Winter Wonderland in August | Pretty Pink Posh

Pretty Pink Posh Winter Wonderland by Thi LamHello, crafty friends! I hope you’re having a wonderful summer day today! It’s August and 90 degrees in California! Maybe it’s the heat that compelled me to make a Christmas card in the summer, but that’s what I did and I love it! Let’s begin the process on this cute card I made featuring Pretty Pink Posh stamps and dies.

First, I stamped Winter Wonderland critters onto white card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored everything with Copic colors and die cut with coordinating dies.

Next, I die cut the Merry Christmas script die 3 times on white card stock. I stacked them and glued them together for dimension. If you’ve read a few of my other posts, you will know that I love me some dimensions…especially when it comes to word dies.

Then, I ink blended a wintery background with Distress Ink in Blueprint Sketch, Salty Ocean and Tumbled Glass. After that, I sprayed some water and lifted some of the ink so I have those cool spots that Distress Ink makes when it reacts with water. Then, I flicked on some Gansai metallic white ink (because it was already on my desk. If I was to do this again, I would have chosen an opaque white paint) to look like a flurry.

After my background dried, I put the card together! I glued the sentiment die with Ranger media matte to the top of the card. The critters were arranged on the bottom. I left the bottom of my background white to look like snow and popped up all my critters with foam tape for…yup, dimension.

The card was finished off with some sparkling clear snowflakes and I am feeling 10 degrees cooler now! I hope you like my card and thank you so much for stopping by!
