Empty Box Project # 33 - New Home Card


Did I mention my daughter likes to 'challenge' me to make cards at short notice?  This time she needed 'a new home card for my friend who's moved into a cottage in a village' . 'When do you need it for?' 'Five weeks ago'.

The cottage and cat stamps were just about to be discarded from my Empty Box Project box  They are part of a 'build a country scene' set that was free with a magazine and I didn't think I would use them. The challenge was to make a card suitable for a 21st c young woman.

Enter my old friend - paper-piecing- with bright, colourful scrapbook paper, a sentiment from Little Clare, some scribbly colouring using markers, a glittery banner ( cut from the scrapbook paper and stickled), and a flower with a embellishment saying 'new' (very old from my stash).

I'd like to enter:
Creatalicious - old papers and embellishments , new home theme and stamps are not used before 
Cute as a Button  new beginnings
Creative Card Crew anything goes
Love to Scrap  anything goes

  2. Usually one discover the need of a stamp AFTER having gotten rid of it, but this time the request was late but timely. I think the roof of the cottage looks fun paper pieced and you put that very old embellie to good use.
    Wishing you a lovely Christmas. In Norway Santa will arrive after Christmas Eve dinner and all presents will be opened tonight. I guess you'll have to wait one more night:)

  3. I feel like your empty box should be getting really empty by this point! You keep pulling out more and more treasures! Your cottage and kitty look fantastic! I like the addition of the pennants. Great card for this occasion.
