Paper Piecing Fun

A friend recently moved into a new home and I sent this little welcome card.  Actually, it wasn't so little. It ended up as a 6x6" card to fit in the details.  I had fun making the window, shutters and door with the Cricut and then cutting the other items with my paper trimmer and decorative scissors.  I used her favorite Stampin' Up! designer paper for the draperies and the chimney. There are stamped clouds near the roof line but they didn't show up very well.  I stamped in just Whisper White - probably should have embossed them.  

I've had this card idea rolling around in my head for awhile but hadn't gotten it together until last week.  She was delighted with the card and I hope she will be very happy in her new home!

Ingredients:  Stamps:  Who Loves You by Hampton Arts; Inkadinkado for the flourish over the window (which I did emboss)
Ink:  Whisper White, Versamark
Cardstock:  Brocade Blue, Bashful Blue by SU!; Lemon Tart by PTI!
DSP:  Raspberry Tart by SU!
Gold brad by SU!
