New Home Happiness

My niece and her family moved into a new home this summer.  I still have not sent them a congrats card.  I decided to use the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge #59 to create a card for them.

For the base I chose Naturals Ivory card stock.  Another piece of the card stock was run through the Big Shot with the Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder.  I cut a strip of the keys paper from the Fan Fair designer paper, matted it with Crumb Cake card stock and attached it to the embossed layer.  Retired Rich Razzleberry ribbon was tied in a bow knot around it and the layer was then added to the card.  Four sentiments from the Fabulous Phrases stamp set that I thought would help convey my message were heat embossed on Naturals Ivory card stock using VersaMark, Rich Razzleberry ink and clear embossing powder.  I punched them out with the 1" Square punch and matted it with both Rich Razzleberry and Crumb Cake card stocks.  A Crumb Cake brad was added to a corner of each sentiment.  The sentiments were popped up with dimensionals.  This is a clean and simple card again, but if you ever have any questions about any of the projects you've seen, please don't hesitate; you can leave a comment or send me an e-mail.  Thanks for coming by today.
