Housewarming Cards and Ornaments

No Gravatar

When someone purchases a house with me, I like to thank them with gifts and a card personalized to loosely resembled the property they just bought.  Here are some of the cards I made, along with ornaments that match.  I even added Christmas tree inside the ornament that stands up and can be seen through the door and windows.

First I started with one of my favorite Sizzix dies I bought from Stampin’ Up! It’s a milk carton die and I have only made houses from it (bird houses and house ornaments) and I meant to make little milk cartons of goodies for Easter, but I haven’t seen this die since I made these ornaments! That’s a sign that I need to get more organized in my craft room.

As you can see above, I hand cut the windows and doors with my craft knife. Here is what the ornaments looked like once they were complete.  Tip: do not use Copic alcohol markers as the “trim” because they bleed.  I knew better!
