Mushroom House

The challenge this time at Make it Crafty is to create a card or project based on the sketch provided with a vintage theme. I made this card using Mushroom House and Christmas Elves from Make it Crafty.


I started off with vintage style holiday paper but in the end the card looks more modern than vintage! Here’s the Mushroom House before it was covered. The other challenges were to make a holiday card; use red and green; and something metallic (brads).
