I have two cards to share with you today using the super cute Arctic Snowfall set.  I used mostly the same supplies for both cards.

For my first card, I started out by blending on some Iced Tea Hybrid ink over the Plaid Stencil that was released last month onto some kraft card stock. I thought this would add a nice background.

I then added an alcohol inked panel that I did using some fall colors. Of course I also had to add just a bit of gold foiling to my alcohol inked background.

I then stamped the adorable little fox image onto some kraft card stock using the same Iced Tea Hybrid ink that I used on my background. A coordinating sentiment from the Arctic Snowfall set and this card is complete.




For my second card, I pulled out a couple more items from LDRS Creative. This time instead of stenciling my background, I added a fun piece of patterned paper onto my card panel from the Happy Fall paper collection that was released last month.

I then took the other half of my alcohol inked background and die cut it using the Scalloped Rectangle Die die collection. I also die cut 3 additional layers of this die from some kraft card stock so I could build up my frame.

I stamped the super cute owl image from the Arctic Snowfall set onto the inside portion of one of the frames along with its coordinating sentiment.


Here's a closeup of the dimension and the yummy gold foiling on the alcohol inked background. :)
