Welcome Home!

Supplies: Docrafts kraft card blank, Papermania acetate with design, 
Tim Holtz die, Papermania textured cardstock - pink, PTI sentiment, 
clear heart gem, tape runner, PTI cloud die and adhesive.

Those of you participating in Summer Card Camp 2011 will have seen the wonderful video that Jennifer McGuire posted earlier this week with stamped acetate as part of the card front.  It inspired me to make this card for my SIL who returns today from Toronto (having lived there for 4 years).  I wanted to have a card made so my boys could welcome their "Auntie" home.  

I added the strip of green leftover pp for a pop of colour and to "ground" the row of houses.

Thanks so much for peeking and I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Gorgeous card, Deirdre - I love the white clouds, the acetate and that lovely row of cut out houses.

Have just sent you an email, btw.

What a lucky sister-in-law to have this card welcome her home. The patterned acetate makes a gorgeous platform for the die-cut houses.
