Christmas Town

I had to join in on the Scrapy Land Challenge again and work with some of the many brands of dies they sell on their site. The challenge was to use dies and either dry or heat embossing. I went with the dry embossing.

I used the Cuttlebug Winter House embossing folder on white card stock and with Bic Mark-It Ultra Fine markers I colored in the design. I then cut that panel out with a Memory Box Frame Die and layered it onto a panel of Christmas Pine card stock which was also cut with the same frame die but in a larger size. I placed this onto the lower right corner of my Cherry Red card base.

Next I took another Memory Box Die and cut the snowy borders with white card stock to add to the red card. After they were  added I then added some white pearls to the design and also added a green ribbon bow. The sentiment which I used is from the Gina K. Designs Winter Blocks stamp set which is illustrated by Tami Mayberry.

Memory Box Dies:
Frosty Border Style No. 98171
Cross Stitched Frame Borders Style. No. 99124

I thought this might be how Santa's home might look at the North Pole so that was why I named it Christmas Town.

Well, it sounds as if rain is in the forecast. I am thankful we have the corn all combined now and if it rains we can just sit back and rest. We need the rain too!

God bless,
