Christmas Car & Trailer

Hello Scrapping Cottage friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with us today. It's Mary Marsh here bringing you the Saturday edition of the Blog. 

We have the new release of Christmas Part 2 in the online store and they are all in stock and available for delivery. There are 34 new designs in this release. 

This release has something for everyone. So if you prefer a more religious tone to your cards- we have you covered. If you like a more whimsical design featuring Santa, reindeer, gnomes, moose or even a hot chocolate theme you will find some really cute dies.

I actually do a combo of religious and whimsical for my Christmas cards. Today, for your viewing pleasure, I am going whimsical with the new Christmas Car & Trailer. It's part of the Part 1 release

I have a friend that has a trailer and camping is a big part of her life now that she and hubby are retired. So I made this card for her. So let's get started with some details on how I created this card.  

Step 1: I started with cutting out the card and trailer. I used the die packaging for colors. Our dies always have such beautiful coloring that it makes it easy for you to use cardstock or any coloring medium. My preference is cardstock.
Next I decided on my background designer paper. This paper reminded me of a blue sky with even a bit of snow.

blue card base: 5 3/4" x 4 1/2"
white layering panel: 5 1/2" x 4 1/4"
designer paper layer: 5 3/8" x 4 1/8"
I decided to emboss the designer paper with a birch tree embossing folder. Just thought it would add interest to the card and give the appearance of a wooded campsite.
Step 2: I am ready to start card assembly. Attached the designer paper layer to white layer panel with double sided tape.
To attach the die-cut images I used dimensional adhesive. This adds depth to your design.
I attached the image panel to the blue card base with double sided adhesive.
I felt like the card wasn't complete so I decided to add a Merry Christmas sentiment and several snowflakes. The snowflakes are from the Holiday Hedgehog die. The sentiment is from last year's Christmas collection - Merry Christmas w/Deer Family
Well that's it for me for this week. I hope I have given you an idea for using this new die. It makes a perfect card for your camping friends and family. See you next Saturday!
