Christmas holiday home

Hello and welcome.

I’m happy to be able to join the ladies at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week, with the theme challenge of “Little Town” set by the lovely Andreja.

Looking through my stamp library, I thought the Holiday Home stamp set by Stampin Up, together with the matching die set, would be perfect for creating my card.

I stamped a bunch of houses and accessories in garden green, night of navy and bashful blue inks, and then played around with various layouts before deciding on the final look.

I decided a triple side step card would be perfect and I could add depth by varying the heights at which I adhered the houses.

The trees and wreaths were fussy cut and attached after the rest of the images were in place.  The sentiment is from Holly Jolly Wishes, stamped using my stamp-a-majig for perfect placement. The card folds flat to fit into a standard C6 size envelope.

I hope you have been inspired to join the ladies at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this week – we would love to see your beautiful cards.

Have a lovely weekend
