Good Sunday morning. My project today is a country village snow scene made using the Memory Box Countryside Circle paired with the My Favorite Things Mini Scallop Square Stax and a tiny star from the Impression Obsession Sun and Moon set. I love using the white and pale blue color combination for snowy holiday cards. There is something so peaceful about the combination and using a bit of sparkles adds special touch.
The Countryside Circle is a small die and I felt being placed on a large card would overwhelm and distract. I decided that 4.50” square would be the perfect size. I cut the scene die out once in full and cut the tree and house section out two more times. I thought the little house a three trees looked a little lonely so I cut the extra houses and trees apart and attached them to the back of the circle frame. I applied a thin line of Cosmic Glitter Glue along the ground level of the scene and covered the trees and then applied glitter to add a little sparkle. I attached the scene layer to the blue scalloped layer using mounting tape and then attached the blue layer to the card base with mounting tape. I applied falling snow to the sky using a Uni-bal white gel pen. I added a tiny sparkly star in the sky to finish. So sad that the sparkle doesn’t really show well in the photos.
I have the Elizabeth Craft Designs Outdoor Edges die set that I just “had to have” but never used. LOL! I thought it would be the perfect set to offer as blog candy to add to someone’s scenery die stash. Leave a comment on this post by 5:00 pm Friday, Oct 7th telling me what your favorite holiday color combination is. Red, white and green is my absolute favorite but this blue and white combo is certainly running a close second. I’ll announce the randomly chosen winner on my Saturday morning post.
Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a wonderful day.
Card size: 4.50” Square
