Nighttime in the neighborhood

At the time I made this card, I had recently bought this lacy Dizzy Border die by My Favorite Things. When I looked closely at the diecut, I saw a unique 'street' for a little neighborhood.


I stamped three cute houses from Stampin' Up!'s Holiday Home set, trimmed them, and left them uncolored, except for the windows in one of the houses.  Hey, someone had to be home and awake in the neighborhood! 

They're propped up on dimensional foam tape, over the doily-like street. A simple sentiment from Papertrey Ink's Boards & Beams was heat-embossed in white.


Since the card is all black, I had to line it in white, as you can see above.

Thanks so much for joining me!

I absolutely LOVE this! I adore this SU! set but I held back and never got it. So many stamps still waiting their turn...
