CottageCutz Challenge #6 - HOLIDAY

Hi, Vladka is here!

Thank you very much for all 33 great cards and projects you've made for Challenge #5. Two lucky winners will be announced at the end of this post. So, stay tuned.

And here is time to start new challenge. 
This time theme is HOLIDAY

So, create a card or on any other gift for a Holiday, such as Thanksgiving or Christmas... 

We all love to create holiday cards, don't we? So, grab your favorite Christmas or Thanksgiving dies and create something. But please, use ONLY CottageCutz dies and not any other dies. "Add your link" button is available under the list of used dies. If you are not familiar with this button, please check this post for more explanation.  Challenge will be closed on 30st of September!

So, before I announced the winers, I'm going to show you my project for today. Here is my card:


White card base: 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 inches (cut 5 1/2 x 11 inches, fold in half)
Additional piece of white cardstock and some white and red cardstock to cut out the die cuts

Other Supplies:

CottageCutz Dies: Listed Below
Distress Ink: Tumbled Glass, Fired brick, Aged Mahogany, Gathered Twigs, Ground Espresso
Other: Scissors, Paper trimmer, Sizzix machine, Scor-buddy, White watercolor in tube, paint brush

1. Apply some Tumbled glass distress ink on the acrylic block and add also some water. Mixed with the paint brush. Use large paint brush and apply color on the additional piece of paper. Let it dry or use heat gun to speed the process.

2. Mix small amount of white watercolor or acrylic paint with water and flick some droplets of the mixture on the previous colored surface. Let it dry.

3. Cut two Cardinals out of red cardstock and distress the edges with Aged mahogany distress ink. Now cut two more cardinals out of white cardstock and color the beaks and surface around it. Glue these on the top of the red Cardinals. Color also the branch and the Birdhouse with red and brown distress inks. Apply some white paint also on the branches and Birdhouse.

5. With Happy Holidays Notecard die, cut also the expression out of red cardstock. Use scissors to cut of just Happy Holidays part. Glue everything together as shown on the photo. Card is now finished.


And now go back to our challenge a little bit more. As I told you before, two lucky winners will be randomly chosen and will get gift certificate for Scrapping Cottage store.

First one will get gift certificate value of 50$...

... and second one in the value of 25$.
