New House

Good afternoon folks.
Just stopping by to share a card I made for my friend Chris who has FINALLY moved into her new house with husband Tim.
They have been converting a traditional 1930's bungalow with the aide of their architect son, into a modern two storey open plan home. I think they may have thought that it would never happen as their old house must have been on the market for 3 years!
Anyway I have hung back from making a card not wishing to jinx the sale offer they had in September until I had confirmation that they were now in.
So this is the card I made.

I've used a NEBUS set from STAMPlorations- The Bee's Knees, Houses and the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches.

I cut a panel of white card and diecut a smaller one with a MFT pierced rectangle die then stamped a row of houses in Memento Gray Flannel. On a piece of scrap I stamped another in black, coloured with Copics then fussy cut then mounted on pads over the central house. The die cut panel was attached to the white panel and stamped some more houses in Weathered Wood DI. The sentiment is from Mollie Bloom, one I had totally forgotten about! The whole stamped panel was then glued flat to a kraft card base.

That's about it then , thanks for stopping by. 


  1. Fabulous use of the sketch! I love the lighter color of the houses in the background giving it such amazing dimension. Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.

  2. Great card, Julie! Love how that one house pops!

  3. Fabulous card! Those houses are just too cute! Thanks so much for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches.
