Mama Elephant Stamp Highlight: Puffy Holiday Greetings

Hello and welcome!
Today, the Mama Elephant Design Team is highlighting a fun and unique sentiment stamp set, Puffy Holiday Greetings

I tried to create a window view of a heartwarming scene with a family of bears setting up for Christmas on a snowy day. The sentiment hanging on the wall completes the scene, don't you think?

To begin, I stamped and colored the images with Copic markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies.

On the A2 size background panel, I created the living room floor and wall using masking tape and Distress Inks on Bristol cardstock. 

For the front panel, I used an A2 size white cardstock and die-cut it with the window frame using the Peek a Frame creative cut as shown. Then, I trimmed two heat resistant acetates to the size of the window. I stamped the acetate with the smaller snowflakes from Holly's Snowflakes set with Versamark ink, and applied white embossing powder. I also randomly sprinkled on more white powder to create snow. I used a heat tool to set everything. 

I adhered the acetates behind the windows. To make the snow on the window sills, I used a snow marker and applied heat to puff it up.

I mounted the window frame to the background panel with two layers of mounting tape. For the "Merry Christmas" sentiment from Puffy Holiday Greetings, I stamped it with black ink and cut it out. I added a little green string around the sentiment, and adhered it with the other images onto the card. Some of the images were attached with a double sided tape, and others with a single layer of mounting tape. To finish, I attached the panels to a top folding card base.
