Ut Oh! Coal for Christmas!

Pawsome Stamps | 2022 Holiday Release

AD:  DT Post

Hi there!  

Today I’m sharing this super cute Christmas card I made for the naughtier people in my life!  

This card is part of an Instagram hop I’m doing with Pawsome Stamps but I couldn’t resist sharing it here too.  Be sure to head over to Instagram and see what the other Designers are up to!

I have to say, I had so much fun making this card!  Everything just seemed to come together:  the train car hauling lumps of coal, the surprised expression on the little moose, and the perfect sentiment! 

Here’s a quick how-to:

1.	Stamp, color and die cut your images.  When coloring the moose, I left a circle of 
        white around his eyes and added some high eyebrows with my Copic Multiliner.  I 
        think this gives him a bit of an Ut Oh! expression which is perfect for this card.
2.	Die cut your sentiment (I used alphabet dies).  I die cut each letter 5 times out of
        black card stock and one time out of white cardstock.  I glued each layer together, 
        putting the white on top. This creates dimension, and, by using black for the base 
        layers, it gives it a bit of a shadow effect.
3.	Arrange your pieces on the front of your card and glue them in place with liquid 
4.	Add some black sequins to the load of coal to give it bit of shine and dimension. 
        Then add a few stray black sequins around your sentiment.
5.	Add a piece of black/white striped washi tape to the bottom of the panel and then 
        pop the whole thing up with foam adhesive on your card base.

How about you?  Do you have anyone in your life that might getting coal for Christmas?

I hope you enjoy this card as much as I enjoyed making it! For even more inspiration, visit us on Instagram: @pawsomestamps  @jean.studiojd

I love to make cards and enjoy trying out new techniques and products. My artistic “style” differs almost daily – it just depends on what I’m making, the look I’m going for, who the intended recipient is, and, well, sometimes just the mood I’m in.
