Winnie and Walter Grand Merry and Peppermint Zone Die (Bonus Sneak of Yeti's!)

Hello Folks! I must warn you, I've got a lot of photos to share with you ... I was just so excited about these cards that I had a hard time putting the camera down : )

Winnie & Walter's new release continues today, as we feature the In a Word: Grand Merry stamp set and the Peppermint Zone Cutaway Die.

This was the original card I sent Shay. As I told her, I had my pjs on and was about to go to bed, but I headed back into my craft room and spent another 4 hours playing around because I just loved how these stamps and dies were turning out! Let's take a look at how one card became four ...

I had some extra stamped sentiments from the In a Word: Grand Merry set, and rather than toss them, I made new card bases and adhered the sentiments to them. I removed the Yeti family pulling their sled full of presents (sneak of a set yet to come!!) from the original card and tucked them in between the snow drifts I hand cut.

Since the sled is going downhill here, I bent that part of the die where the rope is pulling the sled to give it the right angle. And that tree, Love!! It is the middle of winter, after all.

Here's a close-up at those cute Yeti's!! They really just make any project adorable. And, just like my favorite polar bears, they are WHITE, so not much coloring involved!

This left the original card base without a Yeti, so I cut and colored the skiing Yeti, and had him cross country skiing through a pine forest.

I appreciate that the Yeti set comes with the bare branched tree as well as an evergreen to make it easy for you to create a little scene like this.

I've got the front snow drift popped up on a piece of cardstock, and the Yeti on some pop dots, to create some dimension in the scene.

You may recall The Peppermint Zone stencil from a couple years ago, well now you can get it in a die! Here I cut it from red cardstock, and then cut it again with a circle die. I like how it makes a nice focal point to a card. Just perfect for a ... Yeti!!

The peppermint is just adhered with foam tape in the center, so the tips of the swirls are all loose.

Would you open a present from a Yeti? In a red forest? : )

This card really shows off how much I'm obsessed with the sentiments in the Grand Merry set ... they are just the perfect bold font and they all stretch the length of a vertical A2 card (with a nice margin on each side). Combining them is easy as they're all the same width.

This Yeti is hiding behind a tree, looking to scare a passer-by. Silly Yeti! He's actually part of a trio of caroling Yeti's, but I just cut all of them off. You can see a few lines of the book they were holding under the tree.

I like the bold red of the Santa hat tying in with the red "Christmas" sentiment.

And there you have it, a quartet of Yeti Christmas cards! I really can't tell you how much fun I had with these!

I think I may end up keeping these guys all together : )
