My husband and I recently worked with a lovely couple and helped them purchase a beautiful home. We attended their wedding and on their special day, I gave them this Mr. and Mrs. card along with this wall art.
I broke out my new Close to My Heart Claire Paper Packet for the first time and used it for this 12″ x 12″ project. Using the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge, I cut out the nine houses and the sentiment. I had to use a ruler, a triangle and my ruled self-healing cutting mat to get everything straight. I’d like to go tell the young me that yes, you will still use math as an adult someday – even in your hobbies!
I used some Natural Hemp and a Piercing Too to hand stitch through each house. I think it took me about three hours to make this piece of wall art. Next time it would take a little less time because I wouldn’t have to play around, guessing what size to cut everything. I’d say laying everything out straight and hand-stitching nine houses took the most time, but it was worth it to make a special wedding gift.
