What better way to do that than with a handmade card and cookies! The family includes two adorable little ones. They were so excited by chocolate chip cookies. I can't wait for better weather around here, so that I can get to see them outside playing. It's been such a cold winter here and we're all so tired of it all. I hope we're finished with the snow for the year.
The card I made uses the new Good Neighbors clear mount stamp set available in the Sale-a-Bration mini catalog. The designer paper is from the Welcome Neighbor pack also in the Sale-a-Bration mini. The two coordinate so perfectly and there's several color combinations to choose from. I liked the cheery look of these colors together.
To create the neighborhood scene, I stamped the houses in different colors right onto the white cardstock. I stamped the roofs on a separate piece of white cardstock and cut them out. I masked the base of the houses, stamped the clouds in the sky and sponged crushed curry ink around the edges of the paper. I then taped the roofs onto the card, popping the middle one up on a dimensional. I tied the ribbon using my tip from this post. Thanks for stopping by today!
