New house thank you {saturday creations}

Hi friends!

you will all laugh, but I had my own sunshine card all set and ready to go, but after Geri and Clare’s beautiful cards this week, I thought I’d save it until next Saturday 🙂  Great minds think alike, I guess!  Instead, I created this for you:

Even though I haven’t moved, don’t plan to move, hate the thought of moving, I created a thank you card for the newly-relocated, recently-gifted person.  A new house thank you card.

I used PTI’s barn die to create my folded card, but chopped the barn roof so it looked like a regular house roof instead.

I embossed the home with a striped embossing folder – I thought it looked a little cottag-y that way, like wood planks all across the front.

The roof was the only tedious part of the project:  I cut strips of paper with a scallop paper punch, and adhered them, starting at the base of the roof and working my way up.  Before adhering them, I sponged all of the edges – I love the dimension that gives the paper.

The sentiment, (from the thanks stamp set) is one big panel – isn’t it cute?  I colored in all of the squares (thank you for… the gift, being you, everything) but I added glossy accents to the square that reads: everything.  It’s much more obvious in real life, and a nice way to accent the panel you want highlighted most of all.

I hope you like it!  Have a great weekend!
