Merry Christmas w/ Peachy Keen Stamps ~{Trendspotting}

Good Morning everyone!!!

I’m up on the Peachy Keen Stamps Blog today to share a Trendspotting project.

Christmas is in the air and GOLD is big right now so while searching the wonderful world of Pinterest I came across this gorgeous picture. 
Trendspotting: Leopard print and black and white Christmas decor!
Pinterest Image found HERE

I used the cow print as the basis for my project as well as the gold, black and white color combo to make my Christmas card using 3 of the newly released stamps from PK. 
Here is what I came up with....
 I love heat the way it looks and the texture it adds to a project. I started this card out by using the PK~1437 Cow Print Square 4.25" and heat embossing it on kraft cardstock using some gold embossing powder. Then using the sentiment from the new PK~1449 Holiday Sentiments set, I stamped it onto the kraft cardstock base in between a small space I left purposely left between the cow print.  For that adorable image, I used the new PK~1439 Charlotte & Junior stamp, colored him using my copic markers and to make his vest match the cow print background, I used a gold pen to color it in.
Here is another angle of my card where you can see the beautiful heat embossed background. I also placed the image up on some foam pop dots for a bit more dimension :)
