Christmas: Yetis on stamped backgrounds


I just love these yetis. Last year it was the Create A Smile santa that got used repeatedly; this year it’s these yetis. They are just too adorable.



First I created a background panel by stamping lots of small images from the beast friends set. Once I’d coloured them, I was very brave and cut it in half; I left one piece white and covered the other with a blue Distress ink gradient. These were used as the centre strips on two cards, with borders top and bottom. On the darker card, I experimented with using some discarded packaging to create a bit of texture for the snowy panel.

  1. I can see why you love them, the images are cute, but not overly so. Who could resist a yeti struggling with fairy lights? Really great cards!
