Sorry, no photo of the snippets I used - which are the plain white card for the scalloped layer and the 'Night Sky' backing paper.
- 5.5" x 4.25" white card blank, side opening
- snippet of white card, die cut using the largest die from the Taylored Expressions'Petite Scallop Rectangle Stacklets' set of dies
- then die cut the cabin into the scalloped layer, using a Memory Box 'Cabin Collage' die
- used a snippet of 'Night Sky' scrapbook paper which was tucked in the back of a book of papers bought ages ago which is so useful for 'space' themed cards as well as night skies - no manufacturer's name on it though. Just drew round the portion I wanted to use so that a 'star' appeared in the top left portion of the 'sky'
- then cut it out using scissors and glued it behind the image using a couple of glue pens (needed a very fine nib for some of the cabin detail)
- for the sentiment I used a stamp from Colarado Craft Company's Anita Jeram 'Merry Little Christmas' stamp set and a Memento 'Paris Dusk' small ink pad. I went right through my ink pad swatches before stumbling on such a perfect colour match - squeal!
- glued the image panel to the front of the card blank
- final touch was a tiny, very flat, silver sparkly 'gem', in the middle of the main star
And I made four of them the same - trying to really build up my stock of cards for this coming Christmas don'tcha know. 😉
I'd like to add this card into Darnell's NBUS Challenge #52 HERE. The Memory Box die was my NBUS this time.
We now have our second 'Christmas in July' Challenge, run by Sarn, over in the Snippets Playground HERE - with a lovely prize made up of several goodies. Including, a Memory Box 'Snowy Cabin' die just like the one I used HERE. And no doubt 'someone' will be dispensing Christmas Cocktails liberally in the tree house.
Dudley Pupdate: we celebrated Dudley's 5th Birthday on Saturday (yesterday). This is how tiny he was the very first time we met him, back in 2018:
He's cupped in Len's hands and we were almost scared to handle him as he was such a little guy. Smallest in the litter, a bit bullied by his siblings and he stole our hearts straight away. He seemed to have such a direct gaze as if he was the one doing the weighing up!
And, this was him with Len, just the other week in our back garden. Looking at the two photos, it's quite striking how he still has a lot of his puppy like facial expression. Although he's certainly a bit too big to cup in one's hands!
Love from Dudley - and of course me,
