Watercolor Holiday Scene for Pinkfresh Studio Holiday Cards Blog Hop Day Two + Giveaways

Hello, friends! I’m part of the Pinkfresh Studio Holiday Cards Blog Hop Day Two today! I created a watercolored holiday home scene with a night sky. Have you started on your holiday cards yet? You can find all the details for a special shop promo and giveaways below.

My card was SO fun to make! I used both Home for the Holidays + A Day in the City, along with the coordinating die Cityscape. I started by die-cuttung a watercolor sheet with Cityscape and stamped the row of homes from Home for the Holidays. I stamped the homes from both sets on a separate sheet. I stamped a bunch of the trees as well.

I stamped the banner and sentiment on black cardstock and heat-embossed in white. I fussy cut it and set it aside.

I worked on the background first by stamping the snowflakes with clear embossing ink and heat-embossing in white. Then I used watercolors to create a night sky. I added white + gold paint splatters.

I colored the homes and trees with watercolors. I fussy cut everything and arranged the scene together. I mounted some homes in the back to create a street scene. I mounted everything on my card base with foam tape.

Finally, I finished it off by gluing some chunky glitter to mimic snow/ice. I hope you loved this scene as much as I do! All products are linked below.
