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.
