Winter Village Scene

 Don't you love all the new dies you can now purchase for making really beautiful cards!    This little village is on a 5"x7" card.  I used 100# card stock because I wanted to create a dimensional scene and wanted a card stock that would not  curl up.  I also tested 80# and it seems to work just fine, however, I had a real problem with 60# card stock on the pop up inside the card.    On top of the base card, I added a 5x7 piece of card stock that was embossed with the eBosser "Delicate Dots" embossing folder.  Along the very top I added the Joy Craft "Snowflake Border". I die cut two of these borders and pieced them so I could have snowflakes all the way across the top.

The larger house on the left is the Marianne COL1326 die.  It comes with the house, the drifting snow to go over the windows, along the roof line and below the chimney, plus a snowflake stamp.  I die cut it using white card stock and colored it by sponging on Distress Inks.  Behind the open windows and door, I added a piece of yellow card stock then added some yellow glitter part way up from the bottom.  There is also yellow glitter in the lamp post and houses in the background. The lamp post, tree and deer are from the Marianne COL1130 die set.  The houses in the background were die cut using the Cheery Lynn "Winter Neighborhood Border" die and I only used two of the houses from this border.  To create dimension to my scene, I cut three different pieces of card stock to look like snow banks, gluing them only along the bottom and the side so I could tuck things between them. I lightly sponged on Weatherd Wood Distress Ink along the top of each snow bank so it would show up.

 All of the die cut pieces were only attached along the bottom so they stand out a little on the top to look dimensional.  After the card was put together, I added Distress Stickles dry glitter "Clear Rock Candy".  This really brought the scene to life!

On the inside I wanted to carry out the theme, so I used the Marianne Design 6003/2003 pop up die.  Once it was folded along the score lines, it was attached to the inside of the card.  The deer was sponged with Tea Dye Distress Ink.  For the sentiment, I gold embossed "Merry Christmas" which is a  stamp from the new JustRite "Grand Christmas Sentiments" stamp set.  Along the very top, I added another Joy Craft "Snowflake Border".  

I think it is so neat to open this pretty scenic card and find a scenic wonderland popup.
