Home Sweet Home....

Hi folks... Well, we've come to the end of this Month Creative Expressions Design Team Goodies..

Hopefully you'll think we are ending on a good project!!? Well I certainly hope so, as this is also my project which I've posted and will be sent out to all Creative Expressions UK Stockist as a workshop inspiration project (gulp!!)
It's a little bit different from anything I have attempted before in its style and also its size.. The card is quite a "whopper" but as I wanted to make maximum impact that was just the way it turned out!!

I've used several of the Spellbinder Painted Lady Die to create a street effect

stamping my image on some complimentary card stock

and then cutting it out leaving a slight border as the image was too intricate to actually go right up to the edges of the stamp...

To allay any issues of the edge being totally visible, as it would be put on a Blue background,

adding the image to the same colour card stock makes it practically disappear...

Giving a very good effect and saves all the bother of trying to cut the image out completely!!! Result!!

Overall, I'm pretty happy how this turned out.. Something pretty individual and unique for someone moving to a new job or home...
Thanks for checking us out.
See you soon.
