WWC 318 - Kath's Challenge : All about Occasions


Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Watercooler Wednesday.
Kath is hosting and it's all about occasions, any you can think of, birthdays, graduation, anniversaries, congratulations and so on.
The design team have some wonderful inspiration for you, so I hope you can play along.

My son recently purchased his first house and I've been meaning to make him a card!
This one ties together a mish mash of dies that have been languishing in my stash unused, and a stamp lol!

The letters and house are coloured using distress inks. I double layered the letters for some dimension and the sentiments are clear embossed for shine.

I'm linking up to these challenges:

Dies R Us, anything goes. I've used Sizzix and Poppystamps dies.

Bizzy Becs store challenge, anything goes.

Uniko Challenge, anything goes with the option of diecuts

Dies: Poppystamps Clovis House; Sizzix alphanumeric stretch upper; Dress my Craft congratulations; trees unknown.
Other: Inspired by Stamping Big Congrats stamp; versafine nocturne ink; clear ep; distress inks.

Thanks for visiting,
Cathy x

This is a great new home card for your son Cathy and the sentiment stands out beautifully with the two layers. x

I love when objects take the place of a letter in a word, so this one is tops in my book.
