Hello!

I made this 'New Home' card for one of my best friends who has recently moved house. She's a big fan of cats and all things vintage, so I'm hoping this ticks a few boxes. If this card is a hit then I'll attempt a circus themed card for her birthday later this month!

Here it is:


A couple of progress shots:






The backgrounds I printed out onto regular printer paper and glued to the card template.

The gorgeous print I used as the border at the front was a free download from deviantArt member freaky665 (here's the link, it's a pack of five textures:  http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=&section=&global=1&q=Victorian+grunge+texture+pack#/d22vzq1).
The lovely key background and vintage cat image I downloaded (again, free) from a blog called VintageFeedsacks (http://vintagefeedsacks.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/Backgrounds).

I used sticky foam to attach the ribbon with the key and to give the whole thing a bit of depth.
Unfortunately I don't yet have any stamps or ink, so any inky bits are from my trusty felt tip pens!

I don't usually dabble with paper craft unless there's a specific event coming up, and this time was no exception (apart from the fact I remembered to take pics)! I really enjoyed making this, so I may have to make a few more soon  Smiley

Hope you like, and I'd gratefully accept any hints or constructive criticism that'll help me improve!

 That is a beautiful card! Absolutely stunning. I am sure she will love it and I can't wait to see the circus one!
