With only 107 days until Christmas..... It's that time of year to get started on Christmas cards!! This was really hard to photograph and is much prettier in real life. Here is how to create this card....
~ Cut a white panel that is cut at 3 5/8" by 4 7/8" and punch a 2-1/4" circle on the top right side.
~Hand cut 2 snow hills that are 4 7/8" long and use one of them as a mask to sponge some more snow hills in the background (higher than your hand cut hills will be) with Memento Summer Sky. Then sponge the rest of the edges of your hand cut hills.
~Die cut Fir Trees DIE084-V in white and sponge all three trees a bit on the boughs with Memento Summer Sky.
~Adhere the largest tree to the white panel on the left side and the smallest tree a bit farther over.
~Adhere one snow hill.
~Adhere the middle sized tree.
~Adhere the last snow bank with pop ups or foam tape.
~Cut a piece of white card stock that is a bit larger than a 2-1/4" circle. Hold the white panel over it and through the punched circle, stamp and emboss Magic Wand C5175 (sentiment stamp), with Versamark and silver embossing powder.
~Pop your snowy fir trees and hills panel over the sentiment so that you can read it through the circle.
~Pop it up over a 4" by 5 1/4" silver panel and mount it on a white card base.
~Die cut one of the gable decorations from the Brick House DIE119-Z in Silver Mirror paper and adhere in the top right corner.
~To finish it off add some rhinestones to the corner and under the sentiment. Add Stardust Stickles to the hand cut hills and trees.
Hope you give it a try it is really easy to make!
