PP224 Homemade Holiday

I really liked designing this card.  I told myself I wanted to use the Holiday Home set this week because I have hardly touched it since getting it and the matching framelits dies about three weeks ago.  So excited to see that this challenge was perfect for using this set!  I played straight down the middle with transport(Santa's sleigh), embossing (Lucky Stars emboss folder), and die cut (Homemade Holiday framelits dies for houses). 
I was inspired by a card over at Jan Tink's blog stampspaperscissors.typepad.com.
She did  more heat embossing and coloring but I liked the houses stamped in Real Red on Crumb Cake.  I embossed the sky with stars and gave a scene that I will probably send as a Christmas Thank You so need sentiment on the front for now. 
Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed Tuesday!
