Woodland Country Church

Hello Blogger friends! Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit with The Charmed Life Blog today. Hope you had a great weekend and found some time to be crafty. 

I had my cardmaking time on Friday. Then Saturday I spent doing household chores. We were having friends over on Sunday night, so I had a few things to get ready. Then I spent some time in the kitchen.

For me kitchen time is also craft time because I love to cook. I made a delicious pizza with pesto, chicken, spinach and tomatoes. We like my homemade ones better than anything we have bought from a pizza shop.   

Today for your viewing pleasure, I am featuring a Christmas card using the CottageCutz Woodland Country Church  and the Merry Christmas w/Snowflakes dies.  

So let's get started with some details of how I created this card. 

Design Steps:

I started with my card colors. These ones were selected for the color challenge #906 on Splitcoaststampers. We were to use real red, garden green and silver. Perfect colors for this church image. 

real red, silver, garden green

I cut the church image in the challenge colors plus some allowed neutral shades.  For the snow I used a white glitter paper for a little added sparkle. 
The Merry Christmas phrase is cut in real red cardstock. The image is large enough that I thought one layer would be enough. Sometimes I double them up, but it wasn't necessary with this die.
For my image panel I used the Stampin' Up "falling snow" embossing folder for added background interest.
Now that my card elements are prepared, I am ready to start card assembly. I attached the church image with double sided tape. For the larger tree, I used dimensional adhesive.

Next, I secured the Merry Christmas phrase with a clear drying glue.
To finish off my card, I attached the image panel to the card base. I kept the panels to just the base and image panel. That way the images would be the star of the show. To get the silver color in, I added these snowflake images from my stash and used a silver sequin in the middle.
 Real Red Card Base: 4 1/2" x 5 3/4"
White Image Panel: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
Well, that's it for me for this post. So Until next time.......God bless.
