More Purple Onion cards...

Hello, friends! Thanks so much for dropping by! I wanted to share another card with Purple Onion Designs' newest release by Stephanie Ackerman.

Home Sweet Home arrived and I couldn't wait to try some paper piecing with this fun set. I pulled out the new Valise papers by Memory Box. It's a different look for Memory Box, and it's printed on kraft, so naturally, it was calling my name!


I stamped all the pieces on different sheets in the pack and assembled this little scene. I also used some washi tape from The Greeting Farm which fit perfectly as the ground and the colors matched, too. The background was stamped with Envelope Pattern from Hero Arts. I love how it gives the card some subtle texture.


Some pieces were raised on pop dots for dimension, and a bit of twine on the bottom was the finishing touch. There are several sentiments in this set. I think this card would be perfect for a housewarming, Father's Day, or just to say hello.

Hope you have a fun weekend, whatever you do!
