New Home

When my middle brother moved recently, it was time for a housewarming card . . .

I love working with tag shapes and realized I hadn't played with any for awhile, so it was time to break out a few tag-shaped `dies and go to town.  The top tag swings freely which is a fun element I always like to add to layouts whenever possible.

But there was too much boring space around the large tags and I decided that a stitched frame in the same cardstock as the card base would add some subtle, textured interest that wouldn't detract from the focal point.

A wee little Glossy Accented heart tops things off with lots of love . . .
