ID: MC Aug/12 - Xmas Window - My Home card
size: 7"w x 5"h (easel card)

Created: Aug 3, 2012

I love this Memory Box small Madison Window die and the drop out pieces are fabulous... You can see the abstract background I made with them HERE.

I'm using a great Xmas sentiment stamp from Quietfire Design

I ran a piece of white cardstock through my machine using the Sixxix (Tim's Pine Trees) embossing folder, then ran it through again using the "Distressed Bricks" folder.  Sponged Distress "Broken China" in the trees and then touched it with a bit of "Pine Needles". For the bricks I used Barn Door, Aged Mahogany & then, Gathered Twigs.

Stamped the candles (Flourishes "Christmas Candles" set #172) with Versafine Black Onyx and colored with watercolor paints. Trimmed it down to fit within the window and adhered them together then onto the card.

Stamped the words (Just Rite alphabet stamp set) on the front with the black.

Die cut a large pine tree (Sizzix Tim's "Pine Tree"), sponged with the greens and brown from above, added white Puff Paint, adhered to card and adhered a bunch of little rhinestone stars.

Adhered it to a red backing.

Scored and folded my easel card, adhered my front layer. Die cut a mini Pine Tree (Sizzix Tim's Movers & Shapers) and colored it the same as the big tree. Added the puff paint, then adhered it to a little tab on the floor of the easel with a matching red part so it blends in.

Stamped the Xmas sentiment on white cardstock, then onto the same red cardstock, cut a couple slits for my ribbon to pass through and adhered to card, creating a flat type of bow and adding a faux buttons (Spellbinders very old die) which I colored with Distress yellows and clear embossed several times.
