Holiday Yule Log Card

 Hola everyone! Merry Christmas! I popped in to share a card I created with the 1950s Hero Arts Television Fancy Die Set. 

When I first saw this set a few months ago, I immediately knew I wanted to use it for a Holiday Yule log card. Growing up in New York City, I remember on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, WPIX 11 aired a film loop of a burning Yule log accompanied by Christmas music. The show was about 2 hours long- without commercial interruption. 

To create my card, I die-cut the television 8 times using Chestnut cardstock and adhered them in a stack. This gives the television depth. With the scraps, I die-cut two logs and colored them with E29 Copic marker. I covered the antenna base with Bronze Metallic Ink. I used a heat tool to dry the metallic ink quickly. 

Next, I die-cut the flames 3 times in Cherry and Canary cardstock. I then adhered the Canary flames onto the Cherry flames, letting a bit of the Cherry cardstock show. KI then adhered the flames onto the logs.

With the scraps of Canary cardstock, I die-cut the fireplace log grate once and the antennas two times. I colored the grate with W9 Copic marker. I covered the antennas with Pewter Metallic Ink. I glued the antennas to the back of the antenna base. 

Next I embossed Sand Cardstock with the Tim Holtz "Bricked" Embossing folder. Once done, I lightly brushed over it with Wet Cement and Intense Black inks. I cut the cardstock to fit the television screen and adhered it to the back.  I then embossed a design onto Palm cardstock and cut it to 3 3/4" X 4 1/2" and matted it with Mustard cardstock. Turning a top-folding card base to landscape, I adhered the panel.  

I arranged the log grate, logs and flames onto the brick screen and adhered it to the card. I colored the knobs with Copic Markers. 

I stamped and adhered a sentiment from the Retro Christmas Messages Set to complete my card! 

Creating this Yule log cards brought back great Christmas memories. 

Thanks for taking a peek! Have a safe and happy Christmas!
