All aboard the Cheer Mobile!

Morning all!

Today I'm sharing a festive project featuring a few favourites from The Greetery's 2023 Holiday release.

Oh, there is nothing quite as fun as festive crafting - my favourite creative season!

One of my absolute favourite images on a card is a little red car with a tree on the top. Not that I've ever transported a tree like this or seen many folks in the UK strap their tree to the roof! But it is an image that is quintessentially Christmas to me.

I started out by creating a background on cream cardstock with the Fair Isle stencil set with pink and aqua shades, and ageing it up with some Old Paper Distress ink.

Just love this stencil set as there are so many options for adding different tones of colour to the pattern and you can be as bold or as subtle as you like.

Then I stamped the car and tree from the Cheer Mobile set and, once assembled, I added some white paint splatter for a real wintry touch.

I grabbed the Crimped Circle Tag dies and cut the large one from cream cardstock. I masked off the "ground" and then created a snowy background by ink blending and using a snowflake stencil. While the ground was still masked, I added some more white paint splatter for good measure. You can never have enough!

Once the background was dry, I added the car, the stamped sentiment from the Cheer Mobile set, and some white puffy paint below the wheels.

The Loopy Bow Builder dies provided the perfect festive finishing touch. The next time I create a card along these lines, I may add some twine to the tag as it almost looks like a bauble hanging from a branch.

Until next time, happy crafting!
