Hello friends. Playing along with the challenge over at Merry Monday today, and this week we are being asked to use a church on our Christmas card. Perfect reason to use my new Tiny Town: Church Die from PTI! Take a look:
I stamped a piece of white cardstock with SU!'s Hardwood background stamp and Smokey Slate ink first, and then used the die to die cut the church...really wanted the church to have that old time look of a wooden clapboard building. I trimmed out the windows and door with white and then inlaid the pale yellow cardstock to mimic light coming from within the church. I used a small leaf stamp from PTI's Birds & Blooms stamp set to add greenery around the windows and doors with Mossy Meadow ink, and a few red dots for some berries. I used a Tim Holtz stencil to create the background with Stormy Sky distress ink. I added a seam binding bow and tag at the top to finish off my card. While this card doesn't really scream Christmas to me, I still really like how it turned out!
And while I had the dies out for the church, just had to actually make a 3D version:
Obviously didn't make this one Christmas-y, but I think I'm going to fill it will some jelly beans (that will make my windows look like stained glass, right??) and use for an Easter gift! :0)
Make sure you check out all the beautiful cards by the DT this week and then play along! You can find all the info you need right HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!! :0)
