Another New Home Card with CTMH Central Park-Cardmaking

As promised yesterday, here's another card using Central Park-Cardmaking for a new home card. This one also uses the Artistry cartridge, which is my all-time favorite, and yet I sometimes forget about how many great images are on these cartridges because I'm having too much fun with stamped images.

My friend moved into a townhome, so I wanted to give the card a city feel. I sized the row of houses to 5.5" wide and then started messing with it. The image comes with two cut out hearts, but I only wanted one...and not on either of the houses pre-programed into the image. I selected the image, clicked on the Contour button, and filled in the hearts. I then copied and pasted the image twice, using the Flip button on one of them. After selecting the Shapes feature, I added a heart, sized it, and sliced it into the townhome shaped image on the right. After I cut the rows from three different papers (patterned ones from Central Park Paper), I backed the cut-out heart with Red Glitter Paper. Of course, once I was done fussing with all of that, I realized I could have just cut a heart from the glitter paper and glued it on top.

Yeah, sometimes I over-complicate things.

Anyway...I then die-cut the sunny yellow background (also from Central Park Paper) using MFT stitched frames. I backed the yellow with Pacifica cardstock cut 1/8 inch larger than the yellow then glued my three rows of houses down. The final step was stamping the half-circle sentiment from Central Park-Cardmaking in Pacifica ink. I then glued all of it to my card base.

To finish it off, I stamped "New HOME" on the inside using Pacifica ink.

Here's the supply list (with embedded shopping links):
Isn't that just so bright and cheerful?  I think my friend will get a smile out of it.

Off to do more writing. My morning was nuts with doctor appointments. Nothing serious, just that routine stuff we women have to put up with annually. Yeah...

Until next time,
