Joy to the World Pages

I LOVE the way these pages turned out but they took FOREVER to create! This stamp set and dies were in the holiday mini but they are still available. It's one of the few things Stampin' Up! has held over. Now, why did they take FOREVER? Well, each house or church has gold foil behind it so it looks like there are lights on in the buildings.

You can see that better on the single page pictures. To do this, I traced the outside of each building on the gold foil paper and then cut it out with my paper snips and glued it on the back, making sure there were no little pieces hanging out the sides of the houses.

It was putzy but I really like the way it turned out! Very striking! 

I did put some Wink of Stella on the hills. In real life, it looks like there is the glistening of the snow on the hills and trees around the houses.

What have you been working on that has taken more time than you would normally do?

Happy Stampin'!

Lovely pages Shelley! Yes, fussy cutting for the gold! Worth it though. I did a bridge card this way.
