Silent Night PCCC # 165

This week we have had a record heat wave already - 34 and then 36 degrees Celsius yesterday - the hottest two days in October since records began! There were even some bush fires but hopefully with the cool change that has come through they will have been brought under control. This Fire Season is here early as things are already tinder dry and the Summer is tipped to be a hot one.

And it is Wednesday so it's time for a new challenge at The Paper Craft Crew. This week we have a great sketch for you and the Team have created a great variety of projects to inspire you so I do hope you can take a moment to pop over and have a look.

Here is the sketch:

And here is my card :-)

The way the squares were placed in the sketch reminded me of a window pane and as I have yet to get the Window Framelit I used the Square Framelits to create my window.
The background uses the Emboss Resist Technique - first emboss the stars with Gold embossing powder and then sponge the sky colours onto the the white card. To create the lights in the houses I cut some vellum to fit behind each house and then coloured on the back with a Daffodil Delight marker :-)

Card stock: Island Indigo, Whisper White, Gold Glimmer, Vellum
Inks: Island Indigo, Pool Party, Versamark, Daffodil Delight (marker)
Stamps: Jingle All The Way
Accessories: Big Shot, Square Framelits, Star Framelits, Sleigh Ride Edgelits, Gently Falling EF, Gold EP, Gold Cording Trim, Triple Banner Punch

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you can take a moment to pop on over to The Paper Craft Crew and see the projects the Team have made to inspire you and I look forward to seeing what you will create with this sketch this week too!

Happy stamping until next time,
