Just got back from vacation, and it’s time to get back into the swing of things here with a sneak peek of an adorable collection coming next week to Crafter’s Companion US called “Nordic Christmas”. For Christmas crafting in a Scandinavian style, this fabulously festive Nordic Christmas papercrafting collection offers everything from snowy village scenes to images of Santa and friends to coordinating digital papers and embellishments. The collection comes in the forms of stamp sets, embossing folders, and a papercrafting CD, and is bound to inspire lots of creative seasonal makes! The papercrafting CD contains much more than just standard Christmas cardmaking; you’ll be able to create lots of festive projects, including fun table decorations and trinket boxes.
Now, for my sneaky peek:
I created this cute gift box using the Crafter’s Companion Ultimate Tool, and I embellished it with the stamp image and one of the sentiments from the “Christmas Cheer” stamp set in the Nordic Christmas collection. I colored the image using my Spectrum Noir markers. I also used one of the printable pattern papers and tags from the Nordic Christmas papercrafting CD. I added some Snow Writer texture paint to the hat and boots.
