Last month one of my stamping ladies bought her first house and she asked me to help her design a change of address card to send out to friends and family. I got to go see her new house and of course I didn't show up empty handed! A new house is an exciting thing and should be properly celebrated with stamped gifts of course!
For the card I used a Crumb Cake base which I distressed a bit with the spritzer tool. Another piece of Everyday Enchantment DSP and a length of Poppy Parade twill ribbon (if you love this ribbon get more of it now as it will be retiring in a few months!) went on the card front. I used a retired Sale-a-bration set from a few years ago for the image. Good Neighbors is such a cute little set with mix and match houses and roofs with several different tree styles and an adorable cloud. I have hung onto this set exactly for occasions like these.
The house on the card is stamped in Poppy Parade and the roof is Crumb Cake. I stamped the tree in Lucky Limeade and then colored in some of the "apples" with my Poppy Parade marker. The cloud is Pool Party. I punched the little scene out with my large circle punch and then layered it on a large scallop circle. I paper pierced the scallops and then popped the whole thing up with dimensionals.
You can read more about the glass magnets HERE and HERE. I just put them in a small cello bag and tied it off with another length of Poppy Parade twill ribbon.
This was such a cute little ensemble I think I'll be making more for all the new neighbors that will be moving into our neighborhood. Almost all of the empty lots have been sold and one new house is almost complete. I better get moving and find some more little candles and start stamping!
Thanks for looking! Did you stamp today?
