Snowy Houses

This is my card for this month's The Artistic Stamper blog challenge. The theme is 'Anything goes'.
I begun by stamping the houses with a VersaMark ink mad onto white card. I heat embosses the images using WOW Silver Bells embossing powder. The houses stamp I used is Our House from The Artistic Stamper.
For the snowy background I used The Artistic Stamper's Random Dot background stamp which I heat embossed again but using white embossing powder this time. I used a foam Blending Tool and a baja blue ink pad from Stampin' Up to create the soft blue background sky.

For the snow hill landscape I tore one edge of from the top of two pieces of white card. I cut a square of silver card and mounted the houses and hills onto it with various thicknesses of foam pads. I also added a strip and bow of Stampin' Up baja blue seambinding.
I used the blending tool and baja blue ink pad again to add a soft blue edge to the card blank. The card blank is a Fanciful card from Craftwork Card. The greeting is also from Craftwork Cards.

I attached the house image to the card. To finish I added snowflakes and faux pearls.
