Hello Altenew friends! This is Virginia here. I am delighted to share a shape card project with you. Shape cards are simply eye-catching and playful. Today's post is to show you how easy it is to mass product these super cute shape cards in minutes!

11292021-Home Sweet Home Stamp & Die Bundle -Sweet Seasons Pigment Ink Bundle #5The Home Sweet Home stamp set comes with a sweet house shape and is perfect for creating a shape card. I started out with creating a colorful background with Altenew Pigment Ink.

11292021-Home Sweet Home Stamp & Die Bundle -Sweet Seasons Pigment Ink Bundle #1You can use the “Ink to Paper” approach by swiping pigment ink directly to paper. I used a Gel Plate and brayer to spread out the ink. The Altenew Pigment Ink are rich and vibrant and cane be easily mixed.

11292021-Home Sweet Home Stamp & Die Bundle -Sweet Seasons Pigment Ink Bundle #3I die cut 6 more pieces of house on Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock (110 lbs). To create a fold on top, I scored a straight line at the half inch mark with Crafter's Essential Bone Folder. Once you applied the 2 in 1 Glue Pen, you have a house shape card!

11292021-Home Sweet Home Stamp & Die Bundle -Sweet Seasons Pigment Ink Bundle -#7This is a fun project to do with the special little ones in your life. Imagine that you can use them as gift tags, house-warming card, hostess card sets, thank you cards, placement cards…etc. You can even create a Christmas village! I hope that you are inspired by these houses of cards! Thank you for stopping by!

Still don’t understand Virginia how the fold was made. Is it a separate piece of cardstock? Then trimmed to 1/2″, folded and glued? Which side? Does it matter? Or if not separate where did the fold come from?

Marilyn, you understand them correctly. The fold was made with a separate cardstock (in the house shape). I then scored and folded a line around 1/2″ at the top (doesn’t matter how you fold), then glued to the card front and that’s it! Hope this helps.
