Last Week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa – Home Together Dies

On this day in 2015, I held my first Card & Cuppa session in a local cafe. Fast forward 5 years and they are still running (currently remotely), with some attendees from those first few weeks still joining me.

For last week’s Card & (Your) Cuppa project I used the Home Together Dies.Home Together Dies. Project designed by Karen at HIPPOFROG Designs

I’d made this project for one of my regular attendees and they mentioned that they wouldn’t mind making one like it.

It’s a project that can be a New Home card, or a Christmas Card, depending on how it is finished.

The colour combination is Just Jade and Bumblebee In Colors, along with Mint Macaron and Whisper White.

First, a length of the Metallic Mesh Ribbon is added across the back of the project. I love using this ribbon in this way. It’s great for adding texture, especially as I’m currently unable to send stamped images.

Then, each house is assembled with the relevant heart or star insert.

These houses are then attached to the strip using Tear & Tape. As the ribbon has holes in it, the Tear & Tape manages to bind to the cardstock underneath.

Using Dimensionals, the car is aded between the houses, again with the adhesive sticking to the cardstock.

If making this a Christmas Card, the tree is popped on top of the car.

The sentiment sits on a length of Basketweave Combo Ribbon with a cut out from centre of the house.

Finally, a few Rhinestones are added for an extra touch of sparkle.
