Papertrey Ink - November Blog Hop

The subject for this month's Blog Hop at Papertrey Ink could easily become addictive. How cute are these little paper houses - but they sure are time suckers! I went down to my crafting area about 3 hours ago and have only just finished this very simple attempt.
The card started as plain white colored with Spun sugar distress stain and then stamped with PTI Background basics: Christmas.
The windows are Soft stone cardstock treated with the clear embossing powder/glitter combo from last week's MIM with the window frame drawn in with a copic after embossing.

    1. Hi Terri, yes it is the template on the blog. The roof is easy - I used a scallop border die to cut lots of strips from grey card and stuck them onto the roof base starting at the bottom and working up. The "porch" is just a 1" by 1/2" box with the eaves cut out the same way as the template, stuck to the house.
