House card

I was inspired by another blog to make this card. She used this shape from Wild Card 2 and I was immediately convinced of how cute this cut actually is. I thought the 2 fluffy blue things by the house were weird trees. They really used strange colours in the instruction booklet. I pulled out my Cuttlebug to provide a little texture, and voila...fast card. Thanks for looking...Lee-Ann :)

i can definitely see why you thought this was a cute card... you i love the colors you used, and how you cuttlebuged the door and the roof (and the clouds), super cute.

LOve this! I was thinking about "house cards" the other day and wondering if I had one on a cartridge. My son and his wife just moved into their first home and I need to make them a card. Your timing and inspiration are just perfect for me! Don't be surprised to see this card pop up on my blog sometime in the near future...I love it and the papers you used are so much fun! Thanks for the inspiration my talented friend!

Your card is really sweet! This is a great idea for many occasions. I think your right about the clouds; sometimes those pics just aren't very clear. Glad you made it!
