Although I do occasionally use a sketch to get started on a card it isn’t my usual mode of card making. For some reason I found this one particularly challenging which meant it took me a while to make it. I began yesterday afternoon and couldn’t figure out what to do but decided to build it layer by layer. First the pp was cut and added then I matted the white patterned piece on which I scored some diagonal lines. Once this layer was added I used the small piece of pp left over to add the vertical layer. From there I was stumped and decided to leave it overnight so I could think about it. On returning to it this morning I decided on white squares matted the same as the white layer and again got stuck. After an hour dog walk and lunch I had the idea of making it into a new home card, as I remembered some friends have just moved. The little house is something I created on the computer as I don’t have any stamps of buildings. I coloured it and added glossy accents on the windows. I also had the puffy key sticker in my stash so that was added on the side. Using two stamp sets one by Unity Stamps and another, I’m not sure which company, I stamped the envelope and the sentiment. Added these layers to the card front with the smaller sentiment strip underneath. Now that it is finished I can’t see why I found it so challenging in the first place – lol.
