To make this card, I used the new Heffy Doodle Eskimo Kisses stamp set to stamp and die cut lots of the fun Eskimo images. I used my MISTI so I could stamp lots quickly at the same time, and used copic friendly ink and card so I could use my alcohol markers to colour the images. I thought it would be fun to create both a scene on the outside and on the inside, so I used some Lawn Fawn dies to help create snowy mounds and a pop up landscape for the inside of my card.

For the background, I wanted to create an Aurora Borealis effect, so I grabbed my Ranger Distress Inks, and used some bright colors first of all, then blended over the top with some chipped sapphire. I inked along the edge of a ripped piece of card to build up diagonal lines of colour on top for a more authentic look. To give my sky a lovely shimmer, I mixed a small amount of Perfect Pearls pigment powder with a little water in a spray bottle and spritzed the mixture over my inked card.

For my greeting I used one of the sentiments from the Eskimo Kisses set, but also used some of the new Heffy Doodle Jet Alphabetters to create the word HELLO. These letters are a great size for adding your own messages or names to your projects. I decided to use some silver embossing powder for my greetings to really make them pop!

For the front of my card, I stamped the fishing hole and used water ripple stamp to add lines inside, and then cut a slit using the coordinating die. This meant I could tuck a little cheeky fish inside. I gave the boy Eskimo a fishing rod, but on the inside, I created a scene using the girl Eskimo, and instead of giving her a fishing rod, I added the spearhead image to the pole to create a spear! I also added the cute baby on her back and surrounded her with lots of fish so it looks like she is having much more success than her friend!
