gingersnap challenge : cosy home

This month the challenges at Gingersnap are being sponsored by the Paper Temptress. The Design Team were each given the opportunity to choose 10 sheets of card/paper to use in this month's challenges.

Amongst my choices was this wonderful double sided card, which I thought worked perfectly with the cosy home theme as it is red on one side and orange on the other.
This card is amazing quality, perfect for a base card. I've emphasised the doubled sided colour by tearing the aperture. The house (from PaperArtsy) is also stamped onto the card, and coloured with whispers marker.

As you can see the card also takes embossing well.

I also used a thin strip of the laser gold glossy lustre and ran this through a dymo labeller for the embossed words.

I finished this pyramid card with a gold ribbon and a battery operated tea light, fo a truly cosy feel
