New Home Card



I needed to make a new home card.  I have followed the Pear Tress Designs sketch with the option of gems.  I made a New Year's Resolution to use up my stash of paper this year that I have bought/been given and I am still keeping that going apart from with commissioned cards/Design Team cards.  It's amazing how much I have used up this year - I might soon have to go out and buy paper!!!

For this card I have used some freebie paper from Cardmaking Downloads and it's a piece I had left over from something else.  It doesn't quite fit across the page but that's where this sketch fitted so nicely for me as unless I told you you wouldn't have known.  The backing for the decoupage that I have had for years and years I made with swirling around alcohol inks and generally having a good time.  I have made the insert in My Craft Studio using again some of the digital backing paper and adding some Summertime Designs ribbon digital flowers and some gem stars for a bit of sparkle inside the card.  The outside of the card is finished off with some paper flowers with Papermania gem brads for the centres, gems and a peel-off sentiment.

This card also fits the following challenges:

Secret Crafter - Anything goes
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Anything goes
Charisma Cardz - Anything goes.
