Another new home card...........

Yet another set of friends and neighbours have moved out of the village........that's two couples in one week which is very unusual for such a small village.  However they have only downsized and moved to the next village so will still see them.  Here is the card I made for them.

I die cut two Poppystamps Grand Gothic Iron Work and two Grand Gothic Windows and attached them with acetate in the back.  I have again used my Chocolate Baroque Home Sweet Home stamp set and stamped on the waste part of the Grand Gothic window so it looks like the landscape continues through the two windows.  I masked the houses to put in the background using DI's and they were coloured using Flexmarkers.  I've used an Anna-Marie's 8x8 scalloped card and cut a piece of her pearl card a little smaller than the base card so I could put it through my eBosser using Creative Expressions Basket Weave e/f.  The sentiment is from the same stamp set punched using my SU Modern Label punch.  The ivy is Joanna Sheen's Ivy Flourish and Ivy Corner dies.  Flowers and ribbon from my stash.

Thanks for dropping in and taking the time to leave your comments.

Happy crafting.
