Elegant Christmas Advent Calendar
Hello Scrappy Tail Friends, Waleska Galindo here to share my Second Design Team post of the Month. I have been very busy with the new School year preparations, but here I am, and I'm super happy to play with some of my favorite Scrappy Tail's products.
For today's post, I used the Slimline Birdhouse Pop Up die , the German House add-on and the Advent Calendar Add-on to make a very easy but elegant advent calendar. I hope you like it!
To create this card, I started by die cutting all my of pieces from white and gold card stock. For the house, I always try to use a heavyweight card stock to make sure my card is nice and sturdy.
I cut 2 bird house panels from off-white card stock for the front and back of my card. I also cut one base panel from gold mirror card stock to go behind my advent doors. From one of my off-white bird house panels, I die cut the advent calendar add-on in the center. As you can see, it will cut the openings for your 24 doors!
Scrappy Tails has a full video tutorial on their Youtube channel explaining how to construct the advent calendar. You can even add little boxes behind your calendar doors to include a hidden surprise for your recipient everyday leading up to Christmas Eve!
I then started to assemble my Advent Calendar. I cut all of my numbers for each door from gold mirror card stock. These numbers are included in the Advent Calendar add-on. To adhere the numbers, I suggest you use glossy accents since they are very delicate.
I added a gold roof to the top of my house. This die comes in the German Christmas House add-on die set.
I adhered my gold backing panel behind the front of the house. When you open the little doors, you will see the gold and a single off-white snowflake. This snowflake is included in the advent calendar add-on. You can add anything you want inside. This die comes with many cute christmas icons to decorate the inside and outside of your calendars. Scrappy Tails also has two coordinating stamp sets if you prefer stamping little icons!
I love all the gold details on this card! as I told you before, you can personalize this advent calendar with the colors you want! I love the elegant look of the white and gold together, so that is why I chose these colors today!
I hope you have an amazing weekend! Scrappy Tails is having a Labor Day sale with everything marked down 20%! Happy shopping!
