A Country Christmas for TTS

This week at 'Tis The Season we have a color challenge....Kraft, Cherry, Gray and Red. I knew I wanted to do a card using the Holiday Home set from SU and my wheels began to turn.

I stamped the 3 house images in Memento Tuxedo Black on Cherry Cobbler, Basic Gray and Real Red. I used their coordinating dies to cut them out and then popped them up with dimensionals on the Crumb Cake card base. I took a strip of Basic Gray DSP, sponged the edges and then adhered that under the houses, kind of like a road. At this point I brought out some sentiments and asked my husband which one I should use. He looks at the card and says "what do the houses have to do with Christmas? DOH! I told him I wasn't done yet and to just humor me. I ended up going with this sentiment from the retired set Many Merry Messages. 

To finish off the card I stamped the Santa in his sleigh in basic gray going across the  sky and then I used my white gel pen to add falling snow. I then took the card back out to hubby and he goes "oh wow, that's an awesome Christmas scene". ROFL, men!

Make sure you head over to the 'Tis The Season blog to see what the rest of the design team came up with and then play along with us!
