Polar Party

This is a very 'non-traditional color' Christmas card. I used Melon Mambo and Pacific Point along with Very Vanilla. I also had a difficult time photographing this one! Please forgive the photos, and hopefully you can get the idea of how this card looks in real life :). The trees and the penguins with their stacks of gifts were stamped on watercolor paper with StazOn Jet Black ink. You will want to use a permanent ink instead of a dye based ink for water coloring. I used my Watercolor Wonder Crayons and a blender pen to color my images. There is actually a lot of sparkle on this card. I used Dazzling Details to highlight the snow and the Christmas Trees and the snowflakes are die cut from white glitter paper. I love these little penguins- they are just soooooo cute!!!!!
For the inside of this card, I layered two snowflakes and both are die cut from more glitter paper. I used a scrap that I had leftover from my card front to 'hang' the snowflake from :). The Northern Frost snowflakes are so pretty and detailed and they layer together beautifully! 

It's getting colder where I live- brrrr! Dropping down into the low 30's at night. The leaves are almost completely off the trees now too. Time for the land to rest until Spring :). I hope you all have a wonderful autumn weekend!
