Happy New Home

June 11, 2018

Today I am sharing a card I made for a dear friend who has just move house.  I followed a basic tutorial by Amanda Bates to create my card.  I cut my card base from Thick Whisper White following Amanda’s instructions and I must admit I was inspired by a card I had seen that she posted but can’t find it now.  I embossed Cajun Craze card using the Brick Wall Embossing Folder which, unfortunately, has now retired.  This is one embossing folding I will miss very much.  I attached a strip of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper across the bottom of the card front and also across the bottom of the easel part of the card.   I attached the embossed card to the centre panel as well as both side panels.  I attached another piece of the same Wood Textures Designer Series Paper across the bottom of the centre panel, covering the bottom of the embossed Cajun Craze card, to “hopefully” look like a step.   I stamped the door from the At Home With You stamp set onto Smoky Slate card using Smoky Slate ink and cut out the image using the matching At Home Framelits Die.  I stamped the door image once more onto Basic Gray card using Basic Gray ink and cut out the door.  The door is hinged, so I cut down the score line to separate the door from the frame and attached the Basic Gray door to the Smoky Slate frame.  I stamped the “hanger” image onto the door using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I attached the door to the centre of the card front.  I stamped the small frame image onto Crumb Cake card using Crumb Cake ink and then stamped “congrats” into the centre of the frame.  I cut out the image using the matching At Home Framelits Die and attached the sign to the bottom of the stamped “hanger”.  I stamped the flower pot images onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and cut them out using the matching At Home Framelits Die.  I coloured the images using Rich Razzleberry, Blackberry Bliss, Granny Apple Green and Crumb Cake Stampin’ Write Markers.  I attached one of the flower pots to each side of the door.  I stamped the “welcome” image onto Whisper White card using Cajun Craze ink and cut it out using the matching At Home Framelits Die.  I attached the “welcome” to the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper on the easel part of the frame using dimensionals.  This is what holds the card open.

I stamped “on your new home” on the inside of the easel part of the frame using Cajun Craze ink.  I must admit that this is not a stamp set that I use very often, but I am so happy with this card that I think it will now see more ink.

This card was made for a very dear friend who has just moved house.  Unfortunately, I had the wrong address and so it has been sent and resent and hopefully has now reached the correct destination.

Bye for now,

Kris
