Hi Stampers! Today I have a fabulous card for you that uses a wonderful bundle from the 2014 Holiday Catalog! This card was made for a couple that just moved into their new home. As you can see, this is not a holiday card, but the Holiday Home set was perfect for this occasion!
The Holiday Home stamp set is currently offered in the Holiday Catalog with a promotion to bundle it with the Holiday Home Framelits. I just love bundles! Why cut things out by hand when your Big Shot can do the work for you?!?!?
The Holiday Home stamp set is Photopolymer which allows for you to add all the little details, exactly where you want, and this set has all those great details included!
Back to the card 🙂 This card is a standard A6 (6 1/2″ x 4 3/4″), but is scored slightly off center to allow a 1″ gap on the side for the sentiment. I rounded the corners of the front of the card to give it a softer look. I used Night of Navy card stock for the base.
For the first matte, I used Whisper White card stock and attached blue and green pieces of scrap paper and also rounded the corners . I attached the ribbon (also scrap I had laying around) to this matte and added a large bow.
The smaller matte uses another piece of Night of Navy card stock. On Whisper White paper, I sponged clouds using Soft Sky and Tempting Turquoise inks. I used another piece of green scrap paper for the “grass”.
Next, I stamped the house from the Holiday Home stamp set onto a piece of Whisper White card stock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The house is colored using Old Olive, Crumb Cake, and Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities. Then I got out the Big Shot and matching Framelit to cut out the house! The house was attached to the matte using Tombow glue.
The lantern from the Holiday Home stamp set was stamped next to the house in Basic Black ink.
For the finishing touches, a cloud was created using the Cupcake Builder punch. I also punched out a heart from Cherry Cobbler card stock. The “Happy New Home” sentiment is from the Holiday Home stamp set.
Using my Sassy Salutations stamp set, I added Congratulations to the inside matte of the card in Night of Navy ink. The off set fold is fabulous for this inside/outside stamped sentiment!
The Holiday Home stamps and Framelits are a great set to have in your collection, and you can save %14 when you buy them as a bundle!
Don’t forget, you have 2 days to get the Big Shot promotion if you haven’t already!
I hope you enjoyed this card! Thanks for stopping by, ~Bridget
