Keeping it white in the North Pole!

This card is ridiculously easy!  Trust me folks!  All you need is white, more white, with white!   I loved the elf licking the pole stamp from the add-on stamp set "Santa's Workshop." It is a must have if your grabbing the entire "Christmas Behind the Scenes" kit from Octobers Creative Cafe KOTM.  
I have seen lots of the designers using the entire stamp, which is super cute, but I wanted to do something a little different with mine.  I used just the pole and created a winter wonderland.

Start with a standard A2 base in Black.  Cut a slightly smaller piece of white without attaching, stamp just the pole to the white piece.  Be very very careful not to get any of the elf on there!  Now stamp the pole again on a different piece of white paper and color it to your liking.  Fussy cut this out and back it with foam and set aside.  Stamp several stars, cut them out and back them with foam for dimension, set aside.  I cut a second piece of white the same width as the white for the front of the card and hand cut waves to resemble snow.  Then, I pressed these pieces into a Versa-mark embossing pad, sprinkled them with clear glitter and heat set the powder.  I backed both pieces with foam.  I added the large snow mound, the colored pole and then the second snow mound.  Then I added my stars.  

See, super simple.  Now create 50 of them for Christmas!  If you don't like repetition, keep checking back this month as our design team is creating some seriously fun cards.  Be sure to check out our Instagram page too!
