We Create December Blog Hop Tis The Season

Can you believe it is December already? I can't believe how fast the year has gone by. Today I am hopping with the We Create December Blog Hop as we celebrate "Tis The Season". There is still time to create your own holiday projects to share with family and friends. Our Design Team members will be sharing their projects and ideas to help inspire you and spark your creativity.
For my card design today, I decided to create a fun Christmas card with the retiring Yeti To Party stamp set. I just love this cute little monster and all the wonderful accessories in this stamp set. I am also excited that the coordinating Yeti Dies are back and on the Clearance Rack at a great savings. For this card design, I chose non-traditional Christmas colors to add to the whimsy of the design.

This cute card design has wonderful layers and textures to help create the feel of a Winter Wonderland. My sweet Yeti friend was stamped with Orchid Oasis Classic ink onto Basic White cardstock and I die cut it out with the Yeti Dies, including the slit at the top of the arm to slide in the present. I colored the Yeti's face and horns as well as the outline with the Light Fresh Freesia Stampin' Blends Marker to add some color. The background layer has been embossed with the Whimsical Woodlands 3D Embossing Folder to add texture and I colored the trees with the Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Brush for a touch of shimmer. To create the snow under the Yeti's feet, I die cut the mountains from Basic White cardstock using the Majestic Mountains Dies and gently colored the bottom edge with Fresh Freesia Classic ink with a Sponge Dauber. I adhered the mountain layer upside down so that the flat edge faces to create the ground. I trimmed the excess edges using Paper Snips. For the tree, I die cut one of the detailed trees using the Majestic Mountains Dies from Shaded Spruce cardstock and attached it to the left side of the card. The sentiment tag was die cut with the Tailor Made Tags Dies from Fresh Freesia cardstock and I stamped the sentiment with Orchid Oasis Classic ink. I added one of the circle reinforcements around the hole and tied a bow with the White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon. The presents have been stamped and die cut using scraps of the designer series paper and I added one to the outstretched hand of the Yeti and one under the arm. I attached the Yeti with Stampin' Dimensionals to the right side of the card front. The remaining presents have been added under the tree, with the smallest present added using a Stampin' Dimensional. The tree has been decorated with Iridescent Rhinestone Basic Jewels for a touch of sparkle. I love the feel of this card design and the idea of the Yeti decorating a tree in the forest and leaving presents for his friends for Christmas.

  1. Cute! I like the colors and the subtle trees behind the scene on the embossing folder! :)

    1. Thank you Tanya. I love how these products work together. I haven't used this embossing folder much so I am trying to make the most of it before it retires.

  2. How can you not smile when you get a Christmas Yeti in the mail. reminds me of the Rudolph the red nose reindeer movie. Good old Cornelius training the Yeti to decorate the tree. Fun colors and perfect for the Season

    1. Thank you Cheryl. That is what I love about the Yeti. It reminds me of my childhood and that wonderful movie.
