Pholkart Blessings Christmas Card

Yesterday Patti Moore of Pholkart Blessings offered a free digi to anyone who joined her new FB group. I chose her 'Love Birds' digi and decided to combine it with another Pholkart Blessings digi of a little Christmas house. The house is so cute, I thought it would make an adorable shaped card.

First I glued the house to red cardstock; then cut around the right side of the image and scored along the left side of the house. The left side of the roof had no red behind it then. Oops. I cut a little piece of red cardstock and glued it behind the roof piece, trimming it around. Fixed.

I thought the Love Birds image would be charming nesting on the door wreath. I made four copies and built them one on top of the other to add some dimension. Remember paper tolling? That is basically the idea. I've started doing it recently and it's my new favorite technique.

La La Land's new challenge is Wish Upon a Star and we are asked to add stars to our projects. I just happened to have some lovely gold stars that I added to the window valances in my Christmas cottage.

I hope my little Christmas card brings you a smile and inspires you to create your own smile projects. Thanks for visiting my space in blogland. I am so glad you did.

Blessing hugs,

Oh, Teresa, this is just the cutest house! Love it! I would never have thought to make it into a card! The birds above the door is a great touch! (Regarding the chimney--there is always a way to fix a boo-boo!) And thank you so much for the sentiment! :^)
Hugs, Penny
