New Home Congratulations

http://cardz4galz.blogspot.com/

As a brand new DT for Cardz4galz, and the challenge being for a CAS card I came up with a needed New Home Congrats card. Our neighbor finally finished building his house and moved in just prior to Christmas after living in his mother’s basement suite for quite some time.

I used a die set from MFT called Fox and Friends cutting out 4 houses out of scrap CS. I cut one in a silver mirror CS to denote his house and the rest plain white. After gluing them I added the following to the silver house, some gold sparkle in the windows and a blue door. The sentiment both on the front and inside (on your new home) came from an older Kitchen Sink set that I won. The striped border came from dollar store paper that I got just before Christmas. I heat embossed the sentiment and for once didn’t make a mess of the embossing.

Some other friends are also in the process of purchasing a home so I guess I’ll be making another of this type of card in the coming weeks.

I’m excited to be a DT and hope that I’ll do a good job of it. Thanks for stopping by everyone.

    1. Thanks Judy. It was an easy card to make and I’m sure my neighbors will like it. I still have to get a small gift, but then I’ll be passing it on.

    1. Thanks. I can’t take complete credit for the idea as I had seen something along these lines a few weeks ago. Most likely on Pinterest but I can’t remember exactly now.

    1. My neighbor and his family had been living in the parents basement suite for two and a half years while they waited for permits etc. And of course as they waited prices crept up and up so now they have to wait to do their workshop.

  1. Great CAS card and start to being part of the design team, Johanna. The houses are adorable and great idea to add some color to the “new” home. Love the script sentiment and the striped border to add interest without extra layers still maintaing the CAS vibe. Congrats once again.

  2. Thanks so much. I needed something easy for this challenge as I didn’t have very much time to make it. The next challenge will be easier as I can get a card done without rushing. I already have something in mind.
