Joy to the World ft. DRUMMER BOY w/Kelly

Hello Crafters! Can you believe Christmas is 3 days away?!

You'll be proud of me though, I knocked out my Christmas shopping. All of it. One weekend and about 6 coffees later I finished it.

Now wrapping is a whole different story...

For today's card I wanted to build a scene with the Drummer Boy set. It's one of my favorite sets. I just adore these sweet images!

Typically my go to is a one layer card, however, I really wanted to try the "star ray" night sky. Since I was trying it for the first time I knew it would be easier to just concentrate on the sky without out mixing in a ton of masking. Plus it gave me an excuse to use the Mountain Border Die :)

I combined Tim Holtz Distress Inks with Wplus9 Shimmer Spray and white acrylic paint for the sky. This gives a really pretty dimensional look. The hills were also colored with Distress Ink but I had to go in with a Copic marker to make the hills a bit darker.

If you'd like to see the card from start to finish you can check it out in the video below.

I don't always utilize those coordinating dies, but man, it sure makes arranging a scene super simple haha!

Thank you so much for joining me today! Whether you use masks or dies I hope you're inspired to try a scene on one of your cards soon.

  4. Oh your cards are beautiful this may help you with wrapping which I hate by the way did you take the height of the box and add 2 inches and then take that measurement and add it to the diagonal measurement of the box and that is the size of the squared paper you should have works great and then you wrap and a diagonal sorry I just learned it and it works awesome
