)


I used the lovely A Little Haul of Cheer illustrated by Rachelle Anne Miller for this card. Such a cute image! This card was posted at the PWCO blog earlier this week, you can see it here.


I feel bad that I gave her bare legs, it looks so cold. =) And did you notice that I didn't use any patterned paper on this card? I know! It's so hard to not use any, but I decided to give my background stamps some loving. After coloring and cutting the image, I masked it with the help of this wonderful stamping mask paper.


The piece is then inked with tumbled glass then I stamped the Stunning Snowflakes from Hero Arts over the masked image using the same ink. The card base is stamped with Magical Background and the kraft scalloped border is stamped with Starring Sky. The seam binding is dyed with barn door and the sentiment came with the stamp.

That's all for today. Have a happy day! =)
