Freshly Made Sketches #477

 Welcome to Freshly Made Sketches #477!

The square focal panel of Jen M's fabulous design, a new Simply Graphic die and five friends selling houses this week conspired to influence me into making a card that could be given to someone buying or selling a home.

The house is cut three times using two shades of Lawn Fawn Woodgrain cardstock and a scrap of red felt. The MFT Greetings & Salutations sentiment is heat embossed on the aqua panel before the house is assembled and adhered. It's always a challenge to match whites on a project and I was a little frustrated that the white embossing definitely took on a cream tone.

A square of the white woodgrain paper is cut along a diagonal line and adhered to the gray card base. I love the way the simple cut line adds interest to the design.

I hope you check out the terrific Clean Team Cards and play along with us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. The woodgrain paper is wonderful! Love that sweet diecut! Great card!

  2. So simple - but so eye-catching with all of the texture. And it has so much meaning!

  3. Amazing texture! I love the woodgrain but I'm really in love with the felt! I think I've got some felt around my craft room but I've never thought of putting it on a card. What a fabulous idea!

  4. No doubt, this is CAS perfection, Jacquie! This is such a simple but so striking design!


It makes my day when you take time to comment - thank you!
