Winter Church In The Wildwood..

Good afternoon friends, followers and visitors, welcome to new follower Chris, thank you for joining me..

This card uses the New  Frantic Stamper Inc  "Winter Church In The Wildwood panel" die.
here at Oyster Stamps  ..

quite enjoyed making this, really different  this die.. 
I cut two panels for stability added bright yellow between the Church, looks like lights are on, all coloured with distress inks, next added dries white pva glue, with a sprinkle of glamour dust.
next I cut spellbinders grand labels  1..with matting basic make a frame..adhered the panel to this wrong side, cut a Decorative labels eight.. in blue, then by hand cut away the centre to make a frame adhered  as shown. 
This was the added to the largest  grand labels with foam tape..
(cut two) to make a top opener card.

think it makes it pop more not being flat on a card base.  love the cute rabbit & birds (I made Robins).

added decorations are Memory box.
