Hi Hollowers!

Today I am kicking off a fun new series, every Monday until he end of the year (at least) we will have Hedgehog Hollow-days Projects! Today I have a fun card I made recently when some friends from England were over.  We will soon be looking at some Hollow-een projects, then fall & thanksgiving, followed by Christmas and the Hollow-days! So many fun occasions coming up to craft for!

This card I made with a wonderful friend who asked if we could create in the evenings while the ‘boys’ watched their car films! Of course I was thrilled and it was so nice to create with someone.  We made a card for her in-laws.  Let’s take a peek and then I can tell you how we made it…

There are so many details in this card so I’m going to try to remember them all, that pull here tab you see at the bottom is a piece of masking tape.  We didn’t want the battery to go flat before Christmas so this little detail was important, then the press here is over the battery so it can contact with the wiring. The card lights up behind the stained glass of the church and behind the lamp post.  I trimmed out the lantern and added some vellum, plus I used dots of color to add a stained glass effect to the church and then added glossy accents…

The lantern is pretty cute too, with the vellum and some flicks of yellow copies so when the light shines through it gives a perfect glow…

The stamp sets are from my recent Lawn Fawn haul.  Look at the cute little houses that build the scene, the dies are also scene builders, I have it all linked up at the bottom of the post for you…

I love the birds, they are meant to be penguins but don’t even let the description confine you, we wanted robins and I think they came out perfectly!

Look at the pom noms on their hats, I used my snow marker for so great puffy details.  Plus I added the text (and. barcode) on their carol book cover!

The houses also have some great snowy details, I used some Nuvo drops for the snowy accents, glossy accents over the windows and everything is colored with Copies.

The blue snowy background was handcrafted too, I only has white glitter paper, so I used some blue distress ink on my barbers brush and added that cool tone, the white was too much but I love the blue hue.

The green background is Lawn Fawn Noble Fir card stock, I added some snowy tops to the hillside use white glitter paper, plus we added some extra special insert details, first of all a vellum leaf with this old poem stamp from SU.  The trees are from the Lawn Fawn Set, we heat embossed the gold baubles, the sentiment is embossed with ranger super fine black embossing powder.  The ribbon was from my stash.

Underneath the vellum we added a gold Merry Christmas, again an older SU stamp I still have (I hoard Holiday stamps and sentiments!)

I hope she was pleased how it came out, I really enjoyed crafting with her.  It’s so nice to share the creative experience with someone.  If you have a friend who doesn’t have a huge crafty stash then I encourage you to create a special Christmas card with them, I’m sure they will love it.  Trace normally knits and crochets but maybe I started a card making bug!?

Here is a supply list of everything I used…


Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you enjoyed this post, I wish I had a picture with the lights because they look amazing, I also love the pull here stamp set for these interactive cards.  Join me for more tutorials (and some hauls) later in the week!

Happy stamping!
