A New Home Card

This post features some spoilers from the NEW AUGUST - DECEMBER MINI CATALOGUE which launches on 4th August 2020.

That's right!  One of my favourite perks as a Demo is being able to order a full month earlier than the catalogue launch and I was delighted to get my hands on some of these products in my pre-order.

This card features a new set of dies called HOME TOGETHER, which is part of a suite you are going to love.  Stay tuned for further peeks with this set in the next week or so.

The dies cut out various house silhouettes as well as trees, a car and some other cute features, which all work together for scene building fun.

Here I have used the largest of the house dies in simple and modern way, showing that this set works outside of its catalogue styling.

The PLAYFUL ALPHABET dies, from our current Annual Catalogue, work superbly with this shape to allow the word H-O-M-E to fit in relief inside the house.  This cut-out effect displays more of the IN-COLOUR DSP behind it, helping the letters to really stand out.

I used more letters to spell the word N-E-W above this in matching MISTY MOONLIGHT DSP and popped these up on the some of the new FOAM ADHESIVE SHEETS.  Oh my goodness, this stuff is absolutely what I have been missing in my craft room - I love it!!

Finish it all off with a flat knotted length of MISTY MOONLIGHT IN-COLOUR RIBBON and you are done!

This card is for a dear friend and previous neighbour, who is moving out to Cyprus on a posting.  I will miss seeing her around and grabbling a coffee after the school run (though this has sadly not been happening since lockdown anyway).  I know she and her family are going to have a fabulous time out there in the sun, sea and sand - not a bad gig eh!

my tutorial for this card, taken from my Facebook LIVE, is here
