Paper Sweeties February Blast from the Past: Day 3

Thursday, February 15, 2018

Hello again, friends!  Just popping back in for the third and final day of Paper Sweeties' February Blast from the Past series.  A friend of mine and her children have been living a state away from their husband/father for more than a year now; and today, they were reunited in a new home and state.  She and her family inspired this next creation.
I started this card by anchoring a piece of multicolored, southwest, patterned paper, to the white, cardstock, card face, with soft yellow, straight, machine stitching.  I then wrapped it, horizontally, with a length of Cookie Dough seam binding ribbon, tied in a double bow and embellished with a single pearl, as well as a length of yellow twine, tied in a bow.
The "Congratulations on your new home" sentiment and house were stamped, in white ink, on Crumb Cake cardstock.  Light and dark umber colored pencils and mineral spirits were used to strategically shade it...
before Melon Mambo-embossing the chimney hearts.  The image was then framed with both Barely Banana cardstock and soft yellow, straight-threaded, machine stitching; backed with a snippet of cheesecloth; and popped off the surface of the card face, with foam tape, to complete the look.
That does it for this month, folks; but we'll all be back again the same time next month with fabulous, new goodies to share.  Thanks, as always, for all your visits and comments!  XOXO
