Here it is…finally! This is the Christmas Card that my Mom decided she wanted to do this year. It is almost exactly like the card featured in the Holiday Mini Catalog on page 11. When my Mom picked that as her card, I was blown away. She is usually a simple, rustic, forest/pinecone style look and this was not the card I thought she would pick. In fact, I saw the Wonderland Stamp Set and thought that has her written all over it. Instead, I was in love with that set as you can see here, here and here! So let’s get started on how we created this card!!!
I used a Crumb Cake card base and stamped the snow pieces from the Happy Scenes Stamp Set in Whisper White Craft Ink. I also used the coordinating Hearth & Home Framelits so you can Bundle and Save 15%! For the layers, I started with a piece of striped paper from the Home For Christmas Designer Series Paper. We stamped the tree and birdie scene in Chocolate Chip and then colored in the birdies with a Cherry Cobbler Marker. To add a little sparkle to the snow, I took some Dazzling Details and ran it along the ground! We cut out the window frame in Whisper White and the window box in Bermuda Bay. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the window frame to add it to the scene so that it would have some dimension and look more like a window scene! We cut a Tea Lace Doily into 3 pieces so we could get the most out of them. Some of the pieces were longer and some were shorter but they all looked great! We adhered the doily to the window box and then to the window all with Snail Adhesive! I stamped the Noel greeting from the Happy Scenes Stamp Set in Cherry Cobbler onto scrap pieces of Whisper White! Then we punched it out with the Word Window Punch and cut off one end! This is your chance to use those really little scraps that you have been saving! 🙂 Then we punched a hole with the 1/8″ Handheld Circle Punch and added some Gold Cord Trim into a bow. We added the greeting with Stampin’ Dimensionals and that’s it!!!
This was the most detailed card I created all season I think! She loved it and we had a wonderful putting it together so that’s all that matters!!! My heart is full! 🙂
