Merry Monday

It's my first Merry Monday challenge of the year - YAY!
The challenge is to create a Christmas card with a house(s).

I went online and found a free digital download from 
Beyond the Fringe that was perfect for this challenge. 

Besides the houses I decided to use the red and white
color theme in the picture. It was hard to not color in all of the
houses, but I like it.

It was a little plain for my tastes so I added texture with
some stitched frames and an embossing folder.  I finished it 
off with some cherry cobbler bakers twine and popped
everything up on dimensionals. 

I like how it turned out.

from Stampin' Up! unless noted
card stock: whisper white
stamp set: Good Greetings
ink: memento black
digi image: houses (beyond the fringe)
blendabilities: cherry cobbler
big shot: large and small stitched rectangle stackables (lawn fawn),
            decorative dots EF

Happy Stampin'

Your little houses are so cute!! I really like the red & white color combo too!
Cute card. Good thinking to use a digi image. I didn't have a house stamp either so I used a die.
