Home Themed Card

Hello! This is a very timely card with the social distancing being encouraged to control the spread of CoVid 19. I hope you are safe, wherever you are. 

I am using Pebbles This Is Family collection for this card. My previous post entitled Sketch Inspired Srapbook Lay Out features this collection too. 

I trimmed the house patterned paper to 5 1/2" x 4 1/4". I colored the houses with Akashiya Sai watercolor brush pens. I colored these houses using the colors on the sentiment as a guide. This sentiment is cut from one of the patterned papers. Although there are other elements in this collection that has the same sentiment, I like the font and size of this sentiment. 

I looked through the ephemera pack and found these two house shaped sentiment die cuts. There are only two house die cuts in the ephemera pack. To keep up with the rule of three's, I created a third house by tracing the skinny house on a white card stock. I covered the back part of this white card stock with washi tape. I cut the house by following the pencil lines. I added a goid foiled sticker to the center of the house.

I traced the letters on the sentiment with a We R Memory Keepers Quill Glue, poured clear embossing powder to it, then heat set it. I applied some shimmer to the hearts using a clear Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Glitter pen.

To mute down the colored background, I cut a 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" vellum. To create a ground for the houses, I adhered the copper colored washi tape to a scrap strip of card stock. I added texture to this washi strip by running it through the crimper tool. I have not used this tool for a really long time. Do you still have yours?

I adhered the vellum panel to the water colored patterned paper by applying adhesive to the back of the embellishments. This hides the adhesive and secures the vellum to the water colored patterned paper. 

Thank you for visiting my blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day! Stay safe!
