From Our House to Yours!

Hello!  I am back today with another fun Christmas card!  A while back I had to order online some cardstock to match a color I was using in one of my classes, and so at the same time, I added to my cart a die I had seen around the pinterest boards.  I had not had a chance to use it yet, and really I wasn't thinking I was going to use it for Christmas, but again, I saw it on pinterest, this time for a Christmas idea, and I knew I had to use it!  Here is my card ... enjoy!

Go here to see the pinterest card, which became my inspiration for my card.   Unfortunately, there is not a proper link, so I am not sure who to give credit to.  Their card, of course, was too simple for my taste, but it gave me the great idea to not only color the houses and the trees, but to add "chunky" snow to them!  Here is a close-up ...

Cool, huh?  With a quicky glue pen, I did a layer of clear glitter, but then in my stash, I found this chunky glitter and so I added that too!  Do you see the house button?  It was on a set of buttons, mostly regular buttons, that matched this line of papers.  I couldn't resist getting it,as I knew it would just make the card!  Of course, only one of this house is in the set, but there was one more house button, and then there were 4 other snowflake type buttons.  Perfect, as I made 6 cards like this one!
What do you think?
