I don't know what's got into me, two days in a row of "just because I wanted to make them" cards, no DT requirements again LOL
The image is from one of the teams I'm on but I made the card because I wanted to, not because I was asked to. It feels good to play without boundaries once in a while.
Of course there had to be challenges that worked with this and here they are:
365 Cards Day 318 had a Home Sweet Home theme
Creative Inspirations had the theme of "New Year, New Products"
Charisma had an "Anything New" theme too
Crafty Creations wanted 3 different textures
Stamp With Sarah Kay wanted an Easel card and you know I love that style!
Sweet Sketch Wednesday had a super sketch that worked perfectly with the Easel card
Our Creative Corner had the color combo of Blue and Green, any shades.
There She Goes wanted 3 different types of embellishment
Hand Full Of Stamps wanted Polka Dots and the scalloped mat has a polka dot pattern
I just had to use a house from the fabulous New House Collection at Lily Boos. It was hard to chose which of the super cute houses to color but I thought I'd start with the flowerpot house and I'm sure I'll be doing some more really soon.
The papers are from the Modern Basics page kit by Colorbok from Joanns. These were just clearanced out and I managed to grab a couple as I love the colors.
For the different textures I embossed the ribbon panel with the Victoria Cuttlebug folder, handmade a folded petal style flower and added chunky rick rack for another different feel.
The border punch is EK Success, the paper roses are Prima and the pearls are Queen & Co.
I added another rick rack and punched combo border to the inside of the card to help it stand. I also added a small message mat for you to send your greeting on.
I just love the Easel style of card and just think how the thrilled the recipient of this New Home card would be, they get a card and a decoration all in one!
