Window and House

I'm in Christmas making mode. And that is a good thing, because I'm behind on my schedule of making 4-5 cards a month.
So there were two words that inspired by and led to this design - window and house.
I had a clean-up in my craft room, and I sorted all the already printed and colored images and die cut elements, and the house and branches were all read to be used.
The house was stamped on kraft, colored with a gel pen, and there's a stamped fence in there as well, hidden in between my die cut hills. The branches were treated with gesso and glitter. Then I die cut a window with a die from Marianne and a lamp post with a Memory Box one. I added embossing powder to the lamp post. I decided to go for a shaker design, adding two different glitters and some sequins.

This card is for:
Inkspirational - Windows
Christmas Cards All Year Round - House or Cottage
