A friend asked me to make a New Home card which of course I was happy to do but I sometimes find these requests a bit daunting particularly as in this case when I think I know what the friend would like but have no idea of the identity nor the tastes of the recipients. However I decided to go along with some stamping and die cutting to make this card which is a bit larger than my usual makes. The stamp was coloured using pencils and I embossed and sponged some card in a brick pattern for the background before cutting a square frame and adding some stamped and die cut roses. Fingers crossed it will meet with approval but I've also produced another card in a different style so that my friend can have a choice - watch this space.
