12 Weeks of Christmas - Week 2

Hi everyone,

We are into Week 2 of our 12 Weeks of Christmas. Today we have the very talented Virginia Hampson showing us her amazing creation.

Take it away Virginia.

Week one was a wonderful Star Gift Box Stack by Leonie Schroder.
Who are the  Latte Girls? 
This week I have created a wonderful Card In a Box with a cute homey Christmas Village feel.  Although we don't get snow in Australia at Christmas, this is still a favourite scene on many Christmas cards.  This card folds flat to fit into a standard Australian C6 card envelope (114mm x 162mm)

I have used Basic Black A4 card stock, sheets of double sided patterned paper from our annual catalogue calledTypeset, the wonderful Holiday Home Polymer Stamp set, Very Vanilla card stock stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad and hand coloured the houses with Blendabilities.  For the gold stars I've used Glimmer Paper and some of them have been 'suspended' by gluing to strips of Window Sheets.   The Christmas trees are from the same Holiday Home stamp set, stamped in Mossy Meadow, the brown trees were double stamped in Baked Brown Sugar and Crumb Cake inks.  I've also added some accents on the trees by dabbing on Versamark ink and sprinkling Iridescent Ice Embossing powder and heat setting with a heat gun.


I even stamped in Crumb Cake ink on the envelope so it all matches.  Other supplies and tools used were White and Iridescent Ice embossing powder for the snowy hills, Versamark ink pad to get the embossing powder to stick, Dimensionals and scrap card for layering on the trees and houses, Tombow Multipurpose liquid glue, paper snips and paper trimmer and the cute star punch from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch pack.

This particular Card In A Box, though it folds down to fit into a C6 sized envelope, it's not a tall square one that has been popular online this year.  This one opens to a more squat box so that you can create your own scene.  The basics are the same as all Card In A Box instructions, just the dimensions of the brackets and where you cut and score are different.
