Happy new bachelor pad!


I made a happy new home card for my Dad who has moved house. I don't have any stamp sets that would directly be for new home cards, so they always require a bit of imagination. This time I was inspired by the sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch (although I did rotate the sketch into landscape instead to fit my image), the colours over at Color Throwdown, the inspiration image over at Just Add Ink and the elemental inspiration over at Daring Cardmakers (I was inspired by the wooden frames, the wooden wall for my background and the blue wall for the blue banner in my cars). 





Card: White 300 gsm card, kraft card, scraps of Pistachio Pudding and Soft Sky card
Stamps: Stampin' Up Hardwood, Nuts About You and Alphabet Rotary Stamp
Ink: Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip, Crumb Cake, Soft Sky, Marina Mist, Pistachio Pudding, Calypso Coral
Other: Lawn Fawn Congrats scripty die, Stampin' Up Banner punch, Stampin' Up Basic adhesive pearls (coloured with a brown Sharpie)

Lovely card! I like the combo of rustic wood and the sweet bird. The "new nest" is a great idea for a welcome home card. Thanks for playing along with the Daring Cardmakers this week!
