Stampin'up Holiday Home

The Night before Christmas


This is our version of the night before- no snow here- after all we live in the tropics.

I have matted a black card base with silver glimmer card.
All stamping is on natural white card. I used a circle as a mask for the moon and sponged the card front with night of navy ink, removed the mask and sponged the moon with honey ink, then spritzed the corner with slate ink. Santa's sleigh and reindeer are stamped in versamark and black embossed. The houses were stamped on the card in black stazon and again on to a second piece of card. The windows were sponged with honey ink, the houses with navy ink, and the bricks and tiles coloured with slate marker. These were then die cut. The trees are a Tim Holtz stamp and die.
 A star brad was placed in the top left, the sentiment stamped, and the panel attached to the card. The houses were added using dimensionals, the trees with glue dots. Coloured rhinestones are added for lights, and clear rhinestones form the Southern Cross and the Big Dipper.

The insert.
                                         I hope you enjoy this card. What is your night before like?

Till next time- keep happy
