Salutations, crafty traveller. Thank you for stopping by the Guild Hall this fine day. The Lady Commander of Copics and I have just returned from a quick trip up to the northern region of Cotton Candy Fields. This time of year, the pink fields are covered in a soft blanket of sparkling snow and the snowfolk have already started to appear. Braving the bitterly cold winds, we collected some samples of the pink tinged snow to take back to the Guild Hall and use in some new ice elemental spells we were developing.
This is the third card in my Lawn Fawn postcard Christmas card set. You can espy the first two here and here. As with the previous two I started by stamping the postcard using the Lawn Fawn “You’ve Got Mail” set. The snowmen and their clothing, from the Lawn Fawn “Making Frosty Friends” set, was stamped onto watercolor paper and watercolored with Distress Markers and my Hydra Brush of +70 wetness, keeping the colours similar to the postage stamp sticker. I then die cut the snowmen and their accessories out before adhering them together. The sentiment, which fits perfectly on the lines of the postcard, was stamped using the Lawn Fawn “Winter Fox” set. I added a postmark using the Kaisercraft "Twig & Berry Postmarks" set. Some sparkly twine and a blingy snowflake finished the front off.
On the inside I stamped the sentiment using The Greeting Farm’s “Sparkling Season” set, keeping with the snowy theme and earning +402 chilly XP points.
The outside was stamped with the postage line things (I'm really not sure what they're called) from the Lawn Fawn “You’ve Got Mail” set and again with the “Twig & Berry Postmarks” set.
This card will keep it cool in the following challenges:
Our short jaunt to the frigid snow covered Cotton Candy Fields in the north also served as a bitter reminder that winter was indeed coming. As such, the Lady Commander and I put aside our spell creation project and spent the remainder of the day preparing the Guild Hall grounds for the harsh winter ahead.
