Happy Scenes Christmas
Card Sketch #165
This weekend we finally had our sons 6th Birthday Celebration and Party. We had about 12 kids and parents in our home. While we were decorating for the party, our son asked if we could put up the Christmas Tree as part of the Paw Patrol decorations. So, it seems I’ve passed my love of Christmas onto my son. We were able to hold off on putting up the tree but I have a feeling he’ll be asking for the tree while Grandma and Grandpa are visiting in a couple of weeks. I believe we will have our Christmas Tree up before Halloween!I may complain about Christmas showing up in stores early but as a crafter we need our Christmas supplies early so we can start preparing! With that in mind, don’t forget you need to start thinking about making your Christmas Cards… Get them done now so you can truly enjoy the Holidays! I know that for this year we are going to start our Christmas Celebration before Halloween because a little boy wants the Christmas Tree put up with the lights. (Really, all he wants are the Christmas Lights!).
I hope you enjoy this weeks Christmas Card that I made for the Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 165. I’m using the Happy Scenes Stamp Set with the coordinating Hearth & Home Thinlits Dies. I love how this bundle comes together to create a serene scene as you look through the window. I miss the Minnesota winters just after a fresh snowfall with everything a pristine white.
The Season of Cheer Designer Series Paper with the snowflakes sets the tone for this card as the background attached with a Night of Navy border. Behind the window pane, I stamped the Evergreen scene with White Craft Ink then used the Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder to create a shimmer effect. The window pane is cut from Whisper White using the Hearth & Home Thinlits Dies.
The embellishments on the card start with a 3/4″ inch circle punched out of the Silver Glimmer Paper. I added a Night of Navy banner. The sentiment features the “Peace” from the Christmas Greetings Thinlits Dies. Confession time… I meant to add some Silver Thread behind the Night of Navy Banner but forgot to attach it so ended up leaving it off the card but I do think it would really be the perfect touch of elegance to the card. In the upper right corner, I finished the card off with a snowflake from the Snowflake Elements.
