Home sweet home
I actually stamped this week, then forgot to blog about it! I'm such a slacker. I had some binding left over (well, I thought I did... turns out I screwed up putting it on, so I may need to redo it anyway) from my quilt, and thought it was so cute and quaint and homey, I'd put it on a card. I love this house image from Papertrey's Boards and Beams set - I used it for my Christmas cards this year. This time, I stamped it in Dark Chocolate on white, then distressed it with Ranger's Distress Ink in Vintage Photo and Old Paper (Old Paper all over, then the darker Vintage Photo at the edges) and shaded the house just a bit with chalks. The old buckle probably came from a Stampin' Up Hodgepodge Hardware set a long time ago, but I don't really remember. It's kind of heavy, so this isn't a good card for mailing, but I think it looks cute, and would make a great housewarming card.
