Today I have a special card to share with you that I have made for someone that has moved into our neighbourhood and in my street. I wanted to make a card to welcome her to our friendly neighbourhood and Amazing Paper Grace had the perfect dies to do this. I have used the Amazing Paper Grace Make a Scene collection – in particular the Amazing Paper Grace Make a Scene – Cozy Home Dies. I just love all the details and textures in these dies. I have also added a couple of cats from the Amazing Paper Grace Rolling Along Scene dies as these are coming soon to the household. And to finish the card I have added some Amazing Paper Grace Layered Cherry Blossoms to remind her that it was spring when she moved in. These are not colours I normally use but I am really pleased at how they worked together in this card.
Dies were provided by Amazing Paper Grace for today’s creations.
I have used grey cardstock to make the card base using the Amazing Paper Grace Make a Scene Card Base dies. I have added some scenic pattern paper in the background to create my scene background and used acetate to hold the sentiment so the background is not blocked. For the house I have added yellow cardstock behind the windows and white trims to the windows and a white door. I also die cut the bottom half of the house out again in green cardstock to create grass. The fence has been die cut in white and I also added some green grass in front of the fence using the grass die from the Amazing Paper Grace Rolling Make a Scene Along Dies.
The measurements for the inserts are:
Back insert – acetate is 4 3/4″ x 3 1/4″
Middle insert – House is 4 3/4″ x 2 3/4″
Front insert – Fence is 4 3/4″ x 1 3/4″
For the front of the card scene I have added a white scallop frame and a blue rectangle decorative frame from the Amazing Paper Grace Scallop Facade Frame Dies. The blue frame is the same colour in the background paper and tides the whole card together.
To finish the front I have added some pink and yellow cherry blossoms from the Amazing Paper Grace Layered Cherry Dies.
The Make a Scene interactive section has then been added to a top folding 5″ x 7″ grey card base. Inside the card I have added a piece of white cardstock to write on and made a label using the Amazing Paper Grace Elegant Adornments dies out of white and grey cardstock. I have also hot foiled the ‘Welcome to the Neighbourhood’ sentiment from the Amazing Paper Grace You Are My Home Hot Foil Plates on grey cardstock in blue foil.
