Penny Black - Jingle Friends

Hi everyone.  Today I'm sharing my first card made with the Christmas Release from Penny Black - Season of Hope.

I started out with a fun image called Jingle Friends (30-739), which is die-cut cut with matching Jingle Friends cut out (51-687).

I stamped in black ink and heat embossed in clear.  Then used Distress Inks to watercolour Santa and Rudolph. :)  I added sparkle to Santa's "fur" trim and also Rudolph's scarf.  Crystal glaze gives Rudoph a shiny nose and also adds shine to his hoofs.

The pair are popped up on foam over top of a background of softly sponged blue ink with snow falling.  I added a torn piece of white card stock at the bottom.

To finish, I used a new sentiment set (Christmas Moments (30-731) stamped in black and clear embossed to match the image.

Close-up ..
I'll be back with lots more cards using this wonderful Christmas Release in the coming days.

Thanks for stopping by!
