Hello at this busy Festive time, I have not had chance to craft recently and this little house and tree was made ages ago and has a distinctly Festive theme although the colours may not be traditional.
It is made from chipboard, cut to size and covered with decorative papers.The cutouts were made using TH Sizzix movers and shapers which are very versatile dies. All panels were stuck together with Tacky Glue.
The roof is also made from chipboard covered with foil embossed through an embossing folder. Some Gesso has been added and this has then been gently sanded back to reveal the detail.
The tree is a cheap one bought originally in green but was bleached white in diluted household bleach to remove the green colour. It has been decorated with bling on a string.
Finishing touches were to add die-cut borders and cutouts with an embroidered round window at the top. Edges of the roof and the tree were further embellished with cream mica flakes for a bit of twinkle.
Glad it's the shortest day today too, now looking forward to longer days going forward. Hope you are all sorted ready for the big day !
