Watercolored Holiday Houses with Kelly

Hello Crafters!

First, let me apologize. I know Halloween is barely over and I'm hitting you with a Christmas card. However, just like the heart wants what it wants (if you sang that Selena Gomez style we're friends) - the crafty mojo wants what the crafty mojo wants. And mine wanted Holiday Houses.

Look at how cute those guys are. How could I say no?

I couldn't and so here we are with this adorable winter scene.

I actually used layers and die cuts. Like multiple layers. Christmas Miracle.

See what I did there?

Also, I used real watercolors. Serious adult ones. In fact, I used our own Yana Smakula's watercolor dot card.

It has gorgeous colors by the way.

You can watch the whole card come together in the video below.

In real life those snowy dots look amazing. It's next to impossible to see them in the photos. But, I encourage you to try it, it's a super cool technique.

Thank you so much for stopping by!
