Aren’t these critters from Arctic Animals adorable! Now although they come with their own matching die set, once I’d stamped them in Memento Tuxedo Black and Copic coloured them I then fussy cut them out rather than using the dies. Reason being, is that I could cut out the cracker, hat, antlers etc and layer and overlap elements without the white edge. I do love my dies, but every once in a while it’s therapeutic to pull out the scissors and these cuties were simple to cut out – nice, easy lines to follow :D

Once I’d got my three guys ready I added Lawn Fawn patterned paper to a top folding card base and wrapped it with twine. Then cut a snowy hill for the three to sit on with a Wavy Scallop Stitches die from White card and stamped the sentiment in Black.
