Snow is Glistening with Cricut Christmas House

Keep on keepin' on...creating holiday cards. I had these die cuts in my stash and had matched them with this paper last year.  I never got around to making the cards.  This year they finally came together. These cards also remind me of Bitten By the Bug 2's current challenge to use a die cut (this time it doesn't have to be Cricut) and Double Trouble's collaboration challenge to use patterned paper and/or a bow.

I used black layers to make the tan pop.  I stamped the sentiment on kraft paper and layered it on a die cut rectangle.  I layered the house on a black background.  Third I layered the designer paper mat on black before adhering to a white card base.

I had a three wood snowflakes lying on my desk, the perfect touch but it was too much brown.  So I inked them up with Versamark and embossed them with the same white glitter embossing powder as the sentiment.  I made four cards as I had four die cuts.  Therefore, I had to dig out similar snowflake which was already silver.  I left one card out of the photos.
