Merry Monday Houses

The current Merry Mondays challenge is 'Houses'.  I was struggling to find a house until I found this paper in my snippets drawer - it had been an A4 sheet and I'd used rest of the paper but had tucked this away 'to be used one day'.  As the paper, vellum and gems are from my snippets drawer I'm paying another visit to Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk 
Sentiment:  Hot off the Press (magazine freebie)
Die: Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Four
Punch: Woodware snowflake punch
Card: Grey mirri
Other: Wink of Stella
Snippets: Paper, vellum and gems

I layered the house paper onto grey mirri card and attached it to the card front.  The sentiment was stamped onto a snippet of snowflake paper and die cut.  I drew around the same die onto grey mirri to cut a mat to fit behind the sentiment, this was then attached to the card with foam pads.   I punched two snowflakes from white vellum and attached them to the sentiment, before adding a Wink of Stella and a grey gem to the centre of each snowflake.  To finish I added a Wink of Stella to the tree and foliage around the house.

Really beautiful card Kath! I do so love that trick of drawing round the die for a slightly larger mat, they look much more elegant :)
