Today’s card has a simple front with a surprise inside, by die cutting the car or house on the front of the card, the image appears to be on the front but when you open the card it’s actually stuck on the inside of your card. I saw this done years ago, sadly cannot remember where, and made a similar card two or three years ago but was inspired to have another go at this great technique again.
My top card is made with the Designer Series Paper that co-ordinates with the dies from this set.
I've used a couple of different Christmas stamp sets for the sentiments. The Coming Home suite is available to buy from 4th August 2020
The Coming Home bundle is my favourite in the new Winter Mini Catalogue, love the paper, the stamp and dies. As it’s not Christmas yet I’ve made a Moving Home card. Trying to demonstrate how a Christmas stamp set can be used for non Christmas projecs. What’s great about these stamps is the houses have no snow, lights etc so can be used for different occasions.
I do not have a New Home stamp so I’m hoping the card design does the work for me.
I’ve stamped and die cut lots of the houses then decided my arrangement before sticking. The coloured house is popped up as is the car.
I’m itching to make a Christmas project now, well it is Christmas in July!
A retro feel Birthday card with a simple fancy fold. I’ve used the Jar of Flowers stamp set and jar punch. I went for a retro feel for my colours. I’ve used Stampin Blends for my colouring and added Wink of Stella for a touch of shimmer. The ribbon adds to the overall image.
The background DSP gives the retro feel to this card, this paper is from In Good Taste DSP
My card base is Basic Grey and I’ve also used some Whisper White
