A Home Sweet Home Card Using Wooden Embellishments

Hello, hello all and happy 2017! Have you made any resolutions to yourself? Any craft related ones? I really need to get into the habit of making cards in advance and having a 'stock', so maybe I will have a go at that idea!

A new year and a new home for a friend of mine, so my first make reflects this. Lisa has recently got some fabulous wooden embellishments in stock from Craft Emotions, so I had a play with some of these. They all take paint really well and don't need priming, so as well as being light, they are easy to work with.

I chose a beautifully detailed frame from the Frames with Ornaments Set, along with a house from the Home Sweet Home Set and painted with Turquoise Starlight Paint. I used Silver Starlight Paint to colour two little signs and two little keys, again from the same sets.

Turning the painted pieces over, I used some brads and Baker's Twine to 'string' the signs as though hanging within the frame.

I cut some dotty card and matching background card from the Anna Marie Designs range to form matts and layers for the frame.

I then fiddled with the elements before finally sticking down to my card base.

Very easy to do, with the embellishments doing the talking really! Have a play; those wooden packs are great value and you get loads in them too!
