Eat, Drink & Be Merry

Hello there, today I have a few cards to share with you using the Concord & 9th Home for the Holiday Die Set. I fell in love with this set as soon as I saw it! Those houses are adorable but I just love the added details with the wreaths and bows and the lampposts!

For my initial card today, I started off by die cutting the Concord & 9th Home for the Holidays Die Set from various shades of cardstock. I used C9 Aqua Sky, Oceanside and Peacock for the house. White for the snow. Hero Arts Pitch Black for the lamppost and C9 Clover for the tree and wreath. For the bow, I used Spellbinders Wild Berry

The pieces were all assembled, adhering with Bearly Art Glue. I then added more of the glue to the white areas and sprinkled on Tim Holtz Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter. The pieces were set aside while I worked on my background. I took a panel of white cardstock and placed the Clearly Besotted Around About Stencil on top. Using the open area as the sky, I blended on Distress Inks. 

I used Peacock Feathers at the bottom, followed by Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch. I finished off with Seedless Preserves at the top. With the stencil still in place, I splattered on Dr. Ph. Martin's Bleed Proof White paint for the snow. It was set aside to dry and the sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Happy Everything Stamp Set stamped below in black. The house, trees and lamppost were then added on top. 

I made quite a few different houses, trees and lampposts, I added Lawn Fawn Pearlescent Vellum behind the windows in the houses and the light in the lampposts. I did create four more cards using them in blues and purples. I also made a 3D card with them, which I will share tomorrow.

I think these houses are adorable and I had a lot of fun putting these together. I hope the recipients like them! Thank you so much for stopping by today, I really do appreciate it. As of writing this post, I still have another Christmas card to make and then I think I am done with Christmas crafting, I think. Now to start wrapping the presents! Have a good day! 


  1. Both of these cards are so pretty, and they pair so well with the Clearly Besotted die. I love all the gorgeous details, the snow in the sky and the little wreath on the door with the pop of red. So beautiful! xx
