I'm back with another House Warming item. My son and daughter in law should be closing on their house on August 8th. I am so happy and excited for them. (I think I've said that a dozen times!)
I was watching YouTube videos a few nights ago (this is my nightly ritual lately) and I came across a stair step card that someone was making for her realtor. I fell in love with it and thought it would be perfect for an invitation for a house warming party. Here is a link to the YouTube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hE8IEKc-eig if you'd like to take a look. I also saw a similar card on Pinterest that was made for a housewarming party. That one was made by Sharon White at http://www.sharonsscrappyspace.com/2012/05/house-warming-card-tutorial-now-available.html .
I used papers to match the color of my son and daughter in laws house and I left off the fence because they don't have a fence in their new front yard.
For the trees I used two different cartridges. The middle tree is from Just Because Cards (I bought this cartridge just for that cut because I LOVE it). The other two trees were cut from ? (I'll have to double check that) The house was cut from Create a Critter. I didn't like the windows the way they were so I hid them with my Gypsy and used hearts from the George cartridge instead. I also made the house a little skinnier and taller with my Gypsy. The sold sign is from Freshly Picked. I added a piece of white card stock on top of the sign and stamped 'Sold' with letter stamps from Close to my Heart. It's a Party is also a stamp from Close to my Heart. The grass was made by using the Martha Stewart Icicle punch. The little flowers are from an old punch that I got from Creative Memories.
The party information is hidden in one of the valleys of the card.
So far I have 6 done and about 20 more to do. It's a good thing they are super simple to make. If you have any questions please feel free to leave me a comment.
Thank you for looking. Cindy
