New Home

This is to cover two challenges, the new cute card blog and papertake...

Challenge #1 - New Beginnings
To celebrate the launch of our new challenge blog we would like you to use the theme of new beginnings or 1st's. This could be new baby, new home,new job, wedding or anything else 'new' or any other 1st you can think of.





Firstly I think the little house is very cute and the background paper is also on the cute side. It's for a couple moving to a new house and so I thought I would include their initials.

I have stamped the house on patterned paper and pieced with thin 3d foam. The windows I've added clear glaze but it's impossible to see in pic.


I thought I would have a go at the frame tutorial but instead of the square I went for an oval. After cutting the file folder I used oval nestatability put it through with embossing rubber and created the frame by cutting more diagonals. Cut the scallop frame with nestabilities to hide all the cuts then stamped swirl and positioned house insert.

By using the file folder I didn't need to cover the back... it went straight onto the backing paper, which I finished with faux stitching and eyelets!
