3-D Christmas Cards with Concord & 9th.

I was so happy when Ellen Hutson had a Christmas sale several weeks ago. I was finally able to purchase the Concord & 9th Christmas Cottage Stamp & Die set and they were 30% off!! The best way to figure out how to make these fun scenes is to watch the Concord & 9th Video that takes you step by step how to cut the papers to the right sizes and get started correctly. I would suggest making several of these at once because it does take some thought and concentration to cut everything to right size. Here is a link to the video. They have a pdf you can look at also.

I made about 10 of them and I used different background colors to see what colors I liked the best. Some got mailed before I took photos, but I made sure to keep these to and photograph them before they got sent out. I was happy with all of them. I stamped with colored inks after die cutting all the elements and I used Stickles along the snow lines to add some interest. I used my Signo white gel pen to make dots on the colored paper that can be snow or stars. The sentiment is from a PinkFresh holiday stamp set. These were really fun to make but they took time so make sure you don't have to rush through them when you decide to make them

Hope these give you some inspiration for using these super fun and unique dies and stamps.
