A New Home Card


I have some really wonderful post people who really go out of their way for me, and one of them Lorraine is due to move into her very first home this coming Friday, so I thought that I would create a card for her.

Ive actually used a stamp by Create-It, not sure where they are made, I think I actually bought this one on Ebay. Anyway I stamped it out onto white card and coloured it with my copic pens, after which I cut it out with my rotatrim and mounted it onto a piece of Holographic card.

The base card is a small one for me its 6"x 6", and for my first layer Ive used a bit more of the same holographic card, and a paper I found on one of the Crafters Companion Cds, this one has little houses all over it and it looked very similar to the house Id stamped and felt it was just right for my card. I also used the same design for my insert and just popped a message onto it before printing it out and cutting it ready to put inside my card.

I stuck the patterned paper on the first layer, after which I found a strip of Hession ribbon and stuck it around the middle of my card, and then mounted my stamped mounted image on top in the middle with some foam tape. The last thing I did was stick two heart buttons on the bottom right hand side.
