New Home

My parents moved house yesterday...and this is the card I made for them...I know they received it today, so it's safe to show it on here. I used stamps from the 'Family Home' set by Stampendous...stamping the houses on to snippets of patterned papers (from the 'Paper Hearts' pad by Crate Paper). I carefully cut them out, then added them to a scene made using more papers from the same pad (and one from the 'Frost & Snow' pad by Craft Creations for the sky). I distressed the edges of all of the papers, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment was made using stamps from the 'Graffiti' Alphabet set by Paper Smooches.
