If you are just joining us today, be sure to visit Day One HERE and every day in between. We love our sponsors and with all these prizes, you will sure see why! Before we announce today's prizes, design team member Emily Pitts joins us to share a sweet holiday card!
"This card was a joy to put together! I knew I wanted to create a little mountain scene with these cute acrylic houses from Cocoa Daisy's December kit, Monterey Bay. The idea versus the execution was not as easy as I'd hoped, but I eventually made it work. I started by adding some modeling paste to the roof of each house. That was trickier than I thought, but trial and error got me to this point.
Next, I hand cut some hills from white dotted swiss paper, then added sewing lines to the top edge each one. I then attached them to my background and popped the top two layers with dimensional adhesive so as to give my scene some depth. With the other end of my paint brush, I dotted snow through out the sky, mimicking the white paper. Using the paint brush this way gives you more control if you'd like small little circles.
I placed my houses and marked where the light garlands between them would go, and removed the houses so I could stitch on my sewing machine. I attached the houses and again with the other end of my paint brush, I added the red and green "lights" to my stitched lines.
For the sentiment, I mixed a machine cut title with chipboard letters, highlighting the dimension in the hills by tucking the "let" slightly behind the closest hill. I matted the scene on a red polka dot paper and attached it to my card base. To add just a little bit of sparkle, I sprinkled some sequins over the whole scene and decided I need to use sequins more often, they were the perfect finishing touch!" ~ Emily Pitts
