Cozy Christmas

cozy winter cottage scene

the caardvarks challenge is to create a new stamped card that is decorated inside and out!  i watercoloured this cozy penny black image, distressed the edges, added stickles to the rooftops, snow and tree, although it doesn’t show up well in the photo; and of course, i added my stickles snow.  the image is popped on foam tape to a layer of penny black paper, which is attached to a red silk type paper.

for the inside, i heat embossed the penny black sentiment and added punched MS holly borders which i just had to have after i saw jocelyn’s beautiful vintage ATC card.   thanks for popping by.

  1. Linda, this is gorgeous. I love that scene. Now that I’ve seen your card, I really want that stamp. Love the stickles and yes, I can see it. That PB dp is beautiful! And the inside is gorgeous, too. Love your new punch!

  2. This is so wonderful, Linda. It’s warm and so beauitfully crafted. I love those 2 rounded corners. They really make this card stand out. Beautiful work, my friend.

  3. Absolutely gorgeous Linda! LOVE how you did the ribbon and the rounded corners are just so perfect with the cottage. LOVE how you did the inside too – love the way you have the 2 rounded corners then the other square corners with the bling. (And, of course, I love that holly punching!). No wonder you bought the PB Sentiment stamp – it’s really lovely (I will add that one to my list……).

    P.S. Thanks again for linking my Vintage card with this post :-)

  4. It sure does look cozy Linda….very cute and what a fun challenge.
    Have a great weekend and keep cozy.
