Christmas Scene


It's Anja here. I got a full package of new Christmas dies and finally started creating with it. Today I have my first Christmas card for this season for you to see.

For this card I used:
- Cottage Cutz die (Santa Over Christmas Town, Circle Set),
- Distress Inks,
- white card base (15x15 cm),
- white card stock for die cuts,
- watercolor paper for background (14,5x14,5 cm),
- colored paper for die cuts (yellow, grey, green, black),
- perfect pearls,
- white pigment ink,
- colored sprays (shades of blue),
- masking tape,
- heat gun,
- scissors,
- artificial snow (dry),
- paper glue.

First I cut the houses out of white card stock. I glued piece of yellow and grey paper on the back.

Next I cut the trees from green card stock.

Then the Santa and his reindeer out of black card stock.

Then I cut the snowflakes and spritzed it with mix of water and perfect pearls powder to give it a bit of shine.

Then I started on he background. I used watercolor paper and spritzed it wit acrylic sprays. I dried the paper with the heat gun.

Next I used perfect pearls and dried it again.

When I had my background colored I trimmed it and cut a hole out for the moon. I colored around the hole with white ink. I also cut a piece of white paper for the ground. I used scissors for cutting this time.

Then I arranged the card together. I used glue for all the parts of the house and trees where there should be snow. On top of the glue I sprinkled artificial sow and let it dry.

And my card was done.

That's all from me for today.

Have a nice Sunday and see you again next week.
