Christmas Scene

Hello and welcome back!  I've had loads creating a Christmas scene, something that is definitely not my normal type card.  I've used the awesome sketch for the current challenge at Freshly Made Sketches for my card design.

For this card I used the My Monthly Hero October 2017 kit from Hero Arts (kit is sold out but add-ons are still available).  The stamp set has a plethora of cute images for all sorts of Christmas scenes, plus lovely papers that I've also incorporated into my card.  I started by stamping a number of the images on Bristol paper, then colored them with Zig markers and a small paint brush.  The kit has a number of companion dies but not for all the images, so I fussy cut the images without dies.

After all the images were ready, I die cut a white card stock circle for the base, ink blended the sky with Distress Oxide and splattered with water.  I assembled the pieces, including a hillside out of decorative paper that looks like snow included in the kit and another from white card stock that had previously been sprayed with shimmer spray.  I used Stitched Shape Circle framelits in two sizes to create a frame, then all the pieces were added to the base circle.

After embossing a panel of Emerald Envy card stock with the Cable Knit embossing folder, it was layered onto a white card stock base then the strip of glitter paper, circle scene and sentiment were all added.

Thanks for visiting, it's always so appreciated.  I've added a link to the challenge above, so be sure to head over there and enjoy all the beautiful inspiration!

Oh, this is just the cutest card! I was playing around with this kit on the weekend and those images are teeny-tiny but oh, so cute! Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
