New Home

I have a 'New Home' card to share today...I don't know anyone that's just moved or is moving any time soon, but it's always good to be prepared! I punched lots of little 'houses' from snippets of kraft card using a Woodware punch that was a Snippets Playground prize (thanks Di!), and one from a snippet of watercolour paper coloured with Distress Inks (Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers & Cracked Pistachio). I mounted them on to a kraft card blank using 3D foam pads, and added a sentiment (from the 'Big Messages' set by Paula Pascual).

Loving this card! Kraft and blue go so well together and I think it looks great how the middle house pops out of the surrounding ones. Excellent new home card! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)

Using repeated images is one of my favorite creative strategies and I love how the blue house pops off the kraft. Terrific new home card. So glad you shared your creation at Simply Create Too.
