Alpaca Holiday Framed Snowy Scene Christmas Card with Juliana

Hello friends! It's Juliana Michaels and I'm excited to share a sweet little Christmas card I created using the Alpaca Holiday stamp set! These adorable little alpacas just bring a smile to my face and I'm pretty sure this Christmas card will do the same for it's recipient.

I began by stamping and coloring the images from the Alpaca Holiday stamp set with Copic markers. I then die cut them using the coordinating die set. Once the coloring and cutting was complete, I set these to the side to start working on the snowy scene I wanted to create.

To create the framed scene, I took the smaller of the rectangle dies from the Fancy Frames Rectangles die set and cut if from white cardstock. I then cut a rectangle from Bristol Paper that was sized to layer behind the frame. I inked this up with Distress Oxide in Blueprint Sketch and Salty Ocean. To make it look like snow, I lightly sprinkled water onto the paper and dabbed it dry. I still wanted a more snowy look, so I grabbed the the Frosty Flurries stamp. I wipe the inked paper with an embossing powder tool and then stamped the image with Versamark embossing ink (the embossing powder tool will prevent any extra embossing powder from sticking to the paper in areas where you might not want it). I then heat set it with white embossing powder. Now, I had the snowy background I was looking for!

Next, I cut a thin strip of white cardstock and adhered that to the bottom edge of the snowy background. I then layered on the stamped and colored images to create the scene. For the sentiment, I stamped it onto a piece of white cardstock that I die cut using the pennant die from the Fancy Frames Rectangles die set. To complete the card, I adhered the framed snowy scene to a piece of patterned paper from the Holiday Cheer 6x6 paper pad.

I hope this card inspires you to pull out the Alpaca Holiday stamp set and start creating some Christmas cards with it! We can't wait to see what you create and share with us!

  3. Santa and the alpaca together make such an adorable card! I really like the way you made the sky. I just got the Frosty Flurries die but haven't used it yet. I'm so glad you made this card so I can refer to your directions on the sky! Thanks!
