My project today is made with Dee’s Distinctively Small Winter Cottage, Small snow covered stacker tree & Border No 3 dies. I die cut the cottage once in tan cardstock and once in white glitter cardstock. I had some scrap Christmas cardstock so I cut pieces to create candy poles for trim and the door for the cottage. Then glued the glittered roof in place, added the chimney and using the Border No 3 die created the smoke rising from the chimney.
To create the trees I die cut one set in white and one set in green cardstock for each tree and then glued them in layers.
Using an E.K. Success Double Embossed Dotted Lace Scallop punch I created an edge from the brown cardstock to go underneath the house. The snow with die cut using the Papertrey In The Meadow Collection Edger set. The candies I punched with E.K. Success Paper Shaper ½” circle punch. Snowflakes are a small Marvy punch.
