Christmas Card #12

Its a card, its an ornament, its a house.  LOL.  I was making some ornaments from the Christmas Solutions cartridge.  I thought this house would be cute on a card that will read "From Our House to Yours"...
I cut the card from green card stock 4.25 x 11 inches.  I used two sheets of designer paper from the DCWV Christmas stack (last year's).  One is craft colored and the other is red and tan striped, They are cut at 5.25 by 4 1/8 inches and 5 by 4 inches.  I cut the house blackout in black at 4 inches.  Then the house in tan card stock at 4 inches.  The roof and snow were cut at 4 inches also.  I glued the snow and roof to the house, then placed a piece of yellow card stock behind the house (for the window light) before I glued it to the black base.  Then using a red marker I colored around the windows, door, and chimneys.  I used a layer of glossy accents covered with white glitter for the snow.  I punched a hole through all layers and tied a white ribbon to use as a hanger.  The house is removable to use as a decoration if desired.  The snowflake ribbon used for an accent on the front and inside of the card is from Hobby Lobby.  I think I will include these in my food gift baskets this year.
Thanks for stopping by. Sue
