Project Instructions:

Other products: Grey Card Stock, White Card Stock, Versamark, Metallic Pewter Embossing Powder, Distressed Inks (Walnut Stain and Charcoal Grey), White Super Fine Embossing Powder, Gunsmoke Stickles, Archival Red Geranium Ink, Vintage Sparkle Pink Embossing Powder and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by taking a 12″ x 7″ piece of white card stock and scor it at the 6″ mark to create a 6″ x 7″ card.  Layer the front with a 5 3/4″ x 6 3/4″ piece of grey card stock and a 5 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ piece of decorative paper from the Winter’s Eve Paper Collection.  Next we will build our window.  First I stamped the Window Frame Cling Stamp Set on White card stock using Versamark and heat embossed with Metallic Pewter Embossing Powder before die cutting with the matching die and distressing with Charcoal Grey Ink.  For added dimension I die cut several more layers of the window frame and glued them to the back.  Once your frame is assembled I used an image from the Winter’s Eve Paper Collection fastened on the back and completed the window with die cuts from the Window Box Elements Die out of grey card stock.  The Ornate Sleigh was stamped on paper from the Winter’s Eve Paper Collection using Versamark and heat embossed with White Super Fine Embossing Powder before die cutting with the matching die and finally accented with Gunsmoke Stickles.  The Holly Leaf images were stamped on white card stock with Northern Pine and die cut with the matching die before coloring with Cottage Ivy and Red Geranium inks.  The Poinsettia flowers were stamped on white card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with Vintage Sparkle Pink Embossing Powder and die cut with the matching die before coloring with Rouge Ink and finally shaping the flowers with the Flower Shaping tool.  The images of the presents were stamped on white card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with Metallic Pewter Embossing Powder before die cutting with the matching dies and distressing with Rouge ink and accented with Gunsmoke Stickles.  Finally the image of the toy sled was stamped on white card stock using Rich Cocoa and die cut with the matching die before coloring with a combination of Walnut Stain and Red Red Geranium inks.

Thanks so much for visiting. Have a wonderful day!

I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
