Shaped Christmas House

A warm welcome and thank you for coming by to visit my blog and a big thanks to you if you have the time to leave a comment and/or join as a follower.  Please let me know you stopped by, so I can be sure and return the favor. 

I saw a card like this on pinterest and can not find the original person who created it.

First I would like to say I really have no idea why the gorilla glue and clear rock candy glitter had some kind of chemical reaction and the snow dried puffy.  I purchased the gorilla glue because they say it dries white which is what I wanted.  Oh well.

I first took white card stock and used a sponge to apply the vintage photo ink and stamped all over the sheet.  Then I cut a 2" wide 5" long strip to create the piece the door is sitting on. I die cut the door, used the impression obsession window/door in the center and then glued a piece of paper to the back and glued the window/door in the center.  I die cut three more of the  impression obsession window/doors for a little dimension and attached to the door.  I hand cut the roof shape and cut the Halloween Roof apart, trimmed off the web and attached. On the back I added mounting tape.  

I cut another piece of the stamped paper 4" X 4"  attached added the Madison House roof and the  chimney off to the right.   Next I attached the door piece and after die cutting and gluing several impression obsession window/doors glued them together and added the doily punch for curtains.    I added mounting tape to the back of fir trees.  I attached a plain white card stock shaped like the house to the back so the card does stand upright.  It does not make a big card but it was fun to create.
