Zig Zag Village

Hi Everyone, my apologies for my posts far and wide apart, but I can't believe I'm so busy. Anyhow, I saw this Zig Zag Village . It features this beautiful folding Village by Marji Roy and I just had to have it.  You can get it Here or Here.

This is my version, cut on the Silhouette Cameo.
card - Crafters Companion Centura Pearl
red card - stash
wreaths - cut on the Cameo, coloured with
 Spectrum Noir Markers, then I clear heat embossed them to give shine.
The church windows were also coloured with the SN markers.
vellum was added behind each window and door.
 (there is another file where window features are included in the file, but I didn't see that until I had bought this, oh! well. I still love it though.)

The village is cut and able to be folded flat to be sent as a card, but as I have sent all my cards, I decided to make it as large as I could (9 inches tall) to have it as a decoration, it has wonderful dimension. I am thrilled silly with it and the reactions have been great with visitors too.

 I'll show you the lit versions first, with battery tealights. 
Sorry about the photo quality, I took it without flash at night.

a closer look

now here it is in the day, you can see the depth it has in the zigzag shape.
