I created a very large Christmas scene for my daughter. I sure hope this will brighten her holiday season as she has been hospitalized in Florida since the end of November. She is improving, but was not at a point where her medical team felt she could safely fly home to New York for Christmas. Her sister went down on December 24 so she wouldn't be alone. She'll leave for her home on the 30th or 31st.
So here goes - there are a lot of pictures so you can have a really good look at what I did.
I made an easel card adding an extension that folds up from both sides and then to the easel base. The top folds down like a normal easel card. It's much harder to explain than to just show the pictures.
This panel is on the right side.
Stamps used on this side are Winter Forest cut apart and decorated, Rufus, Wishful Chair, Santa Edwin and Post Bag of Love Letters - if you look closely you can see they are really letters to Santa!
Santa's hatband and cuffs are Fun Flock Cotton Ball White. The trees are decorated with Liquid Applique and Stickles.
The lamp post, bench and tree have Liquid Applique snow on them. All the figures have cotton ball "snow" at their feet. Edwin's hat was actually trimmed from a Tilda (?) and glued to his head. It really looks pretty cold to be outside with no hat!
The Christmas tree was decorated with brad candy canes, a star, round brads and some Stickles.
Now that you've read all of the above babbling, here is a picture of the whole scene.
I worked on this for 2 days just getting the figures where I wanted them and adding the final embellishments.
It probably took me another 3 or 4 days to color and cut out everything. I sure hope she likes this!!
Here you can see how I have the figures standing on the left side.
Here is the right side.
I hope you have enjoyed a journey to Tilda and Edwin's Christmas wonderland!
Thanks for stopping by and saying Hi!
