New Home Card


Andrea is moving house shortly, so I made her this new home card. I made the new home template using the cricut design studio and storybook cartridge. I was quite pleased with it as it was my first attempt. I used the design as a mask on the front of the card using peeled paint distress ink, and then topped it up with spiced marmalade. Added a strip of card and paper and a bit of ribbon. Added a layered flower and finally mounted the piece I'd cut and been using as a mask and stapled another piece of ribbon and added a couple of tiny flowers. Oh and last but not least, I used my PINK Zutter corner rounder to round off the edges. And I must thank Hilda for reminding me that I had one!!!!

That's excellent and great that you can fix it to the computer and do your own thing.

I love how you made the masks. I did try cutting some with my Robo but without success but that might have been me rather than the machine!

The masking has worked really well Sam, great card, she'll love it! Oh and did you know the BIA is now pink, thought you might want to trade your blue on in for a PINK one, (not).
