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! Caly
