Today I am sharing a handmade I’ll be Home Christmas Card that was made with the I’ll be Home Stamp set by Stampin’ Up! The I’ll be Home stamp set is retiring with the Holiday catalog this year. So don’t miss out!
This card uses the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series Paper also from the Stampin’ Up! Holiday catalog.
Here are the details of this card:
The card base is a piece of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock cut to 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and scored at 4 1/4″. Next is a layer of Mossy Meadow cardstock cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″. Then a piece of the Festive Farmhouse Designer Series paper cut to 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″. Then there is a 1″ x 5 1/8″ strip of the Mossy Meadow design of the Festive Farmhouse DSP across the bottom of the card.
Next I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 3 1/4″ x 3 1/4″. This is layered onto a piece of Early Espresso cardstock cut to 3 3/8″ square. The third layer is a 3 1/2″ square of Mossy Meadow cardstock.
I used Early Espresso ink to stamp the image of the House on the White square. I set this aside to dry thoroughly since I wanted to use my Stampin’ Blends to color in section of the decorations. I liked the look of the roof with stamped with the darker brown ink rather than the black of the Momento Ink. If I were coloring in more of the house I would use the Momento ink since the alcohol markers could cause the Early Espresso ink to run. I filled in the bushes along the front with my Pear Pizazz Stampin’ Write marker to make the bushes a lighter shade of green. I colored the front door of the house with Balmy Blue Stampin’ Write marker.
And don’t forget about the inside of the card. I added a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of Whisper White cardstock to the inside of the card. I decided to dress up the inside of the card with a strip of the Festive Farmhouse DSP to finish off the card.
