Clearly Besotted Cosy Christmas

The August Kit and Clowder Monthly Marker Tutorial is an enchanted garden and has the most adorable pumpkin house with a brick bay window. I have only just started the class and so am nowhere near ready to show you all yet However I decided I would practice the brick technique on this fireplace and I can not believe how well it turned out 

There is a video on my YouTube Channel showing how I made the card but because I often sit and watch TV while colouring there is not one of the fireplace technique. Mrs H's Crafty Corner

Card Making Tutorial

I begun by stamping and colouring my images, I die cut the ones I have dies for and fussy cut the rest

I cut a piece of white card using the Heffy doodle slimline die and blended it in tumbled glass distress oxide

The washing stamp stamps were stamped onto white card using milled lavender and tumbled glass distress oxide

These were glued onto kraft card and trimmed to give a very small border

These were glued onto the card base and the sentiment.heat embossed. See picture below for placement

The images were arranged on the card base and adhered with a.combination of double sided tape and foam squares

The scene was accessorised with a selection of nuvo drops and sequins

A piece of purple card was used with the scallop edged slimline die and the panel.was mounted onto.this before being mounted onto a slimline Kraft card base
