Today I have a First Home card to share that I created for Paper Craft Crew #300. I have never joined in on their challenges even though I look at them every week. Better late than never.

Paper Craft Crew # 300 Ginny Harrell celebrate the journey stampin up first Home

I needed a First Home card and wanted to keep it simple. This sketch fit that criteria.

I wanted my side element to be “off the edge” of this card so I cut the card base to 3 ½” wide so the lace element could hang off the side. I like the way the light can shine through the lace and the card will still fit in an envelope. See that cute home? It is from a Christmas stamp set. Our stamps are multipurpose.

Do you remember your first home? It was scary and exciting for us. I know my friend will enjoy receiving this card. I sure enjoyed creating it.
