O Holy Night
by Tina Wilstrup


Hi Poppy fans! It's now 5 days till Christmas and I have a card for you that shows the calm of that holy night.

I die cut and Copic colored the Whittle sleepy fox and the village houses. I picked out the windows from the houses and colored them individually so the houses look like they're filled with light and trees.

I forgot to take a picture of the background (sorry) but before assembling I inkblended the backgrond with oxide inks and splattered it with silver acrylic paint. I hand cut 2 panels for snowy hills and inked the top of them. The top layer is popped up. I then popped up the houses and fox and shaded under them with Copic markers. Notice the fox' pawprints. He loves the silence and the squeeking snow.

My plan was to use the O holy noght flourish as smoke from one of the chimneys, and so I wanted to heat emboss it. In order not to break the intricate cut I layered 5 cuts. I then heat embossed 3 layers of WOW! white twinkle embossing powder. It's white with silver glitter and perfect for the smoke.

This is my last post this year, so I thank you for all your sweet comments and I hope your Christmas is as calm and cozy as this scene.  I wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy new year.

Hi Tina, This is a lovely card, I adore your background and I adore how you have created 'light' within each window pane and enhanced with the look of christmas trees inside, the finishing touch is the O Holy Night smoke emerging from the chimney and the cuddly Whittle Fox, I love this !!
I hope your Christmas is fabulous and Best Wishes for 2020, I hope the New Year is kind to you. Thank you for your inspiration.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

so pretty, love your glowing lights in the houses and rolling hills, the fox is so sweet!

The way you made the houses look--wonderful!
