Well, I guess I'm really shocking a lot of you, 4 new projects in 4 days, and posted! I can hardly believe it myself. I really want to thank all of you who continually check out my blog when there is nothing new to see. And when by chance there is something, you are always so nice and encouraging. Ya'll give me a big boost. Now for the project.
I really had fun with this one. It just grew from a simple card, you know, the ideas just keep coming.
This is a gift for my nephew who just bought his first house and moved on his own. He's only 22 and he's like a "babe in the woods" when it comes to the everyday of having your own home. I think it will be a fun learning process. We'll all help.
I think this turned out pretty cute. I used 8 carts but that is no bother with the Gypsy. (I'm so glad I learned to use it) Here's the recipe:
George - 2 rectangles welded together for the card - card size 3 1/8 x 4 3/8
Handyman - house cut at 3.94
Stand & Salute - clouds cut at 1.0
Animal Kingdom - dog (labrador) cut at 3.24
Everyday pop-up cards - tree cut at 4.18
Create a Critter - grass cut at .84
My Community - small mailbox cut at 1.0, large mailbox cut at 20.41, fence (welded to card) cut at 1.71
Plantin Schoolbook - address numbers cut at 1,71
So this is my project. I love how it turned out. My husband was even impressed with the package decorations. Can't wait to give it to him at his housewarming Saturday.
I'm back. I just had to add some grass on the post of the mailbox. Now I'm happy with it.
Thanks for looking. Any opinions?
