Morning everyone - from a much cooler Somerset. We were forecast to have torrential thunderstorms from about midnight last night but got NADA!!! However about 10 miles away they got the deluge.............luckily I watered the garden last night.
Thought I'd share a new home card I have just made for friends of ours who moved yesterday. I've used the lovely Lattice Edge die and Open Window die, both from Britannia Dies. The flourish is Harrington Vine by Simon Says Stamp!
I used the Lattice Edge die at the ends of a landscape piece of A4 card and then die cut the window. I diecut a separate window and added some acetate for the windows before adhering to the back of the main window. I ran this piece through my machine using a Tim Holtz Alterations embossing folder to give the texture of brickwork. I cut the A4 card down to size to match up with the lattice edges. I then stamped the image of the house and the word Home (Chocolate Baroque) and coloured in Flexmarkers. I then took another piece of A4 and cut it to the same size and lined up one lattice edge and glued that to the bottom and then I bowed the front enough to get my flowers in the window and glued the other end to the back of the card. All the flowers and ribbon are from my stash. The sentiment is computer generated and die cut using nesties. The Home Sweet Home is from the same stamp set and I used my SU labels punch to cut it out.
I made a box to hold the card and covered with d/p. The name label on the top was computer generated and die cut with Spellbinders Majestic Elements. I then added more flowers and ribbon.
Thanks for dropping by.
