Blank Page Muse/I Brake for Stamps: Snow Family

A friend and I were talking today about getting our Christmas/holiday cards finished, but we were both trying to figure out cards that we can mass produce that didn't take a long time to do. I think I found the stamp that I will be using for some of my cards this year! This is "Snow Family" from Blank Page Muse/I Brake for Stamps (BPM/IBFS). It's an adorable stamp that's easy to color and cut. Add a few trees and a snowy background and you have a beautiful card. 

This month's BPM/IBFS theme is "Stencil It" so the goal is to use a stencil on each project. I used the "Butterfly Trails Circles Patterns Mixed Media Stencil" from BPM/IBFS to create the snowy background.
