New Home

Hi Bloggers

How is your week going? I am back to work after a half term break. This means fitting crafting in when I can. My Grand Calibur has made it back to Create and Craft now I have to wait and see what they are going to do about it.

I made two versions of today's card as I know two  people who are moving home soon. The two versions are slightly different to each other but I prefer this one. At least they will never be next to each other on the shelf to be compared.


To create the background I first cut the window with a Spellbinders die from some white card. I put the window to one side and then embossed the card with a mask. Once it was embossed I used some Distress ink  and inked through the mask to create the brickwork. 


I stuck some spotty paper behind the aperture and then reinserted the window I had cut earlier.


The flower pots and herb plants were cut with three sets of Spellbinders dies. 


The sentiment was cut with two  Brittania word dies, I backed it with a Spellbinders die that I cut about a bit to achieve the look I wanted. 


The cards are quite flat cards as I like to post New Home cards to people who have just moved house as I think it is good to get something nice in the post in your new home not just bills. 

That is all for now. Enjoy the rest of the week. Thank you for your visit it means a lot to me.

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
