From Our House to Yours

Here's my card for this week's sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  I used stamps and dies from The Cat's Pajamas to put this one together.

From Our House to Yours card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from The Cat's Pajamas
My focal image is a sweet birdhouse, made by piecing together one of the birdhouses from the CutUps Birdhouses die set.  I went with one of my favorite color combos here--red, aqua, and kraft.  I used foam tape to adhere the birdhouse over a kraft banner strip, cut with one of the CutUps Framed Up 2 dies, set across a coordinating dotted patterned paper panel   The "from our house to yours" sentiment from the Round the Chimney set was stamped directly on the patterned paper panel, just beneath the banner strip.  I accented it with a trio of different sized red enamel dots.

Materials Used:
Round the Chimney stamp set, CutUps Birdhouses and Framed Up 2 dies (The Cat's Pajamas); Versafine Onyx Black ink (IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko); Sea Glass cardstock (Avery Elle); Kraft cardstock (WPlus9); Poppy Parade cardstock (Stampin' Up!); Record It-Here Is Happy 6x6 paper pad (My Mind's Eye); red enamel dots (Eyelet Outlet); foam tape
