Why is this the last one? Because I've been asked to join the Paper Craft Crew Challenges Design Team and, after catching my breath at the surprise, quickly agreed before they had time to reconsider. Beginning with the next challenge on January 7th, therefore, I hope you'll come and check out my interpretation of the new sketch and those of the other extremely talented Design Team members. I'm depending on your support.
The house across from us has been on sale for a few months and a week or so before Christmas it was sold and new people have moved in. They've been away for the Christmas holidays, but the sketch this week inspired me to make a welcoming card for them. Along with some chocolates, this will be my small effort to make them feel at home in our neighbourhood.
I chose to use Pistachio Pudding as my base colour and then added white, Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral and touches of grey, blue and yellow for my house. The wonderful Holiday Home stamp set offered me not only the house for my card but also the sentiment. It was the perfect size to fit my arrow (cut with the What's Up punch) and also had the perfect words. How cool is that?
I've said it before and I'll say it again: I love the On Film framelits, especially the negative die. That's probably one of the reasons this sketch appealed to me. I love it in Calypso Coral, don't you? Instead of stamping the house directly onto my Whisper White square, I embossed the square using the Lovely Lace embossing folder and then set the coloured house half inside and half outside the frame.
The finishing touch of the Essentials Wooden element under the arrow is just perfect, isn't it?
