Spread A Little Christmas Cheer

Yes, I'm back again with another Christmas card. I've used Holiday home to make this one and it's based on the sketch at CAS Colours & Sketches, designed by our lovely hostess for October, Stef.

As you can see it's another one that just screams out "Christmas" but I looked for something different from trees and spotted what I thought could work well in the Holiday Home stamp set. I chose two houses and stamped them onto coloured card, before carefully cutting them out.

I stuck the one down onto some white card and popped the other one up, overlapping them to follow the sketch. I added a stamped wreath to the door of this house. I took out the centre of the wreath by punching small holes using my hand held punch

I added the greeting from the same set and finally popped the  white card layer onto the card base. Very quick and easy to make, I might make a few more of this design to send out to family and friends.

It is actually my birthday today and I'm celebrating quietly at home, as hubby and offspring are all out and about with things on for work, uni and school. Not complaining, may be I will get to do some crafting and I'm sure they will spoil me when they get together at the weekend.


  1. Love your little houses, a great interpretation of the challenge photo. Happy birthday too, BTW, for yesterday...Di

  2. Clever! Love the houses instead of trees, why didn't I think to be more original?!

  3. The houses work very nicely in place of the triangles. I like how you've used traditional red and green for them to help tie in the Christmas theme. The wreath is the perfect finishing touch!

  4. Lovely! I love the houses in the bold colors to stand in for the trees in the sketch.


Thanks for leaving a comment. I love reading them all!
