A Happy Hello

Happy Friday!  I hope you all had a great Valentine's Day. Today I have card that uses a die from the Valentine's release but for a different purpose - to welcome a new neighbor!
This card would be a fun way to welcome a new family to your neighborhood.
I started by cutting all the pieces from various colors of card stock.  I kept my main pieces in the blue family and used brown for the door, roof and chimney, yellow as accents for the windows and banner, and green for the foliage.
I glued my smaller pieces together first.  I find this works best for me, rather than gluing everything directly to the main piece.
When they were finished I glued them to the larger elements before assembling the card.
I cut a white square using the second largest of the Wacky Stitched Squares set and Hello using the Hello Phrase die.  I also cut a 5 x 5 inch square from blue gingham paper as a background for my card base.
I glued all the elements at an angle to the 5 x 5 inch card base.  My last step was to add Buttermilk Nuvo drops as "flowers" in the bushes in front of the house.

This house die is so much fun and be personalized in so many ways.  Right now it's on sale - along with the other dies in the Valentines and Spring releases!  But only for a limited time so visit the online store today.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have a fun and creative weekend.
