Moving Card Set

A very good friend of mine is moving out of California <tears> but I'm happy for her and her kids. They are very excited about this new adventure in life.

I made her 6 of these cards that she can use for thank you's or letting people know what her new address is.

I didn't end up doing a video on this but here's what I used to make it:

Card Base: 110 lb Recollections white card stock (A2)
Stamp Set: Doodlebug/Hampton Art
Distress Inks and Pens: Broken China, Peeled Paint, Walnut Stain, Gathered Twigs, Spiced Marmelade.

I stamped the clouds from on Ikadinkadoo masking paper and cut them out. I placed them on the sky area and used the Broken China to make the sky. I then removed the clouds and got the white cloud affect.
The houses, sun and tree were stamped on 110 lb cardstock then colored with the distress inks. I then cut them out by hand. I added Recollections foam dots on the back of the houses and sun but glued the tree flat down.
I used the Peeled Paint and a distress tool to color in the grass.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
