Home Sweet Home


So, on to this week's Little Extra (from DCM) and another in our series of Boy Scout cards - you know - as in the scouting slogan "Be Prepared"! This time it's cards with a New Home theme.
Easy, eh? And, how nice are we? Helping you to get organised and always have the right card ready when you need it instead of scrabbling around to make one in a hurry!

Well, it just so happened that I had a need for such a card this week. I made the following with a 'cupboard door' fold on the front. Behind the door there is an old family recipe for Russion Tea Cakes - something to bake in the new home!

I used an orange card stamped with teal ink only for the frames, punched light orange card for the bg 'house' shape & doorknobs, and doodled the rest with copper gel pen. The scan didn't really do it justice - it is nicer in real life.
