Christmas House

I wasn't going to buy this set when I was looking through the new SU catalog. But my friend Danita was on a mission to convince me to get this, and she won. I am so glad she "forced" me to buy this now, because I love it! It is called To You and Yours, a set of 6, 111706, $18.95.

I used sketch TSSC31 for this card, and it worked beautifully. I now have people ordering this card from me, LOL!

I chose my colors based on the Holiday Treasures paper - Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, and Very Vanilla. The red is really supposed to be Ruby Red, but since I was using the new buttons from the Button Bouquet, I wanted to use Riding Red Hood cardstock to match up with the buttons. RRH really goes well with the Holiday Treasures paper too.

I stamped the house image with Chocolate Chip ink onto a Very Vanilla circle, and of course, I had to sponge a little bit of the same brown ink around the edges. That's just my thing....... :-) I used the same Chocolate Chip ink to stamp the sentiment on the Olive houndstooth paper (so yummy - love that paper). The red buttons were tied with Linen Thread and attached with glue dots. Simple, clean, and easy card to make.

Have you started on your Christmas cards yet??? Hint hint hint!!! Only 4 more months to go.............
