Christmas Houses

I don’t know about you, but I’m a sucker for any stamps and dies that feature houses – I just love them! Especially at Christmas. So I was super excited to get these little house dies from Time for Tea Designs to play with!

The process for making them was pretty simple – I raided my scraps and found some festive colours that I loved – most of these are from Concord and 9th. I die cut each house in a lighter tone and added a door and roof in a darker tone of the same colour, then die cut each house again twice in a pale yellow so I could inlay the window pieces. I used a piece of scrap paper behind each house to adhere all of the pieces to, as I knew I wanted to add foam tape to the back and pop them up later, rather than gluing them straight onto my card base. I die cut the snow from sparkly white card (again, Concord and 9th).

Next, I die cut the joy shadow die from vellum, and the JOY letters from a lovely matte gold, and layered them together. I popped some thin strips of foam tape behind the O, and added glue behind the J and Y (as they were going to be adhered to the houses, which were already popped up).

Finally, I added my card panel to an A2 sized card base using plenty of foam tape. I LOVE how this turned out, and it was so simple – just puzzle piecing the bits together (with a Christmas film on in the background!).

Hope you like it, too. As always, if you’d like to buy anything from the T4T store, my discount code is T4TJAYNE10, BUT there is a huge Black Friday sale starting on 26th November where you can get 30% off selected items, so go check that out first!!
