From our home to yours

Happy Friday it’s Wendy bringing you the blog today. I hope you’ve had a wonderful week and are looking forward to a weekend of crafting with the new release. OMG I was so excited to see such beautiful designs and I have had fun with a few of the dies today

Today I have used the Slimline Hills as my background. I cut this a couple of times so that I could offset them to give a point of interest. The top layer was attached with 1mm foam pads. 

I then cut a small border from the ‘Clouds Slimline’ dies for the top of the card

Next I cut out the houses from the ‘Winter Houses 2’ set. I chose just one design so that the houses looked liked they belonged on the same street. I’ve used contrasting card and these are some of my favourite colours. I found it easy to attach a piece of yellow card to the whole of the back of the house otherwise it would have been fiddly. I used a pretty white glitter card for all the snowy elements on the card as it gives the card a lovely sparkle

I just love the ‘Winter House Accessories’ die set as you can add so many elements to your card without them overpowering the design. I picked the dog, the snowman, the largest tree and the little fence posts.

The bottom left of the card looked a little sparse so I added the ‘Christmas Car W/Trailer’ to finish it off. 

I really hope that you enjoyed this card today and has inspired you for some Christmas crafting. I think these little houses would look great on tags too so I’m going to pull that together for a project next week
