I have a special card to share with you today. My niece and her partner recently bought their first home. It is a very big deal and I wanted to make a card to share in their excitement. The pressure was on though as my niece makes cards and comes to my classes. Here is the card I made for them.
When I was going through my stamps I realised I didn’t have a lot for housewarming cards. They are not cards you make too often but I came across the Sweet Home set and the Home Sweet Home Thinlits. I thought they would work well. The colours are Old Olive, Soft Sky and Sweet Sugarplum. The card layout was using the card sketch from CASE THIS SKETCH #193.
The paper I used was from the Merry Little Christmas DSP. This paper doesn’t have to be used just for Christmas. It has some great prints either Black and White or the Old Olive. It really doesn’t do it justice in the catalogue. (p 12 Holiday Catalogue). When I sat the house on to the paper I thought it was a little plain so I added a Vellum circle and some loops of the Silver Thread. This was a fun card to put together.
My niece really loved it. It passed the test I think. 🙂
Thanks for visiting,

Hi Jenny – I just found you and I will be back – so many great ideas!!! In the meantime I found your sample for the Night in Bethlehem fold out card – I would love to buy the set and make these for Christmas – but where – oh where are the instructions for making the folding card?? I get the stamps, the papers, etc. but knowing the dimensions would make life so much easier
Claudia, Thanks for stopping by. The instructions for the step card with the Night in Bethlehem set is on the blog post with the card.
