*** Christmas Joy

Thanks for taking time out of your busy day to stop by. Today I would like to share with you an easel card I made featuring a Tiddly Inks digital image that I just bought; Winter Wryn.  I coloured her with my Copics and then fussy cut her out and attached her with a triple layer of foam squares to make this winter scene.
 
 
I used a Spellbinder's die to cut out the main white parts and used them as the base for this rectangle easel card. I matted them and formed the easel back with a cranberry coloured cardstock. I then traced the inside of the same die on to first a red printed DP [the wall] and a wood look DP [the floor] and adhered them to the center. I used a different die to cut the scalloped baseboard. Another die was used to cut out the window. I adhered a piece of snowflake DP the back of the window and then attached it to the easel front with foam squares. I used a Sizzix die to cut out the Christmas tree and another Spellbinders to cut out the pine bough branches. The big snowflakes were made using a Martha Stewart punch. I added a twine bow and button to the center of the pine boughs, lots of glitter to the snowflakes and a wooden star, some faux snow, "gem bulbs" and a hand cut pot to the Christmas tree.
 
 
I added a couple more die cuts to the base of the card and then mounted a free digital sentiment which I punched out with a circle punch to the center with more foam squares.

 
This card was a lot of fun to make, especially watching as all the pieces came together.
Thanks again for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
hugs,
Nancy
