The Mixed Media Card Challenge is well underway, and this month's theme is home, with an optional element of lace.
I used a stamp that I designed earlier this year, which will be available in 2015. The background is Distress Inks, overstamped with Versamark and silver-embossed. The roofs have been washed with Wink of Stella and the eaves with Stickles, although neither show up in the photo. I added dimension with a diecut tree chopped in half and affixed them to either side of the card and topped the branches with a little more Stickles. The sentiment is from STAMPlorations.
Check out the challenge details here. The challenge is open until 11:55 PST on Christmas Day, if you have a little spare time on your hands ;)
I'm entering this into Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Winter Inspiration

Here's a one-layer card made with the same stamp:
Talking of one-layer Christmas cards, Shery has a new blog starting in 2015 covering just that: One Layer Christmas Card Blog - check it out and meet her design team. (Where does she get all her energy????)
