New Home Welcome

>> Wednesday, June 18, 2014

After serveral years of poor economic growth, the housing market seems to finally making a turn for the better in my area.  There's quite a few houses up for sale in my neighborhood and both my parents and my In-Laws are looking to relocate as well.  There's been a surge in the real estate business, now that the weather is finally nice, and it looks like I'll have some new neighbors soon! I've created a little note card to welcome my new neighbors whoever they my be!  

DRS Designs latest release included this adorable Mushroom House (091C) that I've paired with the One Line Welcome Greeting (737B).  I stamped the Mushroom House on ivory cardstock and colored it with Copic Markers.  I matted it with kraft cardstock and then again with dark brown cardstock that was cut with a decorative die.  The card front was made from a piece of kraft cardstock that was embossed with the Swiss Dots folder for texture and then matted in dark brown.  Two dark brown brads were added to fill in the space in the lower right corner.  I stamped the Welcome Greeting on a fish tail banner and adhered it to the top of the card front as shown. The last step was to adhere the card front to an ivory cardstock base that measures 3" x 5.5."
