Newton’s Nook – Destination Christmas

Hey friends! I’m over on the Newton’s Nook blog today with my last post of the year for them. This year has flown by and been an absolute blast being a part of that team too! I hope you’ve enjoyed all the creations and found a little inspiration along the way.

For today’s card I pulled out the recently released Destination Christmas set and colored up a few of the cars with my copics. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and set them aside. I die cut the slimline frames and windows frame from white cardstock, then I used the snowfall roundabout and heat embossed it on the squares that came from the window panel. I inked them up with distress oxides in tumbled glass and blueprint sketch. Using my frame as a guide I adhered the squares down to a panel I die cut with the slimline frames and portholes scalloped rectangle.

I decided to make this a shaker card so I trimmed down a piece of acetate and adhered it to the back of the window frame and lined it with foam tape. I sprinkled some snow queen shaker bits from the Twiddler’s Nook shop and sealed it all up. Using liquid glue I adhered the cars down next and decided on a sentiment.

I cut out a banner from the banner trio set and stamped my sentiment on that. Then I trimmed the edge off and used liquid glue to adhere it down. Finally, I didn’t like the plain card base so I used the Trinity Stamps stripes stencil on a white card base and then popped my scalloped panel up with foam tape.

There’s a lot going on here so I kept finishing touches to just glossy accents to the package bows and accents on the cars like lights, wheels and door handles.

This card is so much fun and I had a blast putting it all together!

I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
