Happy Monday…hope you had a wonderful weekend. Today I’m playing along with the Pals Paper Arts color challenge today….


This card is for a young couple who recently purchased their first new home.  I remember how exciting that was!

  • The card A2 card base is Dapper Denim cardstock.  To create the look of siding, I used the Simply Scored Scoring Tool(122334).
  • Remember the Hearth & Home Thinlits (#139666)…I almost forgot I had them! They created the double window.


  • The wreath is a die from the Swirly Scribbles Thinlits (#141497).  I cut and layered two of them from Crumb Cake cardstock.
  • The Jar of Love stamp set (#141587) and Everyday Jars Framelits (#141490) take all the credit for the fabulous flowers.  If you don’t already have this set, it’s wonderful.  Buy the Bundle (#142342) and save 10%.
  • The banner and sentiment is from the Thoughtful Banners stamp set (#141614) and is punched with the coordinating Duet Banner punch (#141483).  This is also available as a Bundle (#142330).

  • The inside sentiment is from the Cottage Greetings (#139962) stamp set and is perfect for the occasion.
  • Just a bit of DSP from the 2016-2018 In-Color Designer Series Paper Pack (#141408) and a strip of So Saffron cardstock complete the inside and the envelope flap.

Thanks for checking in on my project today.
