This card uses the Polar Pals stamp set from Avery Elle. While this cute set has a boatload of winter images, what really drew me in were the snow-geared Eskimo boy and girl. I love that their outfits are similar and that they're looking at each other -- and I can already see myself using this set for a Valentine's card, too!
I used bright tones to color in the boy and the girl, as I wanted to make them pop. I also popped them on foam squares, just so they'd sit up a bit from the background. Although this stamp set has coordinating dies, I just used my trusty scissors to cut the pair out, leaving a small white border.
I wanted to keep the rest of the card very simple. I die-cut a couple of curved rectangles (retired die) out of patterned paper and silver sparkle cardstock. I set the panel against a neutral-colored Nordic Sweater pattern and scattered a few enamel dots around the top.
I really like how this card turned out.
Thanks for reading!
