Make Memories

Happy new home little sis! My little sister just upgraded from her college studio apartment, of 3 years, to a much nicer place so, I made this card for her. She's been very into the olive green color lately and I didn't want this to be the standard 'new home' card. I picked the temple cut from the Pagoda cartridge. I decided to make this a gate fold 5x7 card using solid olive green paper. The printed paper on the front is from the K&Co. Amy Butler Belle stack. The temple was cut at 4 1/2" in black with a Cor'dinations shadow base in a pale blue whitewash that went really well with the look of the card. I actually had to cut the black twice because I ripped the first one. So, I used the squares that were cut out for the windows on both cuts and put them across the top and bottom of the card.

The inside, I used the same Cor'dinations whitewashed blue paper and some ribbon from We R Memory Keepers Urban Window Dots collection. The branch is branch2 also on the Pagoda cartirdge, cut at 2" and then I added the stamped the sentiment. I am really happy with it, as was she. :)
