Today I have been using the gorgeous Hearts Come Home stamp set with some very non-traditional colours for a quirky modern look.

I began by running a 5½” by 3¾” piece of Rose Red cardstock through the Big Shot with the lacy edgelit die. I love this die it gives such a cool effect. I then wrapped a length of Emerald Envy ⅛” ribbon around the panel, securing it to the back with Sellotape. I glued the whole panel to a Crumb Cake card base and stamped the sentiment from the Merry Patterns stamp set in Emerald Envy ink in the lower right hand corner.

I took a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the houses in Emerald Envy, Perfect Plum and Rose Red ink and added a tree in the Emerald Envy. I die cut the stamped houses using an oval from the Stitched Shapes framelits and added it with Tombow Liquid Adhesive to a scalloped oval die cut from Perfect Plum cardstock using the Layering Ovals framelits.

Using Stampin’ Dimensionals I centred the oval over the ribbon on the card front and added a bow made from the same Emerald Envy ⅛” ribbon. I really like the card and I think the colour combo works really well. What do you think?
