New Home

Hi and welcome!  Today's Freshly Made Sketch is courtesy of Jen Mitchell and I used it to create a card for my nephew and his partner who have just moved into a home together. 

This card came together pretty quickly because that big floral element is washi tape die-cut with a co-ordinating die.  I adhered the tape onto some white cardstock before die-cutting it.  The black card base was foiled with a square foil die and gold foil.

The sentiment comes from two different companies and was stamped with two different colours.

Finally I added the floral panel and sentiment with foam tape.

Thanks for visiting.  The DT have some gorgeous cards so I hope you'll check them out.

Products used:

Stamps:  Essential Sentiments (MFT), Neighbours (WP9)
Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Fuchsia (Altenew)
Cardstock:  Black, White
Dies:  Painted Peony Mix (Pink Fresh), Foiled Frames Square (MFT), Essential Slanted Sentiment Strips (MFT)
Accessories:  Painted Peony Mix Washi (Pink Fresh)

Not sure what I like better - your card or your nails!! Both are smashing! The black and gold are fabulous as a backdrop!

I think I chose the wrong washi! So pretty, Karren!

This is so gorgeous and I love that it's washi tape. I recently got a big, wide roll of washi from Altenew and I seriously contemplated using it in a similar way on my card this week. I wonder if wide washi is going to become the latest "thing!"

What gorgeous washi. The card is really pretty Karren.

Beautiful bouquet of flowers, Karren! I love how it pops against the black card base and your sentiment is so clever!

Wow what a great way to use the Washi Tape. Your card is beautiful.
