Today I wrote a blog post about a Habitat for Humanity house built for a friend of mine. You can read about it, if you’d like to learn about the background story for this card: A Habitat for Humanity House, Built With Love.
I enjoy making cards for my clients and friends who buy homes from me. It’s fun to surprise them with a replica of their new home-made with paper and it’s enjoyable to customize the card with a photo of them in the window, or adding the appropriate Irish Blessing inside the card. I have just a few more house-related cards to make before sharing a blog post of all my house cards but until then, here is one very special house-shaped card I made for a very special family.
When my friend sent me the appraisal for his Habitat for Humanity house, I was happy to see a picture of the completed house. Here is the picture I used as a reference for my card:
This is the card I made (I blurred out the last name above the door for privacy). I remember seeing commercials on TV for Habitat for Humanity and the ad gets emotional when the new home-owner is given her key. A key in this context is the symbol of home ownership, so I attached an antique key charm to the card:
Finally, this is a picture of the happy family and me – notice my friend holding up the key and my card. 🙂 Click the photo if you’d like to see it larger.
Thanks for reading my blog!
