Hearts Come Home Christmas Card

Happy Halloween to those that celebrate! Otherwise, happy Wednesday 😉! I have a quick post for you today featuring the beautiful Hearts Come Home bundle from Stampin’ Up!. This bundle has the most beautiful and intricate dies that cut out the most adorable little rows of houses, perfect for any snowy holiday scene. I added a little twist to my Christmas card today so let’s get started!

I wanted to create an interesting background without it taking over and outshining the main focus which is my little house scene. So I started with some Basic Gray cardstock and used my circles in varying sizes from my Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies to cut out circles. I chose the same color cardstock for my card base and began adhering them onto my base. I trimmed off any ends that overlapped the edges of my card base and my background was complete. I just love the texture and interest this background adds to my card!

Next, I cut out a row of houses in Pool Party cardstock and then a different row in Soft Sky cardstock. I then die cut another circle (the largest stitched circle) in Whisper White cardstock. I layered my rows of houses onto the circle I just cut and then replaced the largest stitched circle over Whisper White circle with the houses, making sure to line the stitches up on the die with the die cut circle and send it through my Bigshot. This will cut the edges off of the rows of houses that we just layered on our circle so that they fit perfectly on our circle. I also added a scalloped circle in Dapper Denim to layer behind the circle.

Lastly I hear embossed my sentiment in white embossing powder onto black cardstock and added a piece of Dapper Denim Striped Grosgrain Ribbon behind my sentiment. Lastly I added some Wink of Stella to the houses and that finished off my card. Thanks so much for stopping by and I’ll see you next post!

I’ve included this picture below showing how beautiful the glitter effect is from the Wink of Stella added to the houses.
