A Yellow House-Shaped Card

I’ve always given my clients cards and goodies when they close on a house purchase with me, and today I’m featuring one of the house-shaped cards I recently made for friends who were also clients.

Inside the card I added a lining with an Irish Blessing and a note to the couple.  The card was made using the Wild Cards cartridge on my Cricut Expression and I roughed up the roof with a sanding block.  I used Copic markers and a glitter pen to color the pots, made fuzzy trees with Flower Soft, added a brad for the doorknob and snagged a photo of them from Facebook to put in the door!

This next picture shows the six panel door-shaped envelope I made with my cartridge.

About Stephanie Chumbley

Growing up in the shadow of the Space Needle, I loved drawing portraits with a #2 pencil and sometimes a ballpoint pen because I liked the challenge. I collected pens and pencils and enjoyed looking at fonts and logos and replicating them by hand. I was in AP art classes in high school and took some graphic design classes at Seattle Central. While in college, I had a part-time job making signs for Drug Emporium / Longs Drugs with my "Steph Font." In my 20s, I made a lot of invitations for dinner parties and later, when I bought my Cricut Expression electronic cutter in 2008, I started making cards for all occasions. In 2009, I discovered Close to My Heart and enjoyed being my Consultant's best customer... but in May 2011, I finally gave in and became and Independent Consultant. It was a very good decision! :-) Nearly everything I make is given away or sold so others can enjoy some handmade art. I've made over 1,000 cards and projects and this blog serves as a way to share and hopefully inspire others to create projects of their own. Someday I hope to catch up and blog about all the cards I've made.
