Yay!! It's Waltzingmouse Stamps release day!! I hope you're enjoying the blog waltz!! Today we're previewing one of my favorite sets A Cottage Christmas, nope that's not it on the outside of my card that's the fabulous Say It Loud - Winter Holiday also being released today! The magic is all inside my card this time!! The fab paper I used on the outside of my card is Jovial from Basic Grey. So shall we have a look inside! Say hello to a friendly snowman! He's definitely part of A Cottage Christmas!
Yes, I made a pop-up card! This scene was inside my head the moment I saw A Cottage Christmas, so I had to find a way to make it real! Yep, that's a Christmas Cottage there behind him, just follow the path to the warm glowing cottage.
I LOVE this cottage, the details are amazing, it really was a joy to color! I used acrylic paints to bring it to life and a teeny tiny brush!! I add some dimension I stamped and colored it twice, cut out the centre piece and layered it with foam tape.
The stars from Midnight Feast I stamped and embossed in white and then applied a wash of acrylic paint to create the night sky. The trees in the distance from A Cottage Christmas I stamped and colored in a grey/black, I stamped some more on some separate card and drew a little line across to make the snow tops, then painted with acrylics. I also painted a little path.
I stamped this lovely sentiment also from A Cottage Christmas in the bottom left hand corner. It just fit nicely. So I hope you enjoyed my snowy winter scene! It all folds flat too!
