A Holiday Home Christmas Card

Today I thought I would play with the "Holiday Home stamp set and dies.  I LOVE it that I didn't have to cut out the house but I did have to cut the snowman and the wreath.  The wreath was very tiny and more difficult to cut than the tiny snowman.  UGH!!! Those dies have spoiled me!!!

I found this card here at Glitter Thumbs blog.  

I think on the original the house was colored in with Blendabilities.  I didn't have that color group so I used Cherry Cobbler ink and a blender pen.

I drew the snow line in by hand and then set the house and the snowman in place using Dimensionals for the house and pieces of Dimensionals for the snowman.  And I used even tinier pieces of Dimensionals for the wreath.  

I stamped snowflakes all over the background and then I used Crystal Effects and glitter on them. I also glittered up the ground, the roof of the house, the top of the chimney, the top part of the snowman hat, and the right side of the bottom ball of the snowman.  I did not let it dry before I took the photo, so it may not look as sparkly as it does in real life!

This was a fun card to make and I did have fun playing with this set.  Now I'm off to give this set another try and hopefully I can be original with it!!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
