Welcome Home

Today's card is a fun little welcome home card that I made using patterned paper by My Little Shoebox. I started by cutting out a strip of the houses and then cutting out an individual house from a scrap piece. I adhered the individual house to the strip of houses with dimensional foam so that it pops up off the paper. I added Ranger glossy accents to the windows and added Amuse twinkle stickers to the lamp and trees. I stamped the sentiment last which ended up being a mistake because all those other layers got in my way. It came out too light and I had to go over the sentiment with a fine tip black pen. So...that is why some of the letters in the sentiment look crooked-Oops! Hope you enjoy!

Stamps: polka dot basics, boards and beams-PTI
Cardstock: melon mambo, old olive-Stampin Up, spring rain-PTI
Border punch: Stampin Up

That card is just adorable! I had to look really hard to figure out where you made corrections on the sentiment so you did a really good job. I've had to do that too, once or twice... ok, lots! The windows just really pop with the glossy accent added. Love it!

Look at those windows! LOVE the glossy accents...what a nice touch. And I can't see where the sentiment is "off" at all. You are imagining it! lol
