Home Sweet Home Card

This card measures 5.25ins x 5.25ins and used a hand cut blank made from Kraft card.
Home Sweet Home Kraft CardThis card is typical FiddleFart less is more! The letters used came from a game bought at the village Easter Fair for just 50p, if the price is right, I can not resist an old game at car boots, charity shops etc. that contain letters,   I can always find a  use for them.
I love the “shabby chic”  naivety of the letters, not being centred and the buff colour of the card …. which, for me screamed  “Home Sweet Home”. 
Most of my time was spent getting the letters centred and balanced,  then all that was needed were two punched house shapes to finish the whole effect.  I was tempted to cover the letters with Ranger Glossy Accents but resisted in the end for a more “natural” look.
