Hello again!! As promised, here is the second housewarming card I made recently 🙂 While I had all the house stuff out, I used some of the elements from the previous card (brown embossed paper, Echo Park cardstock sticker, glitter foam heart, Stampin’ Up dies, Neenah Solar White) plus some modifications to make the second card 🙂 This one went to one of my dearest friends. After living 40 minutes away for 25 years or so, she recently moved about 5 minutes from my house!! Which means we will see each other ALL the time, right? Umm…
For her card I die cut two of the houses into the brown cardstock and layered the yellow patterned paper under them, then layered two more yellow houses on top. The edges are inked with Ranger Distress inks in Scattered Straw and Vintage Photo. I added the heart to the front door & popped the house up on foam tape and the outside was done!!
On the inside, I stamped a sentiment with the Nicole alpha set “Typewriter Uppercase.” (I know AC Moore still sells these, but I could not find a link for them 🙁 I was afraid to stamp the letters for the WELCOME directly onto the cardbase (don’t ask), so I stamped onto white scrap and punched them out with a ½ “square punch (Recollections, again no link, their website was not cooperating). The rest of the sentiment was easy because I used an alpha set I got once at a scrappy yard sale (Karen Foster Small Casual) and they connect together to form the words!! Score! These are go-to for me for that reason. I die cut a piece of the scrap brown with a Spellbinders classic scalloped rectangle die to back the sentiment.
Since that same yellow DCWV Mi Casa paper (circa 2009) was out on my desk, I made an envelope out of it and my project was done!! In the next post you’ll see what I did with the rest of those yellow scraps 🙂 Once I have a piece of patterned paper out, it’s hard not to keep going with it! Anyone else do the same thing?
Hope you are all crafting up a storm & using up your stash!!
