One of the things that I really like about the Trimming the Town Suite is how versatile it is. The houses can be stamped on colored cardstock or on white cardstock and then colored. They can be layered onto a single piece of paper by using masks or they can be die cut with the matching Home Together Die set and then used separately or layered.
For this design, I wanted to create a card that didn’t require coloring. Some of my customers hate coloring. (I love to color) So I started out with colored cardstock, stamped the house images and then die cut them. I used a Stampin’ Chalk Marker to make the windows white, yes, it is technically coloring but as you can see by looking closely at the card, I didn’t get carried away with precision. A couple swipes of the marker for each window and done.
The tree design from the Trimming the Town DSP makes a great background for this cozy cabin scene and two pieces of whisper white paper cut with the snow pile swoosh die, created some cool piles of snow around the cabins. The little cabin in the background is tucked behind the snow piles. The bare branched tree is stamped and die cut and then adhered to the card. If you needed to add bling, 3 rhinestone jewels would go nicely to the right of the greeting, but I wanted to leave this card plain.
Okay, I did color the house that I added to the inside of the card. Totally not necessary if you don’t like coloring.
