I started by creating a background of square using scraps of the green and striped paper that I have left over from various other creations.
Gluing all those small squares (1.25" x 1.25") down was a painstaking process, one which I am not eager to repeat. I then stamped out three of the Stampotique characters and coloured them up with my Prismacolors. I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink and distressed the edges with my blade - Paper Distresser, which grants me +34 shabby attack points. The sentiment was stamped from the "Christmas Words" Dylusions set. I used a scrap of red paper to create another square for the sentiment.
The inside sentiment was stamped from the My Pink Stamper "Biggie Christmas Sentiments" set. I used "Jessie's ABCs" from Lawn Fawn to add "the Thompsons".
I then made a wintery looking envelope to go along with this gigantic card (it measures 8.5" x 5.5" when closed).
I will be entering this creepy-cute Christmas creation into the following challenges:
Stampotique Designers Challenge #67: Squares
Stamping for Pleasure Challenge: Rudolph Day
Pause Dream Enjoy Challenge #39: Faces
Try it on Tuesday September Challenge 2: Lots of Layers
Use it Tuesday Challenge #40: Use Your Scraps! (all the squares were made from scrap pieces of paper that were too small for much else...don't ask me why I had saved them in the first place..oh...because I'm a paper hoarder...that's right.)
