House of Cards: Add a Building and/or Color Inspiration


Happy New Year, friends!  It's time to start again at House of Cards, and this month we are asking you to add a building to your card or be inspired by our color scheme...


I decided I was inspired by both!  I did some fun sponging, water coloring, and layering of die cuts to create a winter scene.  Take a peek at my card...


I used some fun polka dot paper to create my "sky", then added a few snowflake sequins.  The mountains were sponged with dark brown ink to give a little bit of depth, and the buildings and trees were water colored.  I added some ribbon as an anchor--I LOVE that gingham!


I added a scallop border and some rhinestones below the scene to add texture and shine.  The sentiment I chose could work for Christmas or just a generic winter card!  


This card totally turned out differently than I originally planned, but I LOVE it!  I hope you think it's cute, too!  I'd love to hear your thoughts in the comments below! :)


Thanks so much for stopping by today, friends!  I hope you take a bit of time to come and play along with us at House of Cards.  Don't forget to stop by the other DT members' blogs for even MORE amazing inspiration--they always blow me away!  I'll be back later this month with more crafty posts!  Until then, HUGS and happy stamping, friends! :)
