This week the brief is to:
make an unusual shaped card - no squares or rectangles allowed!
I was asked to make a new home card for a work colleague as her son and girlfriend have just moved house (he loves windsurfing, hence the board and strange shorts) and I was given a sketch of what their flat looked like - they are actually on the top floor and that's why I've only done three windows - it symbolises their floor.....!
I've used a template from Craftwork cards, and have used Fiskars embossing boards for the roof and bricks on the house, chalked and inked them and then added the windows over the top. The window frames have been cut with a concentric rough square Cuttlebug die with vellum added for the glass.
The little people are Sizzix die cuts and I've adapted some of the shapes so they would fit with the theme. The surfboard is my own template.
