From Our House to Yours and Holiday Haul – A Different View. Sadly, some of the first people who befriended us when we moved to the village nearly 5 years ago, have just moved to a new home. They have not moved that far, but it is still a real loss to the village. Of course we will all try to keep in touch and I am sure we will see them at village events from time to time. But an occasion like this needs a card to mark the occasion.
When I had a look at the stamp sets I have, nothing instantly jumped out as being appropriate, that is until I looked at From Our House to Yours and Holiday Haul (a Host Set). The variety of houses in From Our House to Yours seemed perfect for a ‘New Home’ style card. Add the truck from Holiday Haul as a removal van (with some poetic Licence!) and I knew I have the perfect solution.
I built the scene from right to left, with the right hand side being the New Home (as the truck drives from left to right). The first stamps were for the new home, then I added the truck and the old house. The truck had to be in the foreground because of its size in relation to the houses. I used the large parcel image to act as packing cases and simply stamped the first one as near to the cab as possible and then masked this and the truck off before adding the second one.
The finishing touches were some trees and basic Rhinestones. I added the Rhinestones around the house on the right and to the truck to try to signify that this is a positive move. Do you think it worked?
I picked out Real Red and Pacific Point as my card base and mat colours. The first one had a Real Red mat and a Pacific Point card, but I switched those round for the second version. Which do you prefer? Can you guess which one I sent? Why not leave a comment to let me know?
