Christmas Greetings, all! Hoping you're enjoying the holiday season, even with all that's plagued us this past year. I have a card to share that hopefully brings some cheer along with inspiration, using some dies that can be used any time or season.
The Townhouses trio is a fun set of 3 townhomes with separate roofs, allowing you to change up the colors. My card today uses them on a shaker.
After I folded my 4 1/4 x 11" cardstock I positioned my square frame where I wanted the shaker to be. Then drew within the square window.
I kept the pencil mark faint, but you can see where it's drawn (if you look carefully). Then I used post it notes to create a barrier for sponging.
The sponging was done rather randomly, slightly heavier on top, sort of like a snowy flurry.
Here's a closeup of the townhomes. I decided to add 'snow' to the rooftops (embossing) and doubled the homes so the windows would have a bit of contrast.
Snowflake sequins are the sweetest shaker elements, don't you think?
Despite a year of chaos and turmoil, it's still the most wonderful time of year. And my prayer is that you find peace and joy in the beauty of the holidays. Blessings!
