Home is Where the Heart Is

HI Everyone!

Hope you guys had a great weekend - I am still recovering from all the festivities of this weekend - but am excited to show you this card that I made for a friend of mine who wanted to give a card to her friend who just bought her own first house. 

I am on the fence about getting a Cricut - so while I am trying to make up my mind - I go over to play with my friend's Cricut :) and used one of her cartridges to print this house out. I used the Echo Park Paper Summertime papers and some extras from my Summertime Project Pantry Kit  from Taylored Expressions for the house and trees. And used the beautiful sentiment "Home is where the heart is" from the Love Everywhere stamp set from Taylored Expressions (I love that the "O" in Home has a heart in it"). 

I used the sentiment: "Congrats" from one of my most favorite stamp sets: Hangin' Out stamp set from Taylored Expressions. I used the grass border punch from Martha Stewart and finished it off with a wee bit of bling and Adirondack Liquid Pearls.

I also added a bit of glaze to the windows and used my Swiss dots embossing folder to run the house portion through. This card ended up being a bit more heavier than the usual card sent through the mail :) But I really do like how it ended up turning out :)

Have you been checking out all the wonderful videos that Taylor has been creating to celebrate a handmade Christmas? She gives such great ideas and there are a ton of deals in the Taylored Expressions store waiting for your crafting pleasure!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by today!!!!!
Big hugs,
Sankari :)

Gorgeous card - as usual. You should get the Cricut...I bet you will make amazing projects. Heck, they'll probably give one to you for free cause once you start using it their sales will go up! Naz
