The big day is almost here so I thought I’d end this year with a non-traditional punny Christmas card design I sent to some of my closest friends this year. It’s a great one for using non-holiday themed stamps in a festive design. I used the Lawn Fawn Be Hap-pea stamp set, Lawn Fawn Say What? Christmas Critters stamp set and some stitched star dies (these or these would be good).

As usual, I started out by stamping the peas and their pod from the Lawn Fawn Be Hap-pea stamp set in some MFT Extreme Black Ink onto some blending cardstock. I also stamped out some of the small hats from the Lawn Fawn Yeti or Not set to dress up the peas. I used some bright greens and reds to colour in the images and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

On a top-folding A6 card base I blended on some Distress Oxide Ink in Broken China, focusing most of the ink in the centre of the card. On another panel, I blended on some Distress Inks in Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey and Squeezed Lemonade and die cut with a stitched star die. With a gold gel pen, I added some dot detail to the star and adhered it centrally to the card base.

Some foam tape helped pop the peas and their pod up onto the star. For the sentiment, I stamped out the ‘hap-pea’ sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Be Hap-pea stamp set and the ‘merry little christmas’ from the Lawn Fawn Say What? Christmas Critters stamp set in some Candied Apple Distress Oxide ink. I prefer to stamp bright colours in Oxide ink as they don’t stain the stamps like dye inks do in the brighter colours. I adhered the sentiments underneath the peas.

I made two different designs with the two different pod stamps from the Lawn Fawn Be Hap-pea stamp set. A few final touches with a white pen finish it off.

Thanks for reading and I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a wonderfully successful new year 2020!
