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.

Blog Candy

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.
