House Warming Invitations

Hi everyone! I am here to share three cards I created for a Canvas Corp crew challenge.


I used the 6"x6" Black & Kraft Cardstock Paper Pack which is perfect to make 3"x6" card bases with. The photo below is how I created the "peaks" of the house roof and once I measured and cut I folded sides to the inside of the card and adhered the edges along with the bottom edge to create a pocket.


I painted the Farmhouse Christmas Holiday Door Tag with Silk Glimmer Mist and Mint Julip Glimmer Mist...I sprayed this on a deposable tray and then painted onto the door. The wreath I used Moss Glimmer Mist and I let the tags dry.


I used scraps of Blue & Ivory Mini Dot Reverse, Green & Ivory Dot Reverse, Tan & Ivory French Script and I used the back side of Santa's Journey: Roof Top Cardstock to decorate the doors and to create banners for the welcome sign which was printed from the computer. Also I pulled threads from a piece of Natural Burlap to make the bows which I adhered to the bottom of each roof.


I added to the roof of each house scraps of lace, pom pom trim and rich rac and then finished off with buttons, sequins and a flat back pearl. The invite I printed from the computer and then cut to size to fit inside of the house.
If you have any questions about this project please let me know.
