Created this Welcome Home card using Cricut cartridge Spring Cottage for the Gazebo. Used the Paper Studio Bricks embossing folder on the Gazebo that you can see somewhat in closeup photo & looks nice in person. Popped up the Gazebo with foam adhesive to give it dimension. Used a sketch which you can see below. For the sentiment I cut a Paper Smooches stamp in pieces. Use to be afraid to cut stamps but no more. Discovered that the only problem I have when I cut a stamp in pieces is that ink gets on the edges that I wipe off before stamping and I always practice with the stamp. Stamped PS Sun, fussy cut it out & popped it up. Used felt (my fuzzy). Added gems.
