Sending Christmas Cheer

Hi there and welcome to Poppystamps! My card for you features a new favorite Poppystamps die, Cottage Window. A timeless die set, it can be used any time of year. Thought I'd share a card I made into a Christmas window, already mailed and into it's new home. Now, I love to creat scenes. I get an idea and look for a way to bring that idea to life!

Cottage Window has 4 main elements. I gave it a shadow by backing it with a darker card stock.

Through the window you can see the home's Christmas tree. Here's how I made the tree.

These trees are too small for what I was going for, so I simply created a larger image from all the small trees.

Here they are die cut from 2 green card stocks, one light green the other dark, and detached from the die cut base.

Once assembled, I added Nuvo drops to simulate ornaments. (I also added a bit of glitter too.)

Outside, is another grouping of florals, this time from the bottom of the Festive Noel die.

Once you have an idea for a card front, look through your dies and use what you need from them to create your  own design and scene.

Above all, have fun!

Merriest of Christmases and Have a wonderfully creative New Year! Cheers!

Awwww..... Not only it's absolutely delightful, but so clever too!! LOVE how you realized a more big tree from a few of little ones and decoring it with Nuvo drops!! The window and its floral ornament are adorable!
Thanks so much for all your inspirations around the year and I wish you a sweet and peaceful Christmas with your loved ones!

This is so beautiful. I love how you pulled so many different elements together to create this card. Surely the recipient of this card has it on display in a prominent place!

The cheery tree behind the window is spectacular! Love how you used both these dies!

Hi Nancy, Wow !! I love this !! This is a magical 'scene', with a little 'insight' into the cosy room on the other side of the glass windows, it conjours up really lovely Christmassy thoughts.
I love how you created your 'full' christmas tree and baubles.
Enjoy your Christmas Holidays.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Just love the pretty christmas tree through the window, so sweet!
