52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown – Theme Challenge – Nutcracker(s) or Toy Soldier(s)

CCT - Design For Badge

I love this challenge because I challenged myself to make a Christmas Card designed specifically for a boy. I used Tim Holtz’s Christmas Stamps. Their were 4 stamps in this group: tree, snowman, toy soldier, and snowflake. Note: You can also buy them as individual stamps. I stamped and coloured the soldier 4 times. I used the dull image for the base and inked the areas around the soldier with various brown distress inked. The actual soldier, I coloured with Copics. I then fussy cut his head, hat, gloves, boots, and crossed embellishments and layered them on the base using foam dimensionals. I also distressed the card stock around the toy soldier image and added amber gems and natural twine.

  1. I think this toy soldier is fabulous. Love the distressed edges on the panel and the lovely layers giving so much depth. Fantastic work. xxx
