New Home

Its been a hectic few weeks when, among other things, I've been helping my Dad and Sister to down size and move house.  This is a card I made for them to wish them well in their new home.

The card itself has a pre cut centre front embossed in a lattice pattern, which I found in my box of bits. For the inside of the card I drew around the shape of the front aperture onto a piece of white card and cut to fit. Using stencil brush I applied some Adirondack Mountain Rose and Aubergine inks onto the card after putting a moon mask in the middle.  I stamped the birdhouse,fence, squirrel and bird using Clarity Stamps then added the sentiment, also a Clarity stamp, into the moon area.  For the background I brushed some Mountain Rose ink through a Clarity dotty mask before gluing the picture in place.

Once the card is closed the picture is framed by the lattice embossed front onto which I added some handmade flowers and foliage cut with a die and coloured with the same inks as I used in the centre.  The sentiment on the front of the card is LilioftheValley.

Thank you for taking a look, your comments will be very welcome.
