Houses and fence


Made for the Play Date Cafe Challenge, which has this picture as the inspiration:


Wouldn't you love to live there?  I immediately thought of my picket fence punch, and then my new Christmas set of houses from Hero Arts.  So using the colors as required, I stamped and pieced the 3 houses, added the fence and the sentiments.  I thought the little hearts were the perfect finishing touch, kind of like wreaths along the fence.

Supplies: white, red, turquoise, green cardstocks, versafine onyx black ink, Hero Arts CL464 Sending Holiday Cheer, CL189, Martha Stewart picket fence punch, heart buttons

  15. Hi Lin, a lovely card, I can't believe it when I loaded my piece up I noticed yours and we have obviously been having the same thoughts this week as I have used houses and the sentiment from our house to yours. Great minds eh. Lovely piece and the colours work beautifully. Tracy Evans x
