Whimsy Stamps | Special Guest Spot July | Christmas in July

For today’s card, I used the Rudolph stamp from the Sylvia Zet Collection. Here is what I came up with:

This little reindeer is so cute! It’s one of my favorite images from Whimsy Stamps. I colored the cutie with Copic markers and added shimmer to the ornaments with a Wink of Stella clear pen. I then cut it out with scissors. Next, I created a top-folded card base using beige cardstock, similar to kraft cardstock. I splattered some white ink onto the card front to make it look like falling snow. I fixed Rudolph with foam pads to the background for more dimension. To finish off my card, I stamped the best wishes in black onto white cardstock and cut a speech bubble around the text. The best wishes is from the Everyday Mini Sentiments set. I like to create clean and simple Christmas cards using non-traditional Christmas colors as I did here with the background. 

Here are the stamps I used:
