An Eskimo Kiss-Mas

Today the Lady Commander of Copics and I donned our heavy winter armor and cloaks and made the journey far north to the village of Twinkleton. The land here is perpetually covered in snow and in the winter, shrouded in darkness and impassable without a sled or snowshoes. It was a difficult journey, but we were invited as honoured guests to their Eskimo Kiss Festival, having assisted them with many crafty quests in the past.  

This card was created for the reminder about the Just Some Lines December challenge happening now. Our theme this month is Christmas or winter. Come play along with us using a Just Some Lines image for your chance to win!


I started this card by colouring the Just Some Lines “Eskimo Kiss” image using Prismacolor pencils. 
On the furry parts of their parkas and boots I used some a lot of glitter for a bonus +927 sparkle exp points which allowed me to level up! My sparkle magic attacks will be extra strong now! The pink panel was embossed with a snowflake folder and my Cuttlebug. The snowflake border separating the two papers was cut using the Artbooking cartridge, as was the sentiment shape. I stamped the sentiment using the Lawn Fawn “Cozy Christmas” and “Harold’s ABCs” sets.

On the inside I stamped the sentiment using the My Pink Stamper “Biggie Christmas Sentiments” set then added some snowflakes on the bottom with a cheap-o Recollections brand set.

I used that same set on the envelope, stamping the snowflakes using Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.


These ‘lil eskimos will cozy up in the following challenges:

The Eskimo Kiss Festival was great fun, the entire village decorated in twinkling lights with music, games and food whilst above, the mystical aurora borealis danced overhead. Angela and I decided to spend the night in Twinkleton before making the difficult journey back to the Guild Hall on the morrow.
