Home for the Holidays

Hello there, as mentioned yesterday, I have another card to share with you using the Concord & 9th Home for the Holidays die set. This time I am using along with the Card Stacks Base dies for a card for my brother, SIL, niece and nephews. 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

I started off by die cutting the houses, trees, snow and lampposts from the Concord & 9th Home for the Holidays Die Set using various shades of cardstock. There are a few layers for the houses, roof and door. I also die cut the little wreaths and bows to put on the doors - so cute! 

Since I was making a Christmas card, I also die cut the snow to add to the roof pieces and the tops of the trees, which were cut in the different sizes. For the windows on the houses and also the lampposts, I added Lawn Fawn Pearlescent Vellum behind. I also added Tim Holtz Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter to the snow. I die cut the Concord & 9th Card Stacks Base Die and added ink blending with brushes and Distress Inks. 

I used Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch and Seedless Preserves. I then splattered it with Dr. Ph. Martin's Bleed Proof White paint for the snow. I die cut the snow banks with the die in the Home for the Holidays set. The front piece was stamped with the sentiment from the Hero Arts Graphic Lines Holiday Stamp Set. It was assembled and the houses, trees and lampposts added.

  1. It's an absolutely beautiful card and nice to see you do create a 3D card. I don't do them often now either! It's the most gorgeous little village and I love the colours that you have used on all of the cards you made with this die set. I'm sad I ran out of time to use mine xx

  2. this is stunning so much work - I;m sure your family will appreciate this card - I love everythng about it - please feel free to send me one hahahahahahaha
    Happy Christmas keep safe and healthy and happy crafting for 2022

  3. I love this card, thank you for sharing it. I received my die set on 23rd and managed to make two cards. I will be using this again definitely. Please may I ask how you made the little porch bit on the front house. As I cannot see an obvious way of doing it? Thank you

    1. Thank you so much. It is such a cute set! The house at the front is just made with the pieces in the set. The house is two layers and then I added the two roof pieces on top plus the door. If you go the C9 website - https://concordand9th.com/products/home-for-the-holidays-stacks-dies?_pos=1&_sid=64e809727&_ss=r it shows the different layers for the houses on the 3rd photo along. I did it exactly like that. I hope that helps and thank you for stopping by!

    2. Hi Michelle, thank you for your reply. I went to the website and found the video, it answered my question. Thank you again Jackie
