Welcome to Your New Nest

The house next to ours sold several months ago and we've watched as the new owners have gone through the process of gutting and remodeling their new home.  But at long last our new neighbors have moved in so yesterday we walked over to meet them. I made them this house warming card along with a loaf of my favorite banana bread to welcome them to the neighborhood.

The sentiment was created on my computer and printed onto white card stock.  I actually printed it ages ago for this card, but as I ended up using a different layout for that one, this little sentiment strip has been sitting patiently on my desk waiting to be used. It worked out perfectly!

I also made the happy discovery that the nestabilities oval dies fit this bird image from Cavallini's Birds and Nests set exactly. The bird image is popped up with foam tape and then I tucked some ribbon loops underneath on either side.  I hope they like it!

Stamps: French Flair, Birds and Nests (Cavallini)
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, blue
Ink: Bliss Blue, Versa Fine Onyx Black
Embellishments: white satin ribbon
Tools: oval nestabilities

I love how all the various elements came together even though they weren't designed together as a set. Your computer sentiment is perfect! I bet your new neighbors loved the card and especially loved that banana bread!!

What a sweet card! I love how you used the Cavallini set paired with French Flair in the background. Plus your ceramic bird is adorable. Great idea to use your computer to print the sentiment, too.
