A housewarming card for a friend!
Most of the materials used for this card come from the last order I've placed at Crafts-inspain:
- Sizzix butterfly embossing folder
- Dovecraft 6 x 6 Scrapbook paper Garden Party
- 10mm Polka dot orange organza ribbon
- Wooden purple & white polka dot flower embellishments
I've used the garden party scrapbook paper for the base of this card. I've cut out a white-ish cardstock of the same width as the scrapbook paper but only 3/4 as high, embossed it and glued it on the front of the card.
I've used the polka dot organza ribbon to 'mask' the junction between the two papers
I've looked for house templates on the internet, found this cute one and printed it on white-ish cardstock. I've trimmed the borders of the house and ink-stamped some bushes with a mini rubber stamp + VersaColor mint green (#40) and tropical green (#105) inks.
I've cut out the card in the middle of the window, created a background from the left overs of the scrapbook paper and mini curtains with the orange organza ribbon and white sewing thread.
I've used some scrapbook paper for the door's front panel and an orange heart-shaped rhinestone for the knob.
For a final touch I've added some orange rhinestones on butterflies' body and a wooden purple & white polka dot heart.
I've used the punch board from We R memory keepers to create an envelope of the same paper as the front of the card.
In the back of the card I glued a small tag (I've used the punch board to round the corners of the tag) with these words: 'Home is where heart is'.
