Mini Folder ATC size

Hi Susan from the DT here.  I hope you all have a good Christmas, and get all your Christmas wishes fulfilled.  I was inspired by Rubber Dance's Textured Houses to make a mini folder in ATC size.

I started by sticking Tim Holtz tissue wrap on as background.  Then it all got a layer of white gesso.  I stamped the houses and the stars, which were embossed with gold powder.  With distress ink and crayons I coloured the sky and the street.  The houses are highlighted with Prismacolor.

I have used:
Textured Houses, Beautiful Words, Watercolor Xmas, Pines Fir Yew, A Little Birdie and Frosty Friends, eyelet, TH tissue wrap, Prismacolor, Embossing powder gold, Archival Ink jet black, TH distress crayons, red thread.

The same procedure for the back of the booklet.

Here the houses are also used for some to/from cards.

Thanks for visiting the blog, and I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Hugs, Susan

You can find all the stamps I used and many more in the
