Postcodeloterij Christmas cards


Hello Crafty Friends,

December is here and a festive month.
 So here are some Christmascards. I made them with wrapping material.
I got these ceremic Dutch Houses (with a tea light inside) from
the Postcodeloterij (that is a Dutch Lottery). These houses came in 
boxes with the house printed on the outside. So I cut these out and used them
to make cards. Here are a few samples:

Here you see the box and the first two cards.
Card #1
Just an easy card to start. Design paper in the background,
ribbon around the cut out Dutch house and finished.

Card #2
Design paper in the background (Action)
and the stars are cut out with thinlits.
The sentiment is a stamp by Tim Holtz.

Card #3

Design paper in the background and the tree was insired
after seeing the Tim Holtz Holiday Hoopla last week.
You can see it HERE too.
The tree is from the set Bottlebush Trees CMS455.
The Dutch sentiment says: Happy Holidays.

Card #4
This card is also a little inspired by Tim's Holiday Hoopla.
Background design paper and snowman is from Tim's
Sizzix set Papercut Christmas 2 and the circle is 
from the set Vintage Labels.
Here the Dutch sentiment says Happy Holidays and 
Happy New Year.

Card #5

Now I came up with an easel card fully decorated with a
star background (stencil), more bottlebush trees
and cute hand cut gingerbread men. The stamped 
santa head is from my stash.

This is how the card looks sideways.

Now I have tree houses left to use for more cards.
Hope to see you soon again!

Thank you for looking
and have a wonderful crafty day.
