There’s nothing better than decorating our house for the holidays. It’s Bobbi Lemanski here and my family goes all out for the holidays. We put up four holiday trees and each one has a theme. We fill the couch with festive pillows and add holiday décor everywhere. It should be no surprise that I had fun decorating this card’s 5″ X 7″ interior space, too. Today’s card features the new Sunny Studio Stamps, Cozy Christmas stamps and dies.
My card is one of those unsuspecting cards where the outside is simple and clean and the inside is full of festive fun. I used the chair, pillow, table, lamp, picture and cat on the front, grounding all the elements with a simple gray, oval shadow at the bottom. I stamped the phrase, “Be comfy and cozy” right below the sweet vignette to finish the front.
Inside the card, I created a holiday indoor scene using the furniture, holiday tree, presents, and animals from the set. I love the look of buffalo plaid in the wintertime so I colored this rustic plaid design on the couch and chair and added red pillows to dress them up.
To create the interior scene, I used a pattern paper for a wallpapered wall background. It’s a simple stripe from the Subtle Grey Tones 6″ X 6″ paper pack. Because the pattern paper is only 6″ wide, I added a 1/2″ strip on both sides to cover the full 7″ card width. I wanted it to look like a warm and cozy cabin inside so I colored the strips to look like natural stone pillars. I also created a warm-toned wood floor for the scene. I used the following Copic Sketch Marker colors:
- Wood floor: E57, E55, E43 and E42 Copic Sketch Markers and a black fine-tip marker
- Stone pillars: YR30, C7, C5, C3, C1, W7, W5, W3, W1, T3, T1 and 100
- Buffalo Plaid furniture and lamp: 100, C7, C5, C3, C1
- Wood furniture/picture: E59, E57, E55, R29
- Christmas tree: YG67, YG63, YG17, YG03, YG00
- Presents: R89, R29, R14, YG67, YG03
- Kitty and Bears: E55, E53, E50, R89, R29, R14, YG17, YG03
To finish the interior space, I added a red rug to ground the furniture and warm up the floor. I also made a wreath for the wall. To make the wreath I used the Autumn Tree dies and cut the tiny leaves from green cardstock and glued them on the wall in a circular shape. I hand colored in some red berries and hand drew a string bow for the wreath, too. The room is now warm, cozy and decorated for Christmas!
