poppystamps Cottage Window Scene Card…


Hi cardmakers and friends…welcome to my Country Winter Wonderland on a card post today!

I pulled out some scene dies from last year to use with this NEW poppystamps Cottage Window die. The house is from the NEW poppystamps Village Houses die and I embellished the card with the NEW poppystamps Holly Outline die.

This could easy be a Winter thank you card or any occasion card for after Christmas!

I left the holly cut in the die, turned it over and inked it through the holes in the die, similar to stenciling… pouncing and adding color with the mini ink blending tools. Fun to do something a little different.

I stamped the sentiments from the Memory Box Mistletoe Swag stamp set using the Precision Press Advanced Stamping Tool.

For the scene behind the window I used poppystamps Open Hillside and Sloping Hillside dies.  There are so many Memory Box or poppystamps dies that would work though. YES!

The two tree pieces are glued together flat and the house is glued together and then glued to the scene flat.  Then using mounting tape around the window frame I adhered the scene pieces to the window, then I added another layer of mounting tape to the frame to stick it to the A2 cardbase.  It will still go through the mail for one stamp, it’s not to thick. 😀

I added the Holly Outline die cut with mounting tape also, just one layer though.   That’s it!  I really love this! I didn’t spray it all sparkly or frosty but you sure could!  I debated whether to or not! lol  I wish you could see it in person!

Thank you all for stopping by today!  It’s so fun to show and tell!  I hope it inspires you and if you ever want to send me pictures of what you make or link me up if you’re posting, I love to see other’s show and tell too!  I love inspiration!

Take care and have a beautiful, thankful week! I am thankful for you!
