Holiday Card Series 2019 w/ Lawn Fawn - Happy Ho ho holidays - Magic Picture Changer Card

mardi 22 octobre 2019

Hello there,

A few weeks ago, I shared a Magic Picture Changer holiday card showing two cute kids, drinking hot chocolates and waiting for Santa by the fireplace. And while I was making it, I was thinking that it could be fun to create the outside their house.

This is what I tried to create with this new magic picture changer holiday card. I used a lot of supplies to make it, including the new Ho ho holidays stamp set and the Rooftop border die set by Lawn Fawn.

So I first started by cutting a piece of blue jay cardstock, I applied black soot distress ink on the edges to darken it a little bit and used the snowy backdrop die to create stars and snow on my blue jay panel. I also added some sparkles using the liquid stardust, and to add more magic to my night sky, I stuck my night sky panel on a piece of pixie dust cardstock and finally adhered it on a white panel.


Next I worked on my magic picture changer element. On a long bristol panel, I stamped the xmas tree using jet black ink, and on the short panel, I stamped the kids, their Christmas hats and the tree again. And then 
I colored the images using my alcohol markers. When it was done and to match my first card, I used a white posca pen to draw a bunch of dots on my panels. I also applied clear shimmer to the Christmas tree decorations, as well as some white highlights using a white gel pen.

I taped the magic picture changer dies to my panels, and sent them to my die cutting machine. I applied double sided tape on both sides of the long panel tabs, I folded those tabs, next I removed the back of the tape and folded the tabs again to definitely attach them.

I folded my long panel in half right on the score line the die creates, next I put the short panel inside it through the slit, and put each small flap into a small slit.

I pulled the tab to combine both panels, next I applied a lot of powder to help the mechanism work easily, I aligned the small panel between the tabs, removed the back of the tape, and finally I folded the long panel to close it and create a pocket.


Next I worked on the outside of the house. I cut a small frame using a die from the magic picture changer die set, as well as three roof borders out of chocolate bar cardstock and I applied a little bit of ground espresso distress ink on the edges to add some texture.

To create the wall, I cut several strips out of woodgrain cardstock measuring half an inch wide, and applied vintage photo and ground espresso distress inks on them to make them pop. Next I started to assemble the wall and roof. So first I adhered the magic picture changer pocket to my white panel 1cm under the night sky. Next I attached them all around the interactive window, making sure not to apply tape on the moving parts. When the wood planks were attached, I finished the wall by adhered the window frame. And I adhered the roof borders using foam squares and double sided tape.

To give a more festive look to my house I cut a string of light out of rainforest cardstock and decorated it using blue, gold and red glitter cardstocks. And I attached those lights on the roof using liquid glue. I also die cut a chimney that I colored using hickory smoke and black soot distress inks. And then I stuck it above the roof.


For the bottom of my card, I cut three snow borders, added chunky glitter on the top edges to get a cool and nice sparkly border and finally adhered these elements at the bottom of my panel using foam tape.

Next I stamped additional images on white cardstock using jet black ink, and colored them using my alcohol markers. I used the coordinating dies to cut them, and then I attached them on my panel.

To create my sentiment, I stamped the word Happy from the Mice on ice stamp set using jet black ink, and cut it using the coordinating die. I attached it at the top of my panel, and stamped the words Holidays on the top part of the chimney.

I also white heat embossed a speech bubble and the words Ho Ho Ho inside it, cut it using the coordinating die and stuck above Santa using translucent foam squares. And finally 
I cut the pull tab arrow element out of chili pepper cardstock and attached it at the end of the pull tab using double sided tape.
