Paperie Ink-Christmas Caroling with the Hedgehogs

Happy Friday!! It is exactly one week before Christmas! My blog has been echoing with all the nonexistent posts. I am so disappointed in myself!! I have been busy with Christmas preparations and my crafting has gone by the wayside. I have a week off starting on Christmas eve and I am hoping to get A LOT of creating done so I can post a bit more.

It is my turn over at the Paperie Ink blog.  I am sharing a card I created with the versatile Christmas Carolers stamp and die set from Paperie Ink. This set is SO CUTE and I have had fun creating all kinds of cards with it. I decided to create a holiday theme for this card.

I created the little scene by first blending Stormy Sky, Chipped Sapphire and Blueprint Sketch Distress inks, then stamping and heat embossing the snowflakes. I then added the adorable hedgehogs that I had stamped, die cut and colored in with Copic markers and adhered over some die cut hills. I dressed them in some festive headpieces, using foam adhesive to give each a little dimension. 

The music stand is adhered with foam adhesive too, and positioned in front of the little critters. 
I then adhered the entire scene over a red A2 card base that I covered with a stamped die cut.  

The last step was to stamp the white banner with the sentiment in red. I adhered it using foam adhesive so that it straddled both the scene and the red card base. 

This card was so fun to make with these little guys. I also LOVE how the background with the Distress inks came out!! 

Thank you for stopping by. For more adorable cuteness, please visit the Paperie Ink blog.
