"Just about the coolest thing I've ever done"


In the spirit of trying new things, I decided to branch out as far as I could and tackle a very LARGE 3D project. After I was all done all I could say about it was "This is just about the coolest thing I've ever done." It took me about 8 hours to complete the whole project, and then about 3 hours to decorate. New Composition-7 - Copy
I got the diecut template from SVG Cuts.  I cut it out with my Cricut Explore. It is actually supposed to be a haunted mansion, but I'm not much into Halloween so I decided to make it a Christmas House. I think I am going to make a whole Christmas village eventually. New Composition-6New Composition-4New Composition-5
Since I am a stamper at heart, I couldn't just decorate with die cuts, I had to put a stamp on it somewhere. I used Tiddly Inks "Winter Wryn and Extra Snowman"  on the front of the house. I also added snow to all the roof edges. I couldn't find a template that I liked so the snow is hand cut and of course, glittered.
All in all, I still say that this just about the coolest thing I've ever done and am looking forward to doing it again soon!
Thanks for reading!
