Walrus & Narwhal Winter Card featuring Lawn Fawn

Hi everyone! Today’s post features a card I made some time ago; unfortunately, I just had not gotten around to actually posting it (oopsies!). This fun card features the very cute Walrus and Narwhal from the “Critters in the Arctic” set by Lawn Fawn. I love that Lawn Fawn always thinks outside of the box when it comes to their critters… I mean seriously, a Narwhal? How cool is that?! :)

I started off by die cutting the background panel with the A2-sized stitched rectangle die by Lawn Fawn. To create my background, I masked off the stitched edges to create a white mat and I used Distress Inks to create an icy, arctic backdrop. I then colored the stamped images with Copic Markers and cut them out using the coordinating dies.

Walrus: E42, E44, E47, W0, W2, R20
Narwhal: B000, C2, C4, C6
Iceberg: B0000, B000, B00

Once I made sure my distressed background was completely dry, I heat embossed the snowflakes with Ranger “Holographic” embossing powder and used Ranger “Liquid Platinum” embossing powder to heat emboss the sentiment from the “Joy to the Woods” set. I die cut some vellum using the large stitched scalloped border die and used the negative portion to create the waves. I then tucked in all of the stamped images behind the vellum waves. To finish the card, I applied some clear Wink of Stella to the iceberg and Glossy Accents to the tusks of both critters.

I tried to keep this card relatively masculine and postage-friendly. I just love how the distressed background and vellum give the illusion of dimension without adding bulk. I hope you enjoyed today’s card featuring the very cute critters from the “Critters in the Arctic” set. Thanks again for stopping by! ♥
