Best Year Holiday Card by Secrets To Stamping

Make My Monday has a new challenge starting today – “E(scape) It!” – we want to see a card you created with Create either a sea/land/countryside, river/ city scape. I was going to make a landscape card but then I remembered that I had these Hometown Greetings dies. It’s possible that I haven’t used them before and thought this was the perfect time to get them out. Then, all I had to do was stamp the wonderful sentiment from the Best Year stamp set – I just love this one!

Once you finish here, I hope you visit our Make My Monday Design Team gallery for some great inspiration and play along before the deadline of November 7th!

My secrets to making this Quiet Meadow project

  • Firstly, this A6 card started with Evening Evergreen cardstock, cut at 9″ x 6″ and scored at 4-1/2.”

Now, the FUN Part!

  • After that, the fun part was really cutting the white cardstock with the dies and layered them up with dimensionals.
  • Then, I colored the trees with Evening Evergreen, just to give the card a little color.
  • After that, I cut a little scrap of the Peaceful Place DSP and adhered it to Basic Black cardstock (4-1/8″ x 5-1/2″).
  • Then, I adhered the cityscape layers to the card base.
  • Finally, I stamped the sentiment onto white cardstock and cut it with the Basic Border die to give the impression of looking over a hill onto the village beyond it. The last little detail was adding just a few Metallic Pearls for a little bling.

I’m sharing my cards with these challenges:
