The theme this month is “congratulations,” and the first thing I thought of was congratulating friends on the purchase of a new home. It’s such an exciting time, and an important event to celebrate.
For today’s project, I needed something to represent a home, and I found the perfect house in the Hometown Greetings die set. I wanted the house to shine, so I die cut the house from a sheet of Silver Foil.
The second thing I thought of was the “congrats” die from the Sunshine Wishes die set. How would I use the word? I’m a DSP gal, meaning, I love using Stampin’ Up’s Designer Series Paper. A paper series named Petal Promenade was calling to me, where I found an interesting, realistic wreath to surround my silver house.
Next, I thought it would be cool to use the eclipse technique with the word, “congrats,” cutting through the top of the wreath. To blend with the DSP, I chose Smoky Slate cardstock for the card base, layered with Blackberry Bliss cardstock.
The sentiment, “On your new home,” is from the At Home with You stamp set. A label die from the Merry Christmas die set was used for cutting. A Bouquet Bunch die cut the pretty flowers from another piece of the Petal Promenade DSP, and I topped the flowers with pearls.
I completed the inside with a sentiment from the Better Together stamp set. “May life be filled with fond memories.” And, the envelope flap is decorated with a piece of Nature’s Poem DSP in Blackberry Bliss.
I’ve enjoyed sharing today’s project with you. Thanks so much for stopping by, and I wish you a life filled with fond memories!
