NEW HOME BOX CARD

Hi all,

Hope you're having a lovely weekend so far.  It's raining heavily here this afternoon but it's nice to be tucked up in the warm of my craft room enjoying World Card Making Day!

Today's card is something I have put together after having a play with the Pop on By Stamp Set that you saw in my last post.

It really is lots of fun, and it's nice to spend more time putting a card together than the quick ones I seem to have gotten into the habit of making recently.   Unfortunately it's really difficult to photograph so I have taken a few!
This card measures 4" square, and although it is a box card, it can be folded flat for posting!  I have cut a piece of cardstock that is 4" x 10.5".  I have then scored along the longest edge at at 4", 5",  9", 10".  For the aperture, I have used the largest square die from the Layering Circles set.   The important thing is to not put together the box until the card has been fully decorated.


The idea behind this one is that the internal background of the card is used to create the scene behind the house.  (I should have taken a photo mid-way through this card so you can see the effect better!)
I have created the grass and sky using sponge rollers and ink.  The trees have been stamped in regular ink.  For the clouds I have used Embossing Paste and the clouds mask.


For the front, I have stamped the fence image individually a number of times, coloured with Watercolour Pencils and an Aqua Painter, cut out and put together as a long fence.  I have stamped the house image onto Whisper White Cardstock, coloured with a selection of Stampin' Blends, cut out and attached over the fence.


To finish, I have created the Bunting along the top with the Pick a Pennant Stamp Set and some Linen Thread.  The word "Home" comes from the Pop on By Stamp Set. 



I would love to read your thoughts on this one so please feel free to leave me a comment.
