Simple Stories and Maya Road

Dec 5, 2011

I hope you are ready for a fun blog hop this week. Sim­ple Sto­ries and Maya Road will be fea­tur­ing lots of awe­some projects for the hol­i­day sea­son all week using the Sim­ple Sto­ries 25 Days of Christ­mas line and loads of Maya Road prod­ucts.

Last night, I cre­at­ed a card that reminds me of a hol­i­day scene from the ear­ly 1900’s. A lady and gen­tle­man stand­ing in front of their Christ­mas tree look­ing out the win­dow as peo­ple pass by their home all dec­o­rat­ed for the sea­son or maybe watch­ing snowflakes as they gen­tly fall to the ground. Either way it is a mag­i­cal evening for them both.

The win­dow is attached to the front of the card using foam squares to give it a bit of dimen­sion. I attached the minia­ture hol­ly gar­land using a  hot glue gun. The plas­tic bow at the top of the gar­land is for a minia­ture tree. It was gold and I col­ored it using a Red Shim­mer Kry­lon pen. Each glit­tered wood­en snowflake is accent­ed with a small rhine­stone to give the card just a bit more hol­i­day sparkle.
