A Step Back In Time – Holiday Home

Some stamp sets and dies are just too good to give up when they retire.  I love the images in the set Holiday Home stamp set and and the matching Homemade Holiday Framelits. You can easily create scenes for just about any season and any occasion.

I personally like creating cards with these products when friends or family move to a new home.  Since I had a friend who recently moved, I whipped up this sweet card for them.

I used the new Watercolour Pencils and a Blender Pen to colour the popped up house, while leaving the other homes bare.  I added the lamp post as I felt the ‘scene’ was too bare without it. I attached my Thick Whisper White cardstock to a Real Red matte.

I then attached this to my Smoky Slate card base.  Using a ruler, I added ‘stitch marks’ along the top and bottom using my Basic Black Marker. Finally I stamped the sentiment ‘happy new home’ in Archival Black ink on the Smoky Slate cardstock.
