Hearts Come Home, Seasonal Chums, Christmas Card

Today's card was a fun and quick one.  Though I'm not so fond of using markers on the rubber stamps anymore when I can just set it up on the Stamperatus and work on it from there.  I wanted my ink a bit darker on the house and if I had use the Stamperaus I would have gotten what I was looking for.  But what I ended up with is fine too.  I found this card on Pinterest.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Poppy Parade card stock. On top of that is a 4-1/8" x 5-3/8" piece of Whisper White that I textured using the "Softly Falling" embossing folder.

I die cut a medium size Poppy Parade scalloped circle and I die cut the second largest stitched circle.

I stamped the house first. It's from the "Hearts Come Home" set. I thought I would use that set a bit more because I'm pretty sure it's going to retire. I had used the Poppy Parade marker and a Smoky Slate marker to color in the house and roof.  I stamped the roof again and fussy cut it out.  I set the roof in place using Dimensionals and the more I look at it, I am thinking it's just sticking out too much and looks SO out of place.

The trees are from the same set and I stamped them using Old Olive on the larger ones and Pear Pizzazz on the smaller ones.  

The words are from the "Seasonal Chums" set (that will probably be retiring soon too).  I stamped them using Smoky Slate ink.

I taped the circles together and taped them to the Whisper White piece. The Whisper White piece was taped to the card base.  I added a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of  Whisper White to the inside of the card and it was done.

It's a very quick card to make and I'd like it much better if the roof wasn't set in place with Dimensionals!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,

I think your card is very sweet. I don't mind the roof being on dimensionals, but if it really bothers you the next time you might just make 2or 3 roofs and glue them together and that would be enough to lift it slightly -- just enough to set it apart from the main house.
