TPS Christmas Easel card

I am so excited to be a part of The Paper Shelter design team as a guest designer until February. They have the most adorable stamps ever! 

My first assignment was to create a Christmas easel card for their latest challenge and this is what I made. The best thing about using digital stamps is that you can make them different sizes and flip them - I have done both on this card. I made some smaller versions of the carolling couple for my Scrapmatts bridge and flipped one so they weren't all with the man on the left. I coloured them all with copics and finished it off using a Flourish with a Bling Chloe pearl flourish and some pearls for snow.

FWAB used:
Chloe pearl flourish
Adhesive pearl pearls
Elise flowers
Grass from Trent's fence
For more products or to find a stockist please visit Flourish with a Bling. If your favourite craft store doesn't stock our products feel free to pass on our details.

The prize at The Paper Shelter is a gift voucher worth a whopping $30 if you play with a TPS image or designer papers and three digis of your choice if you play with a different brand.
