Holiday House

Cardmaking Inspiration from the Design Team Joset Designs

Holiday Season Memories

July 28, 2019

Everything about this card reminds me of Christmas growing up. My Oma would have these beautifully painted wooden Christmas trinkets she brought over from Germany –– and every Christmas they would make their way back into her home bringing Christmas cheer and excitement into the house.

Card Instructions:

Step 1: Using a variety of cardstock and specialty paper die cut all the pieces in the Holiday Birdhouse die.

Step 2: Stamp the sentiment on a kraft card front measuring 10.5cm x 15.5cm.

Step 3: Using red and yellow cardstock cut out 4 thin strips and adhere these to the top and bottom of your cardfront.

Step 4: (Optional) Add machine stitched detail to your card front.

Step 5: Adhere Double Sided Adhesive to kraft card stock and die cut the birds from the Holiday Birdhouse die set.

Step 5: Remove the release sheet to expose the adhesive layer and apply a generous amount of Silk Microfine Glitter (Light Gold). Brush off excess glitter and return it to the jar, then polish with a fingertip to bring out the maximum sparkle.

Step 6: Assemble all the die cut Birdhouse pieces to the center of your card front. Embellish card with sequins and a twine bow. Adhere card front to an A6 cardbase.

Hope you enjoyed this bit of Christmas in July inspiration.

Happy Crafting!

Gingerbread House Card

December 23, 2014

Happy Holidays Crafty Friends!

The sights and smells of the holiday season are all around and one of my favorites is Gingerbread! I love making it, eating it, and seeing amazing Gingerbread houses created by incredible artists. I thought it would be fun to take the Holiday House die and make a Gingerbread House-inspired card. I love how it turned out!

Here’s how I made this card:

1. Fold a 5 1/2″ x 8 1 /2″ piece of white cardstock in half to form a standard A2 size card base. Cut a piece of pattern paper to  5 1/4″ x 4″, ink edges with blue ink and adhere to card front.

2. Adhere ECD Transparent Double Sided Adhesive to a sheet of white cardstock approx  5 1/2″ x 4″. Die cut the snowy hill using the hills from Outdoor Edges. Die cut 2 small rooflines and one large one from Holiday House. Glitter with Cool Diamond Silk Microfine Glitter, polish with your finger to set glitter into the adhesive and bring up the shine.

3. Die cut the other pieces for the card, including 3 decorator trees in light blue cardstock from the Evergreen Pivot Card die.

4. Ink edges off all house pieces except white ones with brown ink. Using a white Gel Pen, draw “frosting” scallops on the roof. Add transparent silver glitter dots to the trees. Assemble the individual parts of the house.

5. Assemble card front. Adhere snowy hill about 1/2″ from the bottom of the card. Add background trees. Adhere large house directly to card front. Add roof with chimney on foam adhesive. Add both door pieces on foam adhesive. Add glitter dots and glitter borders as “candy” decorations on the house.

6. Die cut Merry Christmas from red cardstock and adhere inside card along with 2 strips of pattern paper and a red heart to complete.
