….or even one in rainbow colors 😉
No seriously! It has been a looooong time since we’ve had a white Christmas here in Denmark and I really long for the white gold. But so far all we have is grey, windy and chilly weather. Yuk 😦
So I have to escape to fantasy land to get my White Christmas. What luck that you can find just that at 3dcuts.com. Last Christmas I decorated my table with the cute little white houses but this year Marji Roy made a Hexagon Base to display the little winter town. I got my base at 3dcuts.com but all the little houses in the Silhouette Design Store. I do have to mention that the Skating Rink is not part of the Tea Light Village but one I found in the Silhouette Design Store (#102105) and I sized it down to match the houses.
So here it is:
The entire town is made from White AC Cardstock. I did spray the base and the roofs with some glitter but it’s hard to see in the pics.
My display is made for my dresser so I didn’t have to worry about the backside of it.
I also a string of fairy lights and I went with multicolored…..This was a great decision! Just look how pretty it is lit at night:
Now my little town has really come to life and my dream of a white and a rainbow colored Christmas has come true.
Here are some more pics of the lit town:
Thanks for joining me today – please remember to leave a little comment for me ❤
Hello – hope you’re having an amazing Tuesday today 🙂 Mine’s been pretty lazy so far but I guess soon I’ll have to go stretch the old bones and go for a walk.
Talking about bones….I was so inspired by Annita Kristine Schøtt Pedersen’s cute snowman on the SVG Attic Fanatics FB page yesterday, so I had to make one myself. I don’t know how the idea popped into my head, but I realized that I wanted to make him into Jack Skellington from “The Nightmare before Christmas”
He is made from the Spring Spiral Snowman from the JGW Made of Snow kit. All I had to alter was the face (found one in the Silhouette Design Store #156604), make the butterfly by welding two bats from the Silhouette Design Store (found here and here) and draw some white lines with a Sharpie.
I also cut some “hands” in white and added to the arms on both front and back and finally I made a button from the skeleton on the Mourner’s Hat from JGW Raven Quest.
I used AC Cardstock in Black and White along with AC POW Glitter paper in Charcoal and a tiny bit of black floss for the button.
Thanks for stopping by and remember to leave that little special comment for me to read 😉

….we all know this tune! You know – the Theme from Jaws! A fitting soundtrack for my tiny post today 😀
The other day when I posted the Acorn Shaker, Team Member Lee Cox mentioned her idea of making a shaker card from the latest collection by Bird – Jawsome but she didn’t have the time for it, so she gave the idea to me. Trying my best to honor her wicked idea, here is what I came up with:
I used the shark from the Shark Window Card and made it into a shaker card by adding 7 layers behind the front layer with the acetate. I removed the teeth on the back layers to give more room for shaking and made two front layers with teeth – one in red and one in white – to give the impression of bloody teeth. I also cut out tiny fish skeletons in white pearl paper and added a bit of red ink to make them look bloody 😀
The background paper I found in the Silhouette Design Store but any sea or wave paper could do.
The card is a freebie from the Card Bundles – the Pop-Up Slider Card from Card Bases. I added the green panels (they are actually the same olive green as the background) to give it a little extra and cut the text from red cardstock in a blood dripping font 😀
Finally I tied some red, white, grey and black raffia onto the slider (doesn’t show in the picture 😦 ) and added two small black pearls as eyes.
Here’s a little close-up:
Thanks for stopping by to witness the twisted and bloody mind of mine (and Lee Cox’s) and don’t forget to tell what you think of this bloody fish-eating shark card 😀
