Welcome Home

My Grandma is moving tomorrow to a senior living complex.  This is a decision that took her years to come to.  But now, she’s raring to go live there.  In honor of this momentous occasion, I decided to make her a card!  She really enjoys it when I give her my handmade cards.  I think this one turned out pretty cute too! 

I had to borrow the Neighborhood wheel from my friend as I don’t have any stamps related to a house!  I used whisper white to create the card then added some blue DP that I had for the ‘sky’.  I rolled the stamp out with versamark then added silver embossing powder.  At the last minute, I decided to cut out a couple of houses and the clouds.  I’m glad I did!  I actually messed up a couple of times on this card.  Shhh!  When I was doing the circle punch, since we have the creative memories brand, I accidentally cut out both the holes!  I sneakily covered up the mistake hole with the grass and another piece of paper on the inside.  My other mistake is underneath the blue Happy Day saying.  My first try I rocked the stamp and it said Happy doy.  Not good.  I used Figures of Speech to make the little flowers.  I just left out the saying that goes around it!

The recipe:

Stamps:  Neighborhood, Figures of Speech, Doodle wings (Stampendous)
Paper:  Whisper white, wild wasabi, blue DP
Ink:  Versamark, versamagic (Spanish olive)
Accessories:  silver embossing powder, scissors (to cut the grass and houses), circle punch
