Welcome to week fifteen of the Heart Of Christmas Blog Hop!
I love taking inspiration for card making from our Stampin’ Up! catalogues – they are full of amazing ideas! One card that caught my eye was this card on page 36 of the July-December Mini Catalogue.
The clever detail in this card is the way they stamped the large tree stamp from the Window Wishes stamp set onto cardstock before using the smaller solid tree dies to die cut the trees for this scene.
My version of this card uses some of the colours in the gorgeous Whimsy and Wonder DSP that was in last year’s Holiday catalogue: Blushing Bride, Polished Pink, Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron and Mossy Meadow.
I decided to use the curved Basic Border die to create my snowscape. Two pieces of Basic White cardstock were cut with this die and positioned over a front layer of Basic White cardstock on a Mossy Meadow Card base.
I then stamped a large tree on two of the layers and stamped assorted trees and houses on scraps of Whisper White, die cutting with the Window dies and then building my scene as I went along.
Once I was happy with the arrangement I took a photo as a guide to remind myself where everything went and glued everything down, starting with the base layer.
The “Merry Christmas” greeting was stamped using two of the sentiment stamps in the Window Wishes stamp set. I simply inked up “Merry” and the “Christmas” but not the rest of the sentiments.
You could make this little scene in any colour you want and instead of using the Basic Border dies to create the landscape, you could simply freehand cut or trace around the edge of a plate.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the lovely Rosa Leyden – I can’t wait to see what Rosa has created today!
