I focused on the textures of the houses this time.
I used a Tim Holtz brick wall embossing folder with brown/pink Coredinations paper and sanded it to expose the pink core. A piece of purple cardstock was embossed with a Paper Studio folder to mimic the wood siding usually found on Victorian homes. The window panes inspired me to stamp and heat emboss the pink panel with a Library Ledger stamp from Papertrey Ink.
I adhered the three panels to a piece of scrap paper and then cut the whole piece on the diagonal. My original plan was to stop here, but it just didn't look finished.
I cut a few strips of Crate Paper designer paper with a My Favorite Things Squiggle Border die. All the edges are inked with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.
This versatile sentiment is from the PTI Mega Mixed Messages stamp set.
In the end I love the card, but think it looks more like a series of highrise condo's than the Victoria houses in the Trigger!
