Waiting on Santa - Scrapping Cottage

Hello Scrapping Cottage Friends!


I am getting so excited Christmas is almost here!  I look forward to spending time with my family.  My cards are almost done.  I have mailed most of them out already.  For the card today I combined one of our older dies with a new one and I love how it turned out!



Designer Steps:
 1.  Use an A2 white card base cut a slightly smaller piece of red and glue it to the card. Cut a piece of  DP slightly smaller then the red and glue it to the red.

2.  Cut a piece of green 1 1/2 x 4 then run it through the embossing machine for texture.  Glue it to the bottom of the DP
3.  Use DP and cut out the chair using the Puppy & Kitten on Chair die.  Shadow the chair using black ink
4.  Cut out the puppy using the Puppy & Kitten on Chair die.  I cut the pup out of light brown and dark brown card stock
5.  Using dark green and brown card stock cut out the tree with the Rustic Tree and Sign die
6.  Glue the tree flat to the card front and then pop up the chair with the pup
7.  Decorate the tree with rhinestones and add the sentiment layered on red

Cozy Christmas - Scrapping Cottage

Good Morning Scrapping Cottage Fans!

I am still cranking out my Christmas cards.  I make the cards mainly for family, close friends and especially the kids.  The one I am making today is going to a friend's little son!  He is just 2 which is the perfect age at Christmas.  He is just so excited about everything!!

Design Steps:
 1.  Cut all the piece out using the Cozy Fireplace Pets die.  I cut them out of the different colored card stocks seen above. Add shading with red, brown, dark green, and gray ink.  After shading assemble all of the pieces
 2.  Use an A2 white card base cut a slightly smaller piece of yellow card stock and cut a piece of yellow striped DP slightly smaller then the yellow card stock
 3.  Cut a piece of brown card stock 4 x 1 1/2.  Glue the striped DP to the yellow card stock and then add the brown to the bottom of the striped paper
 4.  Glue to the A2 white card base
 5.  Place the fireplace onto the card first and then add the rug with the little critters
6.  Stamp your sentiment and layer onto red card stock.  Glue to the upper center of the card as shown
