Cosy Home - Daring Cardmakers DT

Happy Friday!

I have a list as long as my arm to complete today - not sure what my chances are but I'm certainly thinking positive!

A new challenge has begun over on the Daring Cardmakers set by Miri to create a home inspired card - could be an animal, human or even alien home!

I've used the brand new Trimcraft Hey Baby range to make my New Home card.  I've die cut an aperture using the Christmas Gingerbread House die and fussy cut the heart element in the centre from the same pad.

I added lettering from one of the First Edition Alphabet sets and finished off with some gems.

Funnily enough this is now my go to template for new home cards.  I created this template when I joined in a challenge at the end of last year to use a Trimcraft Christmas pad for a non Christmas design.  This is what I came up with then:

Similar design but just added glitter washi tape and hearts - you know how I love a bit of sparkle!

You can find lots more inspiration HERE from the rest of the Design Team.

I'm at The Range in Enfield on Sunday doing demos from 11am with Trimcraft's latest collection.  If you happen to be around it would be lovely to meet you.

Have a great weekend,

Products Used:
First Edition Hey Baby Paper Pad
Simply Creative Adhesive Gems
First Edition Alphabet Die Set
Dovecraft Gingerbread House Die
All adhesive from Stix 2 Anything

Lovely card, the design of the house template is really cute, and I love how you can switch it up and give it a different feel just by changing the colours.
