Christmas Lodge

I am still on a roll with Christmas Cards, this one was made using the Christmas Lodge stamp set from your Holiday Mini.

            079

If you look closely I stamped the large tree in Old Olive and then with my markers dabbing here and there with Always Artichoke trying to give it a little more depth.  I think it worked.  The lodge was stamped using Early Espresso and the addition of Dazzling Diamonds on each roof top.  Using a 1/8” circle punch and then using a 1/4” circle punch on top of that gave me a very small wreath shaped image that I could attach a bow and use on the front door.  With snow on the roof, we had to add a couple snow flakes highlighted with more Dazzling Diamonds.

Here’s a little tip for you:  You can color your rhinestones with a red “sharpie” as I did on this card!

Bye everybody ~ take care and be safe in all that you do!

Absolutely beautiful!! TFS what you did with the tree ~ it definitely does give it depth! I didn't get this set but I'm thinking I'll have to reconsider. You did an amazing job with this one!!

I really like the way you attached the lodge as a separate piece over the tree and added the ribbon and snow flake - and that pine branch again! I could not order one yet but have myself registered for when it comes back...I hope-I hope-I hope! Beautiful card!!!
