New Home

New Home card for friends who have recently moved.

I used a Marianne Designs cross stitch die and cut the shape with a Spellbinders 'Postage Stamp' die.  After cross stitching the design with crochet cotton, I layered the postage stamp die cut on a red mat.  The 'keys' embossing folder is an old one and I'm not sure of the brand.

I am joining in the following challenges:


  1. A fabulous New Home card Liz

  2. Beautiful design, love those goreous colours. Have a lovely Sunday. xx

  3. Another little work of art Liz, a lovely card to receive, many thanks for sharing at Allsorts 'Add a Heart' theme this week.
