House card/ornament

Monday's challenge at 365 Cards was to make a card that could be an ornament. I thought a house card could be cute, and remembered this fun little digital house stamp from Paper Popsicles that I used for Halloween and Thanksgiving - maybe it would be good for Christmas too!

I used my digital skills to enlarge the house and cut away the background, then I flipped the image and attached it at the roof line to make a card that had the image on both sides, a feature I considered essential for an ornament. I've only shown one side here, as I colored them identically. You can see from the scan that I ran a ribbon through the fold to hang it - there is space on the inside for a message. The house is ATC size, as a little something for my swapping bodies.

Things started getting out of hand when I started putting glitter glue along some of the edges, to simulate being decorated with lights. Still I think it is a cute little card, and will happily send it off to a friend.
