Happy Home

Hello and welcome to my Happy Home!  Alicia here, I had such a blast creating this little scene.  I love working with all of the Karen Burniston dies, they compliment each other so well.  Here I have used the latest House & Fence Pop Up with the tree and leaves from Tree Pop Up.  I also used the Happy from Word Set 3 Holiday. I used Frantic Stamper Stitched Waves as the clouds across the top.

I followed my own advice and created the mechanisms of this card in basic white card stock first.  I find it so helpful to learn the folds and make any mistakes on plain card stock before I use my good stuff.  I did begin with white card stock.  I inked one side with blue ink to create the sky background.  I layered my clouds across the top.  I used green card stock for my floating platform to make a nice green yard.  I cut and embossed the house highlighting the embossing with some chalking inks to make the stone and siding pop.

Here's a closer view of the house.  So many little details really make for an exquisite card.  I am sending this out to my sister who recently moved.  I tried to use the colors of the home she purchased.  I was just winging the sold sign.  I used some of the left over flocked leaves from my last project to sprinkle in the tree and a few on the ground.  I used a little more of the flocking on the wreath on the door.  I also used a chipboard die cut behind the tree since the wood grain paper I used was paper, not card stock, my tree needed some extra sturdiness.  Finally I inked just a little yellow in the windows to simulate glowing lights.
