Welcome Scene

Happy Friday!
The weekend is almost here! Maybe you have guests coming to stay for the Easter weekend. I think this would be the perfect welcome, stuck in a pretty little basket of fruit waiting for your family or friends in the guest room. Wouldn't that look nice?

I've had the idea for this card since I first saw the wonderful new Stonewall & Gate image. I had the other images all picked out but it took me a bit to figure out how the placement would work and what size card it would have to be. This card measures 5x5 and the inside (elevated) panel measures 4x4. I used a SAMJ to position the background trees in order to have them appear to go from the top panel to the card front. The little shoe house is on the top layer and I cut around the top and right side for an out of the box look. I sponged on the clouds and grass and colored everything else w/ markers.
The stonewall fence was stamped separately, colored and cut out. I used a single 3 leaf from the background to make the leaves on the winter trees. Here's an inside view showing how I carried the scene over. The greeting is the first two lines only of a Christmas greeting but I thought it went well with the Welcome from the front.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great weekend and a Happy Easter!

Ohhhhhh I love it, Julie. I love how your frame moves into the main part of the card. Great job with that cute shoe.
