I'm taking a break from my Bugaboo Birthday Week cards today, but please scroll through the week's posts to visit the cards I have made and the wonderful games and challenges that are going on over at Catch the Bug! We'd be so honored to have you playing along with us this week to celebrate Bugaboo's 3rd Birthday! :0)
I recently purchased some Cottage Cutz dies; these are my first CC dies, ever and I fell in love with them when I saw a card that Kittie Kraft posted a while ago. The dies are Mountain Lodge and Trees & Rustic Sign. I have to say, I had a booger of a time with some of the tiny cut-puts on the Mountain Lodge die! I was 'losing my religion' for several hours, and through six different cut attempts! I did manage, though, and have put together this card for todays post:

There are tons and tons of layers on this. I used a stair fold card base, and lots of pop dots! I added some 3D Glittering Paint for my "snow" on the trees, roof, chimney, steps, and on the torn top of my snowy, crimped layers.
Here are some additional images, some different angles and close-ups. And, as always, clicking the image will enlarge it for better detail views. :0)
Here's a front view, at a higher angle than the first photo.
This view shows the card base folds, and you can see many of the layers from this view.
A close-up of the lodge and trees. The lodge die puts some pretty embossed details into the pieces: cobblestone for the chimney, lines for logs on the home, some pretty dimension on the trees.
I can only ream of a white winter this year, it seems. SC has had incredibly warm temperatures, so far (as have many areas in the country). The days of Michigan winters, where I grew up, are behind me, but I think that's okay: I can always make cards like this and not have to deal with the frigid temperatures that go along with the pretty snow. lol! It is nice to think that some day I will head to a mountain lodge to stay for my holidays, but for right now.....I'm happy right here. :0)
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you've enjoyed my card, and that you choose to browse some of my other posts! If you like my work, please follow me, and leave a comment with your website info so I can return the favor! :0)
