What fun extras for the Houses set, right?

Have you ever seen a card that you just absolutely needed to try and recreate?  Well, that's what happened with this card.  I saw THIS CARD on Pinterest and I just loved it.  I didn't have any of the stamps but I did have some STAMPloration stamps and stencils that just happened to fit what I wanted.  Now, my card doesn't look exactly the same but that's the beauty of CASEing.  You make a design you like but you almost always end up making it your own in some way too.  :-)

Anyway, here's my card...

 

On a sage green piece of cardstock I sponged clear versamark on using the Holly Background stencil.  Then I embossed it in white.  I then sponged on some broken china and forest moss Distress ink.  I spritzed some water on it to blend the colours a bit.  Once it was dry I sponged on a bit of white ink.  I hand cut some snowy hills and attached them to my panel.  Next, I did some paper piecing with the house (Houses - The Bee's Knees) and trees (Houses Extras - The Bee's Knees).  The windows and door of the house were stamped on white paper then coloured with my Spectrum Noir markers and fussy cut and pieced on.  It was a bit fiddly but it looks good I think.  The tree trunks were coloured in with my markers as well.  I attached these to my panel and then stamped my sentiment (Sentiment Builder - Christmas & New Years) in black.  I'm quite pleased with the CASE. It's not my usual CAS style but I like to mix it up every once in a while. :-)
