I started out by white embossing the Tree Silhouette in the background on the left side. I does not show up a lot in the photo. The background was sponged with blue Distress Ink. By stamping the trees in the background it gave this scene some depth. Everything was die cut using white card stock. The Country House was die cut and backed with a piece of light yellow card stock for light in the windows. The pretty Wrought Iron Fence was die cut twice so it would fit across the front of the card. I really like the small size of this pretty fence. I get questions about how to get these die cuts out of the dies. If they don't just fall out after die cutting them, I hit them on the edge of the table and they usually fall right out. These dies are very sturdy. I have never had a problem getting the die cuts out of the dies. The Winterland Tree was die cut and then backed with a piece of light green card stock. I used scissors to cut around the outside edge. The Deer Trio was die cut and only two of them used on the front of the card. I saved the other one for the inside. The Puffy Clouds were die cut and only two of the three were used. The snowflakes were in my stash of snowflakes - most coming form the Martha Stewart snowflake border punches. A bow was added to complete the front.
ONE MORE PROJECT:
I still need tags for packages and I used a Sizzix die to create these cute stocking tags.
