Christmas fireplace card

Hi, Janja here!

Warm fireplace and laughter in the eyes are the words with which I describe the card that I share with you today.
Let's see how it is made.


For the card we need:
- white card base: 4.3 x 5.5" (11 x 14 cm), folded
- kraft cardstock: 3.9 x 5.2" (10 x 13 cm)
- patterned paper: 3.74 x 4.9" (9,5 x 12,5 cm)
- white and color cardstock

Trim and fold white cardstock in half for the card base. Place patterned paper on kraft cardstock and fasten both together on the card front. Stamp Marry Christmas on upper part of patterned paper.


Cut out all pieces from different colors of cardstock with the CottageCutz die - fireplace with accessories. Shadow them around the edges with Distress inks. Some pieces are small, so it is the best to compose them immediately together.
 


And as they say .... there's no smoke without fire .... yet a little smoke. 
With a brush apply Distress ink Iced Spruce on a white piece of watercolor paper. When it is dry, attach it to the back side of the fireplace.
 


Completed card.
 

And don't forget on our challenge #7 - fall. You still have time to share your projects with us. 

I hope you have enjoyed this card. Thank you for coming over and have a great day.
