Less Is More – Little Wooden House In The Snow Christmas Card

This card measures 5ins x 5ins and uses a hand cut, Kraft card blank as its base.
Kraft House in the Snow Christmas CardAnd ……. following on from yesterday …….. I am finally happy with my Little House in the Snow card, in the end producing something very less is more.
The only colour I have used comes from a tiny scrap of red paper glued on the back of the house over the heart with some yellow behind the windows.
Start of a cardI decided to give up on all the mat and layering, instead just adding a strip of ripped edged, white card, placed approximately across the middle of the card blank, adding trails of translucent micro glitter across the snow once the house was in position, followed then by a scattering of tiny silver stars in the sky.Mini Wooden House Embellishment. House in the snow Christmas CardThe sentiment, again, was handwritten using a fine liner pen but this time mat and layered to define it a little more.
It may have taken a fair bit of fiddle farting, but I got there in the end
