On the Shelf
This card was inspired by Donna at ButterNut Design. Here is how I created mine:
For the shelf, cut a Very Vanilla, 1" x 5 1/8" and score one long side at 1/4" to create the "edge". Using a dauber, sponge Soft Suede all over this piece. Place it temporarily to the middle of a black 3"x 5 1/8". Place a mask to the top of the shelf with another piece of cardstock. I used the very vanilla mat cut at 3 1/8" x 5 1/4". Stamp the Doily with white craft or versamark ink. Remove the mask and emboss the card with white embossing powder. There will be a bit of a gap between the bottom of the shelf and the bottom portion on doily. Lift the shelf strip and attach with permanent adhesive to line up with the doily, losing the gap. Color the house image from Christmas Lodge with watercolor pencils and blender pens. Roughly cut it our and attach to the shelf. This mats onto the Very Vanilla that you used for a mask ( make sure the stamped side is to the back). Then mat this to a 3 1/4" x 5 3/8" piece of black and add this to the base card of Very Vanilla. Add some Dazzling Details to the house for the snow look and a sentiment.
This is a great look so I hope you give this one a try!
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!!!
