Moving House

October 26, 2017

My girlfriend (and her husband) recently moved from Sydney to North Haven (near Port Macquarie) to begin retired life.  It’s a big move, leaving behind the children and grandchildren but sometimes big decisions have to be made.  Having lived in the North Haven area for several years, I know they will love it – it is, a most beautiful place.  Anyway I thought I should make a card to send to celebrate the move.  I started by cutting a square of Whisper White card using the Hometown Greetings Edgelits Dies.  I cut Cajun Craze and Garden Green using the same Edgelit Die.  I sponged Garden Green ink onto the Whisper White card to represent “grass”.  I cut another square of Whisper White card and sponged the top two-thirds using Pool Party ink to represent the “sky”.  I cut the two house images from the Cajun Craze card and attached them over the Whisper White houses.  I cut the tree from the Garden Green piece and attached it over the Whisper White tree.  I attached this panel to the panel sponged with Pool Party ink.  I cut the largest circle from the Layering Circles Framelits Dies from the top half of Whisper White card and attached the sponged/die cut panel behind the opening.  I stamped the greeting from the  Dare to Dream (hostess) stamp set using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I attached the whole panel to scored and folded Cajun Craze card using dimensionals.

To decorate the inside of the card I stamped the three houses from the Hearts Come Home stamp set using Cajun Craze ink.  The two trees from the same stamp set were stamped in Garden Green.

I love how this card turned out.  It did take a little fussy cutting and playing with the dies but sometimes that’s half the fun.  It also makes my heart happy when I can use a stamp set for a purpose other than the one it was intended for.  I hope Kerry and Dave settle into their new home well and that we can catch up soon.

Bye for now,
