Mrs. Santa's Place

Hi everyone, are you enjoying our Poppystamps Blog Blitz so far? Thanks for your visit today, which we all appreciate very much! 

Today I'm going to show you a harmonica folding card with Mrs. Santa's house. But let me ask Mrs. Santa to show you around her house, after all, this is where she lives:

"Oh ladies, I am so thrilled to invite you to my home today! Ira has asked me to give you a small tour of the house. Here's the front of the house, I've just put up the garland on the front door, for I knew you were coming!"

"Please come into my humble abode, you are most welcome here. This is the hallway. As you can see we do have some house rules. Oh, and My Deer wishes to say hello to you, too!"

"And here we are in our cozy sitting room where the fireplace is lit already and the stockings are hung. Let me bring in the milk and cookies now, shall I? Hope you had a nice stay in my Christmas house!"

I started out by making the harmonica fold card first (the Stair Frame die forms an excellent base for this!) and inking up all edges with Distress Ink. The windows were also done the same way to keep the same colour. I then put some glue on the window ledges and roof and glitter powder was added to them as well as to all the edges of each page. The texts were all printed directly onto vellum and the sweet fawn was cut to fit the photo frame on the wall. Since I like 'wild fires', I placed the dies slightly apart (the pattern was taken from actual fire). 

The die we're giving away will be "Grand Madison Fireplace"; would you like the opportunity to win it? Then please leave me a comment and who knows you'll be making lovely cards or other creations with this exquisite die! You have until Midnight US EST on July 18 to leave your comments, winners will be posted on July 20. Thanks!

What a terrific card idea. I love it. The little stockings hung by the chimney with care are so cute. This card would be a Christmas gift in itself.

Wow, what an awesome card!!! LOVE it all, the dies, the colors, and most certainly Mrs. Claus's House!

Amazing card! So many beautiful details... love the cottage with all the snowy detail, the stairs, and the fireplace with stockings! Fabulous use of the dies on this awesome card!

WOW! I love all the glitter.

What a beautiful, warm, heartfelt card! I love it.

Very nice Christmas card! Really like the Grand Madison Fireplace die!

Fabulous card, inventive and original. Equally amazing is that all these détails are made with MB dies or stamps. A few years back, all this would have been impossible.

Stunning and beautiful Ira

Fantastic card! It is so clever and beautiful. Even with all your skills, it must have taken hours to design and make. I love it. Extraordinary.
