Welcome to the September Lawn Fawn Inspiration Week!
Today the Lawn Fawn Design Team is showcasing the Simply Celebrate Winter stamps and coordinating dies, Simply Winter Sentiments, and Winter Scripty Sentiments stamp sets. I combined all three of these new sets for this small holiday scene strip card! I even pulled in some additional elements from last year's Winter Village Stamp Set and coordinating dies to round out my scene. I love that there's lots of white space on this colorful card!

Even with lots of white space on a card, a scene can pack a lot of punch! "Framing" up this scene strip with decorative edged die cut borders, adding sentiments below the scene, extending an element slightly above the top strip, and even adhering the top and bottom panels with foam adhesive all help to showcase a mini scene strip perfectly!
A background was die cut from smooth white cardstock using the Portrait Snowfall Backdrop and inked with Tumbled Glass and Salty Ocean Distress Inks. The die cut background was adhered to a white top fold card base, allowing the white from the card base to show through the die cut "falling snow".
Another panel of smooth white cardstock was trimmed into a 1 1/2" x 4 1/4" strip and another 2 1/2" x 4 1/4" strip. A Stitched Border die was used to create a decorative edge of both strips.
On the larger strip a sentiment from the Winter Scripty Sentiments stamp set was stamped right below the stitched border using Fish Tank Ink. An additional phrase from the Simply Winter Sentiments was stamped with Manatee Ink.
The two panels were adhered to the card base using foam adhesive to slightly pop them up and frame up the falling snow.
The village image from the Simply Celebrate Winter stamp set and the hearts, trees, and chimney smoke images from the Winter Village Stamp Set were stamped on smooth white cardstock with Jet Black Ink, colored in with Copic Markers, and die cut with the coordinating dies. The village, hearts, and smoke were popped up with foam adhesive and the trees were adhered with glue dots. The trees help to fill in the scene "edge to edge". I trimmed the excess.
The design was finished by adding Nuvo Crystal Drops in White Blizzard to the hearts, snowy rooftops, and the Snowfall Backdrop die cut holes. Glossy Accents was added to the windows and a black glaze pen was used to add detailing to the doorknobs on the houses.
