Making your own Nordic background.....

 I absolutely love knitted Nordic sweaters and mitts! So with that in mind I had this Waltzing Mouse stamp set called Nordic Winter....that totally resembles Nordic to me. I thought I would make my own paper using this gorgeous set...I had a gorgeous red, taupe and Nordic blue ink pad to play with.I just stamped on the back of cream bazzil paper... and this was the result.....
 The adorable image is a LOTV those! This guy skiing has Nordic all over him!LOL
I used distress inks and added a little glitter for snow. I made 5 of these Christmas cards to add to my growing collection...thank goodness I will have some to mail out this year.

Have a wonderful weekend....and hopefully you get in some crafty time!
