House-shaped card (JBE051 Challenge)

I have a friend who is a realtor and thought she might like this card to give to clients when they sign their house paperwork.

This card also satisifies the criteria for Jacksonbelle Embellishments' current card challenge - to make a card that's any shape other than a square (see challenge here: http://jacksonbelleembellishments.wordpress.com/2009/04/28/tuesday-challenge-time-again/).

This is a Cricut Wild Card cartridge offering. So stinkin' cute! I love that the door really opens, and here I stamped "Welcome home" in the open doorway.


I had a great time trying to make the door, window frame, and roof look like weathered red wood. And so much fun making the curtains out of Making Memories patterned paper and some red ribbon.

I especially like the way the topiaries turned out. The ink shading really makes them dimensional and I popped them out with foam squares.


Details: Paper - The Paper Company, SU!, Making Memories; Ink - SU!, VersaMagic, Colorbox; Other - Cricut; Offray ribbon; SU! stamp; foam squares; unknown brad.

TFL!

That is the cutest card!! So creative! I have taken the front house from a mini album and made it into a fridge magnet for my cousin and her fiancee's new home.
And that blinkie looks wonderful on your blog (hehe)
So, glad you found us! Hope you will be coming over this weekend! :D
