Merry Christmas!

I've received so many compliments on a card I created I felt obligated to share my 'recipe'
So get out your pencils and paper and get ready to write, this could be difficult.....

Stampin' Up! 2" scallop punch for wreath in silver glitter, 1" circle punch for the inside.
Tiny hole punches for the holly's, with Stampin' Up red glitter
Base was cut at 5x3 3/4
Door was cut at 3x4, and then cut at 1 1/2"x1 1/2
Stamp your holiday greeting, add either a silver brad or embellishment for door knob, then add red bow to wreath.
Ok well, thats it! How super elegant is this?!


Ok, so I had these grand illusions of surprising our new neighbors with this miniature version of their new home, from the Winder Wonderland cart. Oooh myyy gooosh! Was it a royal pain in the arsh. With almost 2 house into this construction of cutting, scoring and gluing all these tiny pieces together I had enough of it!
Even though I designed it with the Fit To Page button, it was still very difficult to adhere all the tiny pieces together.
I reluctantly finished it, and not too overly pleased with it, I decided "How could I ever give something like this to our new neigbhors." "Come on now, after all I want them to think I perfect". Barbie is now ROTFL :)
But before I did, ROTFL, Barbiezilla came through, and well you can see what happen next.


So, if at first you don't succeed, ah screw all that nonsense and just scrap the whole project and go for something easier....
