Festive Holiday Home

This Home for the Holidays add on set from Papertrey Ink sure is a lot of work, but soooooo worth it! I really didn't think I'd use it much, but when the end result looks so good...I just have to! Lots of cutting out tiny fences, windows, and the snowman, but I just wouldn't be able to get this effect from a one dimensional house image.

The cutting was the hardest part though, coloring it all is the fun part. After it was all colored in I simply used vanilla scented embossing powder to put the icicles along the eaves of the roof. Perfect finishing touch! This set is a lot of fun, I highly recommend it.

Till later!
