To the North Pole

This was created for the All That Scraps DT Challenge #26 to make an easily reproducible Christmas card. I made this in 25 minutes and for a 2-hour-a-card-kinda-girl, that was FAST!

Now, I didn't have a North pole stamp but I didn't let that stop me. I just simply got out my CC Designs Sugarplums Halloween set and made a North pole from one of the signs, the sign post, and a 1/2" circle punch. I hand wrote "North Pole", colored with copics, and added some icicles by "drawing" them in with Stickles. Here's a close up:

I dry embossed the center panel with my Snowflakes embossing folder. I ran my Virsamark pad over the top and covered with Winter Wonderland embossing powder from Mike's. This layer was finished with a shot from the heat gun. Assemble the layers and I'm done.

Stamps: CC_Designs Sugarplums Halloween
Paper: Real Red, Whisper White
Accessories: Copics, Snowflakes Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Virsamark Pad, Winter Wonderland embossing powder from Mike’s , ½ inch circle punch, White gel pen
