Homey Thank You

Homey Thank You
My family are planning to go to Singapore mid next month to visit my my daughter's godmother who is also my childhood best friend as well as some of my in-laws relatives. We will be staying at my cousin-in-law's house. Thus, I make this card for her and her family as a gesture of thanks on their generosity and hospitality.

Sketch Saturday Week #222
This card layout is inspirational from Sketch Saturday Week #222 sketch/challenge as shown above. It has inspire me to create a scene of a house with sun, clouds and flowers. The house is perfect for this card since my family will be staying at my cousin-in-law's house.

Close-up : The sun and clouds
The sun is stamped on an orange card stock and trimmed accordingly. The clouds are stamped on white card stock and trimmed as well. Then, the sun and clouds are arranged on a blue card stock which represent the sky. A blue lining is added to the clouds to make it pop-up from the skyline. A pattern paper from Lawn Fawn Bright Side that resemble grass is used as the house's lawn. 

Close-up : Paper pieced house
I use a house image to represent the image location in the sketch. The house is stamped on a white card stock and some pattern papers. The image of the house on the white card stock and pattern papers are trimmed accordingly. Then, I paper pieced onto the house stamped on the white card stock. 

Close-up : Glossy window glasses
The windows and door are paper pieced using white card stock and colored using Copic markers. I added some glossy accent to the window glasses. This is my first time using glossy accent since I bought it some times ago.

Close-up : Ribbon that resemble grass and flowers
As for the ribbon ruffle location, I used a ribbon that resemble grass and flowers which is just coordinate the scene. The pre-arranged skyline and lawn is attached onto a yellow card base. The house is attached onto the scene using dimensional foam as the ribbon itself has some dimension to it.

Close-up : The perfect sentiment for my coming situation
The sentiment is stamped on a yellow card stock which has the corners rounded. Some faux stitching are added around the sentiment. It is later layer on a blue card stock which has the corners rounded as well. It is attached onto the card base as in the sketch using dimensional foam.

Dimension : 12.7cm x 19.05cm or 5" x 7.5"
Type : Vertical fold
Inlay : None
