Cottage Cutz Winter Wonderland Scene Christmas card
Hi blogging friends
The card I am sharing today is another clean and simple card done in similar vein to my last two posts (see HERE and HERE). Hope you aren't getting too bored?!? I guess this is my way of kind-of speeding up the process when I need to make alot of cards in a short space of time but I get really bored if I make 2 or more of the same card so I love to change things up a little even if I might be using similar products and layouts. I am trying to see how many of my die cut shapes fit inside the MFT Photo Card Frame dies and see it as a fun challenge to see what I can make.
The aqua glitter cardstock frame was diecut using a My Favorite Things - Merry Photo Card Frame die and I trimmed off the word 'Merry' because the word covered up my scene. The dot embossing is a retired embossing folder by Cuttlebug - Kars Snowflakes. You will most likely not be able to find this embossing folder anywhere online but if you check THIS post, I have several suggestions for alternative embossing folders that you can use.
The scene is a die by Cottage Cutz - Winterland Wonderland Scene. Because I wanted to have a space to add a sentiment, I used one of the dies from the My Favorite Things Snow Drifts set and diecut some white cardstock and layered that over the bottom of the diecut scene.
The snowflake on the bottom LHS is by My Favorite Things - Snowflakes Trio (I used the smallest snowflake in the set) and the snowflake on the RHS above the Church was punched using a Martha Stewart Snow Flurry edge punch ie: it is one of the leftover snowflake punchies from using the punch. I glued the scene and snowflakes down using Tombow Mono Multi glue then attached the scene to my white cardstock base and trimmed the edges to 1/16" using my Perfect Layers Tools - apart from the top of the card which is where the card fold is.
The 'Peace' is a die by Elizabeth Craft Designs and was diecut from the same aqua glitter cardstock and attached using Tombow Mono Multi glue.
Lastly, I added a Hero Arts rhinestone to each snowflake centre.
