You won’t believe the details on this handmade Christmas house card!

With the holiday season thisclose we wanted to share a project that really gave us all the Christmas feels. This handmade Christmas house card from Kittie Caracciolo is so incredibly detailed and it makes us want to run up those steps and knock on the door to see the inside!

Kittie used our Tabbed House die for all the architectural elements and then used our  Snow Accessories for House set to add all those charming seasonal details. And while Kittie styled her house for Christmas, this basic design is frosty perfection for the whole winter season.

As she always does, Kittie shares every teeny tiny step in her handmade Christmas house card post so if you want to make this card, we are here to say you absolutely CAN! Just pop on over to her post and follow along.

A few quick notes:

  • Kittie used a Horizontal Premade Center Step Card from The Paper Cut for her base. The Paper Cut has lots of different styles of these dimensional, fun fold cards and they are a huge timesaver!
  • She added that lovely glow to her windows by cutting them from vellum and used a yellow marker to color the backs to give them that warm light.
  • Kittie offers a PRO TIP in her post where she says assembling the little porch first and then adhering the whole thing to the house makes placement really easy
  • She also added clear Stickles over her little holiday lights for realistic sparkle. You can’t see it in the photos but let us tell you – it is SO FABULOUS!!!
  • Kittie made her little snowman from some punchies and scraps – super cute!

Can you even imagine someone opening an envelope and taking THIS out? And as complex as it is, the dies really do all the hard work and with some glue, a little time and either Kittie’s vision or your own, you can create a handmade Christmas house card just like this one. What do you think? Will you give this a try?
