SVG Cuts Mistletoe Manor

Hello my crafty Friends!

Today I have probably one of my largest projects to share with you! I'm so pleased with how it turned out, hopefully the recipient will love it just as much! 

This house comes from SVG Cuts Mistletoe Manor SVG Kit, but of course I had to add my own touches to it! I do have to give Thienly Azim lots of credit for my inspiration as well, as I have incorporated touches of her Home For Christmas project. (One of my all time favorite SVG Cuts DT projects from her, if you haven't seen it it's definitely worth checking out!)

Well what do you think? Isn't she a beauty!?
So realistic looking... I can't believe it's made out of paper!

For those of you interested here are all the SVG Cuts kits I used:
(yup, there were lots!)

House - Mistletoe Manor SVG Kit
Patio Greens - Clara’s Christmas Strips SVG Collection
 Fence - For My Valentine SVG Kit
 Chimney - December Gifts SVG Kit
Porch Greens - 3D Wintergreens
Bows - SVG File 3D Bow 2/25/12
Silhouette Trees - Forest County SVG Collection

Some other alterations I made to the house was to create little holes in the roof line to poke my Christmas lights through. I also added siding panels to my copula, to match the middle floor siding. 

I wanted to create some realistic looking icicles. To create them was super simple!
Using a glue gun, simply apply the glue to a craft mat in a straight line as long as you need. Then go back and attached the glue icicles to the line. If you don't have a craft mat you can also use parchment paper (any nonstick surface will work). Wait for the glue to dry completely and attach it to your project!

I also wanted to add some realistic looking snow. I used Snow-tex from DecoArt, that I purchased at Micheal's. This stuff is awesome! It didn't seem to warp my paper at all, and was dry within a few hours!

For the little snow balls on the trees, I used Liquid Applique. This stuff is so much fun, its almost magical. Goes on wet, but add your heat gun to it and watch it magically puff up!

One of my favourite touches is the Silhouette of a woman at the door. Looks like she is waving good bye to someone!

Well, I guess that goes for me too!
Good bye everyone ;)
Hope you enjoyed and were inspired by my version of SVG Cuts Mistletoe Manor!

Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting  :)
