All Is Calm, All Is Bright

7/15/22 Top 5 at QKR Stampede!

Hey everybody, Happy Friday! Hope you had a terrific week! Our new challenge is live this morning over at Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for MLCCB #45 – Anything Christmas Goes! You know how I love me some fun folds… so I created this pretty open box card for our challenge this time using the Concord & 9th Stacks Base dies along with the Concord & 9th Home for the Holidays stamps and dies! This scene is so much fun to create – this isn’t the first time I’ve used these stamps and dies, and it surely won’t be the last!

I die cut the base from CutCardStock Basis Blue and Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock, added tiny white dots using a Posca White paint pen, and assembled the base. I cut the remaining elements from Neenah Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and CutCardStock Dolphin, Bonsai, Basis Red, Curious Metallic Night, Royal Sundance Linen Emerald, Royal Sundance Linen Burgundy, Curious Metallic Aloe, Stardream Metallic Aquamarine, Curious Metallic Pink Quartz, Basis Teal, Basis Aqua, and Shadow Gray cardstock, and then assembled the houses. I added a few tiny iridescent gemstones to the background and then created the scene. The final touch was stamping the sentiment in Catherine Pooler Suede Shoes ink on the white banner, layering it on the blue banner, and adhering it to the front of the card.

Here’s an angled shot.

And one more peek… love the fact that box cards fold flat for mailing! I really love how this one turned out!

I'm definitely what one could consider a crafting junkie! I love making cards, 3-D projects (especially paper shoes, mini albums and gift bags), mixed media projects, altering items, as well as occasional beading and making jewelry! Fortunately, hubby is very supportive! Life is good! :D
