Good Saturday afternoon. My project today is a snowy Christmas house scene made using the Impression Obsession Brick House, Square House, Snowy Roof, Pine Sprig Cluster, Fir Sprigs, Evergreen Trees and Cardinals. The frame was made the Lawn Fawn Fancy Scalloped Rectangle Stackables and Nestabilities Matting Basics B. I went with all white for the house and background so the red and green would really pop.
I assembled the windows, drapes and door and attached to the front of the house using glossy accents. I applied white embossing paste to the roof and chimney section with a Sofft spatula and sprinkled with clear glitter to add sparkle. I applied Cosmic Glitter Glue to the icicles and sprinkled with glitter. When dry the roof and icicles were attached together using double stick tape. I applied touches of embossing paste to the windows and applied glitter. The trees were crimped and then covered with paste and glitter. All the pieces were set aside to dry. I attached tiny springs of fir and red berries to the windows and applied touches of red glitter. I cut the tips off several fir sprigs and hand cut a tiny circle wreath base. I attached the tiny sprigs to the circle with glossy accents and then finished with red berries with red stickles and a handmade red bow made with thin strips of red cardstock. The wreath was attached to the front of the house with glossy accents.
I lined up the scalloped rectangle and matting basics rectangle on my big shot using my magnetic platform and cut the frame. I hand cut a ground snow piece using my deckle scissors and attached it to the back of the frame using double stick tape. I masked off the frame around the ground snow section to protect it and applied embossing paste and glitter. I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attached it to the card base. I tucked the house in behind the ground piece and attached with mounting tape. I attached the trees on both sides of the house using mounting tape and glue dots. I finished by adding the cardinal to the sky area using glossy accents.
This was a time consuming card to make but oh what fun it was for me. I especially love the look of the snow covered crimped trees. Do you own a crimper and have it buried so far deep in your crafting space that don’t even remember you have one? I know it is considered an old-fashioned tool but I love how it adds dimension and interest.
Thanks for coming by and I hope you have a great Saturday.
