New Home Card

This has to be one of the fiddliest cards I have made in a long time, The house was stamped twice and cut both out and I decoupage the bottom half so that it had a 3D effect I coloured them both using Tombo brush pens then added Glossy Accents to the beams.
I then stamped the fence onto a seperate piece of card stock and coloured between the fence in green for the grass, I then cut this out and added a couple of folds at the sides so it would wrap around the house.
On a seperate piece of card stock I coloured the bottom quarter green for the grass and added blue to the top of the card for the sky.
I made a gate fold card in a light green then stamped the wording around this I attached a ribbon to the back of the house long enough to wrap around the card and tie in a bow and only stuck one half of the house to the card.
All supplies are from Papertrey ink

Love the card Jak. This new set is on my list as the houses remind me so much of San Francisco- and I did leave a bit of my heart there.

Fantastic card, I hope you are not going to do this card in class because if you have had trouble there's no hope for me.
