New House Cards

Last month, BOTH our daughter/new hubby, and our son/girlfriend bought houses and moved in. I sent each of them a card to celebrate.

The card in the foreground was made using a Stampin Up roller stamp. I sometimes need to make house themed cards for a realtor friend, so that is why I purchased that particular roller. 

I rolled the background several times on a white card stock panel and again on a scrap. The scrap piece was cut out into a square, light colour added with a water brush and chalks, then it was matted on a caramel torn edge panel.

A strip of glitter house paper with layers of green card stock and orange glitter paper, and a word stamp (Gina K) stamped with orange ink. I LOVE this paper and colour combo.

We wrote our good wishes inside and sent the cards off to the happy couples.

Thanks for stopping by today!
