#6 Christmas Houses-again!!

The same directions as week five. This is just my blue version. I did use All Is Calm DSP for the snow and the Santa and sleigh is stamped in Lost Lagoon. The light pole is in basic black. I love this stamp set!! Base card is soft sky.

Week#5 Christmas houses

Base card is 8.50 x 5.50 I scored it on the 8.50 side at 4.25. Now when reading my instructions I will tell you I use my stampinup paper trimmer upside down. The logo is upside down and thr trimming bar is on the left side of my cutting platform. Now that is out of the way. Here are the instructions.
Line up the cardstock on the 5.50 side and bring the right side down to the 3 inch mark. So when you cut in it will be 2.50 inches wide. I use a piece of a post it note to mark my cutting mark which will be at the 1 inch mark and stopping at the 6.50 mark. Then you will turn your card stock to the 8.50 side and your fresh cut 2.50 will be at the top. Line up the right edge at the 7.5 and score up to the 3 inch mark again use a post it note to mark your stopping point so your score marks should be as you go 7.50-6.50-5.25-4-2. Reminder you are working from the right sliding your cardstock to the left.
Fold your score mark on the 2.5 width side in mountain fold see picture below.
Now to fold your mountains and valleys on the 3 inch side start at the front of the card with the first 1 inch mountain, and keep folding mountain-valley-mountain-valley-large mountain. Refer to photo.
I added a 1x5.50 strip of whisper white on the front of the card add your trees and your red house. Add an additional strip of whisper white 1x5.50 strip cut the top into hills before you tape down. Also cut your white glitter paper into a slight slope. If you like your card with out the glitter paper save it for something else. Add your houses in each valley according to the photo and glue in place.
These pieces are embossed in white embossing powder.

 I have been very blessed in my life with wonderful women that fill my life with complete joy. I am thankful everyday for these blessings as my friends have carried me through some very difficult times in my life. With that being said may I introduce you to a very special gal pal I run with. Her name is Mary and I have a very special place in my heart for her. My favorite gals have been going on a crafting retreat for the last few years and it is my most favorite time of year. I absolutely love Halloween. This girl dressed up as my BLOG and it was so touching I laughed until I cried. It was so amazing that she took the time and effort into making my day, but then I expect nothing less from her. Thank You Mary for making me smile!
