Red Panda Christmas Cards!

Hi Crafty Friends!! I'm back today to share a couple of cute Christmas Cards I made using the adorable Special Delivery Red Panda Valentine Digital Stamp from Kitty Bee Designs. Even though this cutie is technically a Valentine stamp he could definitely be used for any type of Happy Mail! He was so sweet, I decided to colour up two and make a pair of similar layered cards.

I started off layering some patterned papers over prefolded card bases and using some Simple Stories Christmas journaling cards as a background layer. I then added the red deer sticker and added some hand drawn stitching lines using a black Smash pen.

I used Prismacolor and Hobby Colour Markers to colour in the Red Panda image. Whenever I'm not quite sure of exactly what colours to use when colouring in an image I just 'google' what I'm looking for as a cartoon and I can usually get an idea of how to colour it.
I added an ornament sticker over top of my popped up image and used some foam tape to give the top of it a bit of dimension. I added little bows to the top of the ornaments, glued in place with tacky glue.

I used sequins to finish off my cards - one of my favourite tricks to embellish with these days - from the Holly Berries, Wedding Bells and Gold Confetti Sequin Mixes from the SpiegelMom Scraps Store. You can pick up your own awesome embellishments at the store using the code LISA15 to save 15%!

If you're in Canada, you'll definitely want to check out the SMS Sequins that are available at the Wild Whisper Shop! This beautiful plaid paper that I've used as a background is from their Holiday Style collection and it is gorgeous!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you are getting some crafty time to make some holiday cards. Be sure to check out the Kitty Bee Designs Etsy store for this and other super cute stamp designs, and have a wonderful week!
