Sending Christmas Cheer
by Nancy Penir
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!
