Woodware UK: Wishing You Luck

The Woodware UK team is switching gears this holiday/Christmas creations. This week we're wishing for a bit of luck...whether it be by a gamble, a new event, or preparing way in advance for a leprechaun visit.

I thought that I'd go with a card wishing good luck for a new home. Such an exciting time in any individual or family's life, and it's always appreciated when you show that you understand their excitement by sending a card (with maybe a gift card for shopping included).

 I chose to use this darling design by Francois√© Read for Woodware, "Love Birds". I embossed the image in white embossing powder on a scrap of kraft cardstock, as well as over the top of my layers of paper panels. I added more color with Sakura Gelly Roll pens, and layered the bird house with foam tape atop the card.

The sentiment was created by applying Peel Off Small Text in silver to the heart on the house, and stamping "New Home" from the clear stamp set. Then it was up to me to hand write the "in your" with a Gelly Roll pen. When you haven't quite got the perfect sentiment in your crafty stash, it's nice to have a smooth-flowing ink to do it yourself!

The next two weeks the individuals on our team will be taking a holiday, but there will be some wonderful samples to whet your appetite for new designs in January! So, be sure to squeeze in some time with the Woodware blog, and leave comments on your favorites!

Meanwhile, from me to you...have a very happy Christmas and a lucky new year!
