Hi all! Thank you for stopping by today and thank you Taheerah for inviting us to participate in the Advent Calendar Extravaganza today! We are here with a Northern Lights theme holiday card using our arctic stencil for the watercolor background.

We love to use stencils and normally we will add color by sponging or daubing color but for this we used watercolor and it gave a northern lights effect.
We fussy cut the polar bear and penguin with a little bit of color added to the penguin with a touch of felt added to the penguin hat. Our Igloo die will cut out all of the triangles so to die cut so that it stays solid, we die cut them with double paper and then you will get both layers!
Thank you for joining us today! We look forward to seeing all of the other creative ideas in the days to come!
