We are so excited to have a wonderfully talented Guest Designer join us for this challenge! Help us welcome, Jane! She shares her amazing creativity on Instagram as papercraft4fun!

Jane combined the Reveal Wheel with Build-A-House and the Christmas Add-On to make a brilliant tree house! The woodland owls, birds and squirrels are joining forces to deck it out for the holidays!

Woodgrain cardstock is a perfect idea for the “tree trunk”, door and windows. The bright colored Christmas lights and Chunky Glitter add a fun festive look to Jane‘s wonderful interactive holiday card!

Joyce‘s charming card shows that any critter can be a holiday critter! She added a Santa hat to our cute chameleon and he’s ready to star in her beautiful clean and simple design! The pretty greeting is from Toboggan Together.

Karin‘s beautifully framed little scene features the penguins from Here We Go A-Waddling!

The Beary Happy Holidays bears are very happy critters in Samantha‘s adorable card design! They are using great teamwork to decorate the tree with golden fish! Happy Holidays Line Border and Mini Snowflakes add lots of sparkle die cut from Pixie Dust cardstock!

Christy‘s coloring gives the cute Snow Cool critters a sweet vintage style! They are a great addition to the Snow Day Remix scene in the background!

Jessica‘s cute aquatic critters are celebrating on the shore and in the water! I love how she combined Christmas Fishes with Here We Go A-Waddling!

Franci‘s cute hedgies are trimming the Christmas Dreams tree wearing cute Santa hats from Baaah Humbug! She combined the greeting from Hedgehugs with colorful Offset Sayings: Christmas!

Samantha‘s whimsical scene brings new meaning to the term “reindeer games”! The Toboggan Together deer have set up their Screen Time games among the Critters in the Forest trees! I would say these are some very happy little holiday critters!

The Mice on Ice are always happy to be skating together! Caly‘s Shadow Box Card uses the Mountain Add-On to create a fun Winter wonderland for them!

Caly’s Adorable Build-A-House Card

Hi Friends! This is Caly and I’m sharing a card for our current challenge (#65) – Fun with Dies! I’ve combined several dies for my card today to create a Build-A-House Christmas Reveal Wheel card.

The background of my card today uses the Snow Day Remix Petite Paper Pack. I love the little bunnies and trees on this card. I could cover them up with my house, so what I didn’t use from my page, I fussy cut so I could add to my snowy scene.

I die-cut all of my elements in white and colored cardstock before assembling. The Reveal Wheel is die-cut from the Snow Day Remix paper. I placed my die over the area I wanted to use and traced with a pencil before ink-blended around the top with Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide ink to give it more shading before die-cutting. I did this before instead of after to prevent the harsh edges from ink-blending. I also die-cut the Reveal Wheel Build-A-House Add-On in this step to create the window as well.

Next, I die-cut my Build-A-House and Christmas Add-On elements. I was inspired by my own house colors for this card – light gray with dark window frames and white trim. The Christmas lights are die-cut in white and colored with Copic markers. I also stamped images from Tiny Christmas for my reveal wheel mechanism and the Christmas tree in the lower window of the house using a stamp from the Yeti or Not stamp set.
Copic markers: Browns: E51, E31, E35, E37, E04; Blues: B01, B16, B18; Reds: RV11, R22, R27; Greens: G21, G24, G28; Yellows: Y000, Y08; Gray: C6

After adhering everything to my card and constructing the reveal wheel mechanism, I stamped my sentiments and added foam adhesive to my top panel before sealing the reveal wheel in place. To give my card a bit more interest, I embellished my light bulbs and wreath with some Star Dust Stickles, then added white gel high-lights on my house and added more snowfall to my scene.

I hope you enjoyed this card! Don’t forget the Fun with Dies challenge ends this Sunday, December 1st at 11:59 ET. There’s lots of time to play along so I hope you’re inspired to create!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
