Christmas House Cards

These cards measure 5.5ins x 5.5ins.
Hmmm, I made these cards way back in January and I am still not sure about them! I got the wooden window and door embellishments years ago but have never been that happy with any of the cards I have made with them and for me these  cards are just too busy.
Black Gingham Christmas House Card
I originally put the embellishments on a house shaped card, but they were far too heavy and the card wouldn’t stand up.  So I used the house shape as a template, drawing round it and then cutting it out in the gingham and craft card.  I think I need to tweak the idea yet again before I will be really happy with it and failing that, give up and pass the embellishments on to someone else for them to play with!
