Holiday House - ICS #35

Ok, I pondered the sketch for a while, and when I ordered my gypsy on tuesday, I decided to wait to do my card for this sketch for the gypsy to arrive and I would do a cricut cut card. So I looked through my cartridges and saw this little house card on the Wild Card cartridge and fell in love!  Since I really need to work on my holiday cards I decided I'd make this one a winter holiday card. And last night at my LSS I found Basic Grey's new Eskimo Kisses line and knew that was the paper to use.

This is perhaps THE most intricate card I have ever done. Nearly all of it was cut on the cricut, using my gypsy to design the pieces. I had not a single problem doing it. In fact, it was easier than I expected and only slightly time consuming. I did hand cut a few things that I found to be easier to just cut myself. But for the most part, it's all cricut.  Oh and the picture doesn't show it, but the door window actually has some acetate in there like a real window. I wished that I had thought of it in time to do that with the round window. lol... oh well.  Also used some bling and stickles for detail touches. Thanks for looking!
