Christmas

 



Hey everyone!  Anne here from Anne-Made with a Christmas project to share with you.  Can you believe Christmas is next week!!! I'm not quite ready, so I'm rushing around getting all my last minute things together (like one more Christmas card 😆).

For this project, I used the following products:

Lawn Fawn: Shadow Box Card Fireplace Add-On (these would also work)
Spellbinders: Christmas Tree (any of these would work well)
Memory Box: Special Merry Christmas (many of these would work well)
Fairy Hugs: Stone Wall
Fairy Hugs Glitter Powder: Shamrock
Fairy Hugs Glitter Powder: Sunshine

Unfortunately, all of the specific dies I used for this card are now out of stock due to their popularity; however, I've linked many other options that would work as well.  I would suggest signing up for the newsletter and purchase the dies you like as soon as you see them available. 

To start off, I die cut every thing out of white cardstock and then proceeded to color the individual die cuts with either Distress Inks, Altenew inks, or Copic markers.




My card is a standard A2 size, so the front panel is 4" x 5.25".  I ran this through a Crafters Companion embossing folder (Stone Wall) to give a light amount of texture to the background.  Although it doesn't show up very well in the photo, you can see it quite well in person. 

Then I began coloring and assembling the individual pieces and adhered them to the front panel.

For the fireplace itself, I stamped the Fairy Hugs Stone Wall onto the die cut to give it the looks of stones.  I added dimensional strips behind the fireplace surround and mantel for added dimension.

I added Fairy Hugs Sunshine glitter powder to the star on the Christmas Tree die cut and added Nuvo Glitter Drops (Ruby Slipper) for my ornaments.

After die cutting the Merry Christmas sentiment, I added Fairy Hugs Shamrock glitter for added sparkle.

Here's one final look at today's project:
