Happy new week crafty friends! It’s Keiko from Happy Tree Studio and I have this winter house shaped card to share with you. Apart from the heat embossed sentiments, this is all die cut card so it’s pretty easy to put together once you die cut all the components!
I used the original House Builder die set together with two add-on sets to create this card but you could easily make a similar card with just with the House Builder die set alone. You just need to go through your die (or stamp!) collection and find the items you want to use that work scale wise.
Here are the list of dies I used:
House Builder: house base, hinge (to make a card base), door and trims, windows, curtains, bushes, greenery
Gingerbread House Add On: roof, chimney, trees, wreath, bows, shutters, snow (for the roof and chimney)
Toy Store Add On: bell, garland
I first die cut the house base twice from white card stock and adhered them together with the hinge piece (die cut from cute pink pattern paper) to make a card base. I then die cut all the components from various card stocks including some glitter/foil paper and white fluffy textured card stock (for the snow pieces) I found in my stash. TIP: I die cut the backing piece for the windows from white card stock and colored them with few shades of yellow Copic markers to make them look like the lit windows.
The sentiments are from Bitty Buzzwords: Fall set and I heat embossed them on the roof piece using white puff embossing powder. I love how the heat embossed texts look almost like snow! TIP: I used the roof with embossed texture so I double stamped these sentiments using my Misti to make them stand out.
After putting together all the die cut parts, I decided to add some snow by splatter some white paint with small paint brush all over the project. I was little nervous to do this step, but love how it turned out!
For the final detail, I added some Cupcake Rhinestones to the trees and tiny pearls to the wreath. I also cut out cloud like shape from velum and added to the chimney so it looked like smoke coming out of it (you can use a cloud die for this!).
Thank you so much for stopping by today. Have a wonderful week!
