I'm a Ginger Snap Girl Blog Hop

Welcome to the 2nd I'm A Ginger Snap Girl Blog Hop!

The wonderfully talented customers of Ginger Snap Scraps have teamed up to bring you awesome projects and inspiration using the items they have purchased from the store!

If you are just joining us, please begin at the Ginger Snap Scraps blog here.

If you came from Yolie's blog then you are in the right place!

I bought this really cute mini paper pack from Ginger Snap Scraps from Bo Bunny called "Welcome Home Collection".  It's a 6" x 6" paper pack that has some really great paper that can be used in a LOT of different projects.  I decided to make a card:

Isn't the paper adorable??  I used some CTMH Chocolate and Bamboo cardstock to make the house on the front of the card and Chocolate cardstock to make the swirls on the inside.

To make the house itself, I used the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  You can find this image on page 42, C2, shift, < House > cut at 2 3/4" x 4" (using the Fit to Length key).  The swirls on the inside of the card were also cut with this cartridge and can be found on page 60, D10, font layer, < Tag4 > cut at 1" x 3" (again using the Fit to Length key).

The "welcome" on the front of the card came from the Bo Bunny paper pack.  I just cut the image out and glued it to the front of the card.  The "HOME" image came from a retired set from CTMH called "Around the Block."  Finally, the sentiment on the inside of the card "You make the world a better place" came from our July Stamp of the Month - Live Out Loud.  I also edged the entire card and the images using Chocolate ink.
