Make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. And when they’re easily mass-produced, well, that just makes life so much easier, right? I have a cute little card for you today that was inspired by one of those beautiful ceramic holiday villages that used to grace the top of my Grammy’s credenza when I was younger. It was always so beautifully, pristinely white, so I tried to recreate it as best I could with the new Neighborhood Paper Layering dies from the Season of Wonder Holiday Catalog from Hero Arts. Super simple, and would be a great mass-produced holiday card! Let’s get started with the details!
I began by die cutting just the interior of the two dies. The die set comes with the option to die cut around the edge of the detailed central die, allowing for a full die cut, or you can simply die cut the center portion and leave the rest of the card front as is. I die cut the detailed portion from some white card stock, then popped out all of the windows and doors to create a sweet little village scene. I then stamped the greeting from Ski Holiday using Navy ink. Next, I added some foam tape to the back, taking care not to cover any windows or doors, and backed this piece with an A2 panel of Pool Layering Paper for a cool, wintry effect.
The final touch was to add some Nuvo Snowfall Glitter Accents to add some extra texture and further enhance that overall icy, wintry feel.
Well, that’s all for me today! Wouldn’t this card be so great for mass production? Leave off the foam tape and use regular adhesive and it would be super easy to mail, as well! Thanks so much for stopping by, and have a marvelous day!
I like it! And I’d like seeing the underlying paper be gold, to look like glowing lights!
super pretty Emily!
