From our House to Yours ...
This is a Christmas Card I made for my uncle. The inside reads "From our House to Yours, Happy Holidays." As the snowman is made with a Martha Stewart punch that I cut apart and embellished, I am entering the card in two challenges that require punches. The challenge at Paper Pretties and the one at Totally Paper Crafts.
The scalloped circle base of the card and the white inner circle were made with Nestabilities. I then used my piercer to create the border around the white circle and a Cuttlebug Embossing folder to add the pindots.
The house is from the Jolly Holidays Cricut Lite Cartridge. I added details like the curtains (I used the Martha Stewart Hydrangea punch and cut the flowers apart) and the door knob which were not on the cartridge. The patterned paper is from Stampin' UP and the chunky glitter I used to replicate snow is JoAnn Essentials. The little snowman is a Martha Stewart punch and I added the hat, buttons, arms and scarf to jazz him up a bit.
Our goal is to get some family photos taken tomorrow so hopefully I will have some new pictures to scrap next week of holiday happiness. Though with 4 kids under 8 there is a strong likelihood the photos could reveal holiday snarkiness as well. Any tips on how to get all four kids to smile with their eyes open at the same time?
Thanks for looking and have a great weekend!
