Festive Scene

I made this card for the Cuttlebug Mania 'Christmas (use any colour but red and green)' challenge and the Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge 'Favourite Technique or Product' (I've chosen Inlaid Die Cuts - my favourite technique as I find it very relaxing and I love to see the finished image).  I'm also entering the Crafting with Dragonflies 'Get your Christmas On' challenge, the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown 'Pick a Previous 2016 Challenge' (I've chosen the July 2016 Colour Challenge - Shades of Blue, plus White and Silver), Happy Little Stampers - Anything Goes with Dies challenge and the Crafty Calendar Challenge 'Christmas Time'.  The paper and card were all from my snippets drawer so I'm off to the Christmas playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.


Card blank: 6" x 6" white hammer
Dies: Creative Dies 'Festive Scene' (magazine freebie), Spellbinders Nestabliites 'Standard Circles Large'
Snippets: Blue and silver pearlescent, white hammer, white glitter, thin white silk card and blue paper

I die cut a circle and the Festive Scene from blue pearlescent card and glued the scene onto the backing.  I attached the blue paper onto thin white card (to make it the same thickness as the rest of the card) and then die cut the sky.  I die cut the snow from white glitter card and the windows from silver pearlescent card.  I then inlaid all the pieces into the Festive Scene.  I layered a square of white hammer card onto blue pearlescent card and attached it to the centre of the card blank.  The completed Festive Scene was then attached to the centre.

Love this card Kath! My die like that one went like a tuile and ended up in the bin, sigh. I made just one card and can see why I loved it and was so upset at the die folding up :( You really did a beautiful job here!

Hugs
