Sense of Whimsy

Holiday Home Xmas Card

Holiday Home Close Up copy

I wasn’t going to start posting Christmas related projects until at least 1st November, but I have snuck this one in a day early! I chose to purchase the Holiday Home Polymer stamp set from Stampin’ Up! to use for my Christmas Cards this year, so there will be a few projects coming up using this set.

I like to have some “easy” designs for Christmas, so the first card is very simple.

Holiday Home simpleSorry about the colour in this pic … the cardbase is Cherry Cobbler and the houses are all stamped on Kraft card stock (it is just my lighting making the colour of the houses a bit off). I used three different ink colours on the houses, Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green and Early Espresso. You can use the Homemade Holiday framelits to trim out the houses, but they would be just as easy to cut by hand. The little trees are also in this stamp set and are stamped in Garden Green ink on white card. I trimmed those by hand.  There are two layers of “snow” which is just torn Whisper White cardstock. Layer it all together and add a few rhinestones for a very easy card.

Then I “stepped it up” by adding just a few extra elements, to create the card below.

Holiday Home Stepped UpIt is still pretty simple, there is a little bit more drying time for the glue where I have added the Dazzling Diamonds glitter (use your two way glue pen for this). I added some glitter to the torn edges of the snow pieces, on the edges of the trees and on the roofs (and window arches) on the houses. I also stamped the houses again using the same ink colours as cardstock and trimmed out the doors and chimneys and adhered them to my houses.  The addition of Santa and his reindeer flying through the sky is a little bit of whimsy!

I hope you like this easy Xmas card …. stay tuned for more projects!
