smile.

Don't these cards make you want to smile? :) Roree Rumph is back with her final March project for Ally Scraps, these two super cute cards. As always, such beautiful details and lovely hand cut shapes.




Congrats
1. Make a 4 x 5 3/4" card from a coordinating cardstock.
2. Cover the card front with the Fabric Store patterned paper.
3. Cut the Borders patterned paper to 3 3/4 x 5 1/2". Distress the edges with a file.
4. For the house, cut out the blue jounaling spot from the Noteworthy patterned paper to 2 x 2 1/2", a 1 x 3/4" rectangle from the Vintage Linen patterned paper, and a large triangle (about 1 5/8 x 3 1/4") from the Advertisement patterned paper. Distress the edges, and layer and adhere them to the panel.
5. Cut out six 3/4" long strips of paper and a 3" circle from the Lace Stripes. Distress the edges with a file. Adhere the strips at the corner of the panel, and adhere the circle over the strips. Trim off the excess patterned paper.
6. Apply the 'congrats' sticker to the panel.
7. Add decorative stitching to the sun, 'congrats' sticker, and grass line with yellow, red and green embroidery thread.
8. Cut out two hearts (with a die-cut machine or by hand) from the Tablecloth patterned paper. Distress the edges with a file, and adhere the hearts to the house shape.
9. Flatten the center of the flower, and adhere it to the panel. Apply the 'home sweet home' Tin Pin to the center of the flower. Thread a small red button with blue embroidery thread, and adhere the button to the Tin Pin.
10. Adhere the finished panel to the card.
