Stencilled "New Home" Card

Do you find that some months are busier than others when it comes to things to celebrate.  July is one of those months and on top of the usual birthdays and anniversaries there are a couple of new home cards needed too. 

Today, I decided to be disciplined and at least tick one of the cards off the list of pending makes. For this card, I have used products from several copanies.

I started by using two shades of Archival Inks (Pink Peony and Violet) through the Lavinia Stamps "Replenish Stencil" on the outer edges of a white card blank.

I then cut a piece of white card 4" square and used low tack masking tape to mask off the edges.I used the same shades of Archival  Inks through the same stencil in the central area of the card. Then removed the masking tape.

Next I die cut the little house shape.  The die is part of the Papertrey Ink stamp an die set called "Love Lives Here".  I cut two houses, sandwiching them together with glue.  I then coated the top one with Versafine Clair "Purple Delight" ink.  I then stuck the house into the central stencilled area of the card.

I used Versafine Clair "Purple Delight" to stamp the sentiment, which is part of the Funky Fossil Designs stamp set called "Home".

I then assembled the card, mounting the inner area on a co-ordinating piece of card before sticking it on to the stencilled card front.
