New House Card

Friends of ours moved into their new house, very close to ours. We brought them over a couple of bottles of wine and a loaf of home made bread the first weekend, but I didn't have the card with me.  Last weekend, I left it in our 'cabin bin' so didn't have it with me AGAIN. Hopefully I will see them this weekend. Sheesh.

I had picked up this scrapbook set (MME) at least a year ago because the colours were so fun and cheerful. The house print is perfect for a new house card! I used a patterned sheet of paper from a different stack with a ScorePal to make a coordinating A2 sized envelope.

Just for fun I fussy cut one of the houses out of scrap paper and popped it up with foam tape.

A few die cut clouds and printed embellishments from the package to finish off the inside, then I added a Tim Holtz die cut key with a bit of bakers twine.

Such a cheerful way to wish them all the best in their new place.

Thanks for stopping by today!
