I have something special for you today. To be honest on this project I worked for 5 days. Every day for at least 2 hours but it was worth it. I adore final result. I can not definitely call this a card although it has a look and function like a card. Measures are 25X15 cm.
Let’s look at what I was creating….
I wanted to create the front part of the house with a roof, on the roof I wanted to have Santa’s sled and deer, I wanted to have night sky behind. And in the end I wanted to have the opportunity to peek into the interior of the house. Complicated?? Yes, it is but I am sure but no one has done anything like that.
So let’s start from the beginning..
I stamped all images with Copic friendly black ink and colored my images with my Copics. After that I die cut everything with matching dies. I added highligts with white gel pen.
I applied Broken China, Faded Jeans and Black Soot for my night sky with mini ink blending tool and added some snow on the top with Copic Opaque White. I used Copic Opaque White for everything outside like roof, images, the front of the house, windows… On the top of the roof I added my images from Santa and Friends stamps set.
For the roof and for the chimney I made score lines with ScoreBuddy to remind of the rooffing tiles and bricks. I colored panels with copic markers and added snow with Copic Opaque white again. on the top of the roof and chimney I applied some Nuvo Deluxe Adhesive and Diamond dust on the top of the glue. I attached roof with Foam tape but the top of the roof have just two layers and the bootom of the roof have 5 layers.
For the front of the house I used Small Brick Wall stencil and applied Pumice Stone. After that I die cut two windows with Classic Window Die-namics from Neenah Soler White and I colored with Copics . I used acetate for glass and velum for curtains. I also mede small decorations for the windows using Filled with Joy and Perfect Poinsettia die-namics.
The panel opens with the help of magnetic sheets ( we use that sheets for storage). I cut two stripes and added on the back of the card base and one on the back of the flap.
And now.. Inside of the house with all these Beautiful images from BB Secret Santa stamps set. I just adore this stamps set!! My favorite for sure!!
The wallpaper and carpet I made with Kraft Collection Solid Stripes and Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots paper pack. For my Fireplace I stamped first Marble Background with Grout Gray Premium die ink and die cut all pieces with Fireplace Die-namics. For the wood in the fireplace I used Wood Weneer sheets. I attached my images with Score tape, Foam tape or some of them with Nuvo Deluxe Athesive.
I hope you like it!!
Until next time!
