This months theme was Clean and Simple Christmas cards, because we know so often we need a last minute idea to make a special handmade card for someone! It has been a successful month packed full of CAS goodness. Todays card is from Dawn, and we love the simple snowy village scene that is giving us all Merry Christmas vibes. Follow along with Dawn as you gives us steps and photos to recreate this stunning Holiday Scene card.

  • When I get the snowy hills where I like them on my card I glue them down.
  • As you can see above I just pull up the bottom edge and glue.
  • Try not to glue the top edge down as you will want to slide your die cuts underneath. If you. do glue the top down it’s not the end of the world. Just cut your die cuts down to make them look like they a tucked underneath.

  • I used a sentiment from Laughing Snowman Set for this card.
  • Make sure you use your magnets to hold down your mat so you can center your sentiment and stamp it.
  • I use Versa Mark Black Onyx ink for all of my sentiments.

  • Now it’s time to add all of your die cuts.
  • Glue the bottom of the trees and tuck them under the snowy hills.
  • I glued the houses all the way down so that the windows don’t fall out.

  • So that the small evergreen trees look like there part of scene and not just glued down I added some shadow’s under them with C1 Copic marker.
  • Now add your mat onto a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch card base.
  • To get the card base. Cut a 8 1/2 x 11 inch piece of paper on the 11 inch side at 5 1/2 and that will give you 2 card bases.
  • Glue your mat onto the card base and your card is done!
  • This card is easy to replicate and can be massed produced.
