Happy Holidays {Purple Onion Designs}

I have another card today featuring the new Twas The Night Before Christmas
collection illustrated by Stacey Yacula for Purple Onion Designs.

I stamped the new Red (lumberjack beaver)image onto Copics X-Press It and then fussy cut out. I prepared the background for this cute little guy by stamping a portion of the Birch Tree Background onto kraft card stock using baked brown sugar ink. I also stamped the stump portion of the Red image underneath the birch trees and then added some white shading to all with a white Prismacolor pencil. I cut out an oval from white card stock placing the stamped birch image behind the cutout and then stamped the sentiment from the new Essential Happy Sentiment Set using schoolhouse red ink. After adding a strip of patterned paper at the bottom I cut out with a stitched die and attached to a white card base using a layer of craft foam. I attached the beaver image with foam tape and wrapped and tied cording at the top for a masculine Christmas card.
