Home is Where the Heart Is

A couple of my friends just moved in together, and I'm going to surprise them with this housewarming card. The paper I've used to cover the house is from Toga:

The little insert with the birds stamped onto it is where I wrote the good wishes:

And I folded a useful stand so that the birdhouse can be displayed on their mantlepiece:


  1. what a gorgeous card, they'll be over the moon when they get this :)

  2. That’s lovely! I like the way how the birds are linked into each other. Great text too and so true…

  3. thanks Rachel - that's done by 'masking' - stamping the first image, then stamping again on a scrap piece of paper, cutting it out and covering the original stamped image, and then stamping another image slightly over the 'mask'. it's a great technique!
