Merry Monday #142 - Houses

Hello friends.  The challenge this week over at Merry Monday is to use a house(s) on your Christmas card.  I pulled out an oldie but a goody from the Thomas Kinkade Series (TK - 508P) by Cornish Heritage Farms that I haven't used in a few years but totally love!  I finished it a few days ago, but was waiting for some natural sunlight to photograph it...it never came!  So anyway, I apologize in advance for the picture, but if I would have waited any longer for the sun, it would have been Spring! 



The flash on my camera is not kind when I use mirrored cardstock, but hopefully you can look beyond all the glare!  I used a cream colored card base, then added a layer of the gold mirror cardstock, and then an embossed layer with Blackberry Bliss cardstock and a holly embossing folder by The Paper Studio.  I stamped the snowy winter scene with Blackberry Bliss ink on cream colored cardstock and then layered again with the Blackberry Bliss cardstock and the gold mirrored cardstock.  A very simple card, but very elegant IRL!


You can get all the info you need to play along, and some great inspiration from the Design Team and other players all right here .

Thanks so much for stopping by...I love it when you do! :0)
