Close up! I had so much fun making this little house and poking around in my stash to come up with "candy" decorations for it.
The trees are made from the Paper Rosette dies. Tim Holtz has a great tutorial on how to make them HERE. I frosted mine with micro bead "sprinkles" and topped them with colored Gumdrops to fit with the theme. Also, be sure to check out Tim's videos on assembling the Village Dwelling houses. They are very helpful.
I used the Village Winter accessory die to cut out the icicles and roof snow patches. The icicles are vellum with Rock Candy Stickles on them and I "frosted" the snow with Ranger Texture Paste and Rock Candy Glitter so it would look like icing. I also used the Texture Paste to pipe frosting details on the edges of the roof lines and walls. I put some paste into a little plastic bag and snipped a tiny bit of the corner off to make a small hole. I used it like a piping bag and added the "frosting" details.
