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.
