Welcome Home

Hi All! I have a little card to share with you today that I made for visitors at my church. Our current theme is "You are home." It's all about being part of a community. So in addition to the little gift we regularly give visitors, we are going to tuck in a little note. I thought the Welcome Home sentiment from Close To My Heart's Housewarming Hello stamp set was perfect for this project.


So let's take a look at the card:


At 3 1/2 x 5 inches, this is a smaller than standard notecard that I cut from White Daisy cardstock. I stamped "Welcome Home" in Sunset ink. For the panel, I layered Pear cardstock with patterned paper from the Penelope collection. I stamped the house image in Sapphire ink. The green banner is the backside of the blue striped paper, and the yellow floral banner is made from the zip strip at the top of the paper sheet. I punched the hearts out of white glitter paper that is part of the CTMH Gold Glitter paper pack, and colored one with my ShinHan Golden Yellow marker. I adhered them to the card (and each other) with Liquid Glass.

Here's a collage of close-ups:


I hope you like this little card. The house image is fun to color and the little flower is great for accents. 

And if you happen to be in DC on a Sunday, pop in to National Community Church--Georgetown and say hello!

Meanwhile, have a wonderfully creative day!

  1. Aww,this is adorable, Kim! I love the 3.5x5 card base size. There's something so cute about that smaller format. It really has become sort of my favorite size lately. Love the bright colors you used and that little house image is so sweet! Love the mix of ink colors you used, and love that you stamped the house in dark blue instead of the traditional black. Just something different and fun!
