This shows the CRAZY snow we got here in Texas in late February this year. It was so much fun and we haven't seen snow like that here in over 20 years!!
The main page for this was in a paper pack by DCWV that I got at Michaels a long time ago, but I loved how the edges "frame" of the page is flocked and fuzzy! So first, I cut the house with my cricut - I think it was the Heritage cartridge. I used some chalk to darken the roof a little and backed the windows with pale yellow cardstock. I matted the picture with brown cardstock and glued it to the middle of the house. I didn't want to cover up any of the flocked frame on the paper, so I pulled out the craft knife and cut where I wanted the house to tuck into and glued it all down.
At the top of the page, I used a plain manilla tag and using the Distressed Ink in Old Paper, stamped a background image on it then took a journaling stamp and used memento cocoa ink to stamp it. I don't know about you, but the Old Paper Distressed Ink is just the best! I love how when you use it, the slight color difference is more significant than using watermark and it gives paper such a wonderful aged look without making it look too busy. The key was glued on there, and the wax seal is actually glue! I stamped an inital A into the hot glue while it was still warm.
Here you will see that I took a silver piece of satin fabric and glued it behind the chimney for "smoke". Then digging through my stash I found these old floor plan stickers. I slapped them down on some grey cardstock, distressed the edges and used some metal eyelets on the corners with a little bit of twine to run it through a jump ring. I slid the jump ring over some pretty brown sheer ribbon and once again cut the corner next to the flocked edge and tucked the ribbon behind it.
Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!
