A new home

This is a card I made the other day using the front of a shaped card matted on to the red card blank. I was going to leave the shaped card as it was, but the only piece that created a fold was at the bottom and I'm not sure that it would have survived handling ... and, in any case, it means that I've got the back of the card to use for a future one.

I masked off the roof so that I could run the 'wall' through my cuttlebug with the bricks embossing folder and I then swiped the embossed surface with fired brick distress ink, using the same at the top of the chimney with some brown corduroy lighted brushed on the roof.  With the addition of the sentiment and the mirror card door, the card was finished.

This is for:
