Happy New Home

Today, I am sharing a 'clean and simple' new home card made for my nephew and his wife. 
They have recently returned to live in their house, after having an extension built.
As lots of changes have been made, I thought it would feel just like moving into a
new home for them.
The house die is actually longer than this, and includes another house and some trees.
I only wanted to use the one house, so I cut it in the brown card twice, glued them together
and then glued it to the black card to create a slight shadow.

The materials I have used are:-
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder - Wens Window
House die - Purchased from eBay
Crafts-Too punch - Heart 
Challenges entered:-
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Anything Goes
Cards in Envy - Give it some Heart
The Paper Nest Dolls Challenge - Anything Goes
Less is More - Dry Embossing

Thanks for visiting today.
