Housewarming Card

Just a quick post this afternoon to share a card I made for a friend’s housewarming.  He is an older gentleman who has a definite style and would appreciate a handmade card.

I started with an A2 size card in white and topped it with Core’dinations Black Magic red card stock from a 6” x 6” stack.  It was pressure embossed with Darice’s Brick Pattern embossing folder and sanded to have the color show through.  Does a great job of imitating bricks I think!  The red side of the card stock was stamped with Technique Tuesday’s “Home is where the heart is” stamp set in Tsukinkeo Tuxedo Black.  To make the house (from the same set) pop a bit more on the design it is stamped on white card stock and fussy cut.  These panels are adhered with dimensional adhesive. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great fall!  I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
