Reindeer Baking

Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends!

I am so glad I have gotten a head start on my Christmas cards.  So that I can make each one of them special for the family member or friend.  The one I am making today is going to a friend that loves to bake.  I personally would rather bake then cook!  These little baking reindeer are just adorable!

Design Steps:

 1.  Using the Let's Bake Cookies die cut all of the pieces out in white card stock
 2.  Color and shade the pieces using your favorite markers
3.  Assemble the 3 reindeer and place dimension tape on the back of each of the reindeer
 4.  Use a white A2 card base cut a piece of red polka dot DP  4 x 5 1/4.  And then using the Double Stitched Rectangle die cut second from the largest cut out a piece of DP.
5.  Glue down the DP stitched rectangle then wrap white Ric Rack to the red DP on the top and bottom.  Then glue to the card base
6.  Arrange your little reindeer on the front of the card and add your sentiment

Winter Village

Good Morning Scrapping Cottage Friends!

The Design Team is continuing to show samples from the Part 2 Christmas release.  Today I selected the Winter Village die to create with.  This die is just loaded with trees and little buildings super fun to work with.
Design steps

 1.  Using the Winter Village die cut out all of the pieces in white card stock
 2.  Using the second to the largest Circle die and a piece of blue card stock cut to 5 1/4 x 4 1/8. Cut out the center of the card stock. Next cut out a slightly smaller piece of purple DP and use the largest circle die to cut out the center of the DP.  Glue the two pieces together
3.  On the circle that was cut out from the DP arrange the snow banks then glue to the back of the opening
4.  Start to arrange the village scene by tucking in the pieces behind the snow banks.  I lined the backs of the houses and church with light yellow card stock to give them a warm glow
5.  After your have finished arrange your pieces glue them down to the card.  Then glue the whole panel to a A2 white card base and your card is complete

O Come Let Us Adore Him

Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends

Our Part 2 of the the Christmas release has 34 new designs everything from Moose to Mangers!  So please take a moment and check out the collections.  I am using the manger scene for today's card.  The name of the die is Nativity w/Donkey.

Design Steps:

 1.  Start by using the Nativity w/Donkey die and cut out the pieces using light yellow, tan, brown, flesh, and grey card stock
 2.  Shade the pieces with your favorite markers.  I used Copics
 3. Using the largest of the Stitched Wide Rectangle Frame set cut out a frame from tan card stock. Set aside and next cut out a piece of white card stock that will tuck just behind the frame.  Using your Distress inks sponge the bottom of the white card stock with yellow and the top with a navy blue
 4.  Use an A2 tan card base and take a distress edging tool to rough up the sides and bottom.  Next use a brown distress ink to ink all the edges of the card.  Also use the brown distress ink to ink the sides of the frame
5.  Glue the yellow and blue white piece to the center of the tan card base.  Then use dimension tape to attach the frame.  Add the nativity scene, your sentiment and star button to the card and it is finished
