Santa's Grotto using the Media 'N' Pastimes Board

Had a play today with the Glitter Girls Media 'N' Pastimes board creating santa's grotto by embossing the potting shed. I embossed on to brown card and then added a lighter shimmery brown to the roof, window sill and top of door. Some acetate was placed behind the window panes then using some light blue material I made some curtains for the window, I decided to have them drawn across. I placed a santa and elves image behind the door. The snow effect is snow-tex (gosh it's messy stuff) and glamour dust was sprinkled over the snow whilst still wet. Then I added a few gold peel-off hinges to the door and a door knob made of a punched gold circle and a foam pad. The grotto was then mounted onto a folded black A5 card using foam pads. I applied some more snow-tex and glamour dust on the bottom of the card and slightly up the sides and added some stars and the north star with crystal stickles and white sakura pen. A decoupaged tree was added to the front, a notice on the front of the door and a greeting to the back of the door and finished with peel-off writing to the card. It's not for anyone in particular just wanted to see how it would turn out, not too sure if I like it that much maybe I'll just use it as a prototype.

Now those of you who have been here before may notice the decor of my blog has been changed, I think it looks much better, what do you think?? I'd love to know what you think. Thanks to my mate Sue for the link, and if any other bloggers fancy a facelift (thats a blog facelift) you can find the link to The Cutest Blog on the top left hand side of my blog.
