Christmas Lodge Snowy Roof

Card made with Core'dination paper and images from the Stampin'UP! stamp set: Christmas LodgeAre you "dreaming of a white Christmas"? If you celebrate the true meaning of Christmas, then it is special no matter where you live. But I live in Wisconsin, and for me Christmas just wouldn't be quite the same without snow. The Lodge image from a Set called Christmas Lodge is just perfect for creating the feeling of a White Christmas.

The lodge image was stamped in Staz-On ink, so the black wouldn't smear when the white was added.  The white is Stampin'UP!'s White Craft Ink added with a blender pen. I used the same ink sponged on the dry embossed snowflakes.

The paper used on the bottom half of the card adds a rustic look to the project. Core'dination paper is colored on the surfaces but has a light core that shows through when it is distressed.  It was distressed by putting it through the Big Shot Machine in the Wood Grain Embossing Folder.


The Snowflakes were dry embossed with the Northern Flurries embossing folder.  And there is a trick to how it was used on this card. Check the image to the right.  I needed to leave enough flat space to stamp the image, so the card was inserted only part-way into the embossing folder.

The whole card is rich with texture. And not just from the dry embossing, the ribbon and brad and raised sentiment add to the feel.

The sentiment - from a set called Teeny Tiny Wishes was punched out using the Word Window Punch and layered on a coordinating piece punched with the Modern Label Punch and raised up off the card using Stampin' Dimensionals.

Isn't this the perfect ribbon? The stitches actually look like snowflakes - they were just perfect for this scene!  The 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon (in Gumball Green) is used as a divider between the top and bottom of the card. And talk about rich texture - I love the gorgeous antique brad on the bow. These brads are one of my favorite embellishments.
