I made this boxed set of cards for the Paper Crafts Christmas Tree this year.  The colors of the items on the trees will be brown, red and green.  I wanted the box to look like a house, so I made this “roof topper’ for the box.  Using the background of First Fruits, I stamped the “shingles” and added some glitter at tht top for snow.  There is a ribbon which runs up either side of the roofline with a large loop to hang on tree.  The houses on the cards took a while to do, but the rest of the card I made very simple by using the Polka Dot Basics set in white chalk ink for the snow.  I stopped just before the bottom to make it look like it was snowing and added swipes of the chalk ink to the bottom of the card to make it look snow swept.  I used vellum and stickes for the snow on the house.  On the inside the sentiment stamped reads “There’s no place like home for the holidays”  You can see this Christmas addition to “Boards and Beams” HERE.  Have a great day, and don’t forget to come back tomorrow for the Stamp Simply Challenge!
