Hi friends! I have one more card for this month to share that uses the April Gardening and Gardener digital sets by The Greeting Farm. I used Photoshop to set up my scene and everything was colored using Copic Markers and then I splashed on watercolors in black and gold to create the splotchy look. I listed the Copic marker colors I used below.

New Home Card

I thought it would be fun to create a “new home congratulations” card using these digis. I always have a niece or nephew that is buying or building a home and this one will definitely get used soon! I added phrases using Photoshop and two fonts I had on my laptop. This card is a 5″ X 7″ A7 card size and lays flat for mailing.

First, I printed my scene on Neenah 80lb cardstock and used a ruler and marker to create the siding on the house, behind all of my elements. I wanted this to look like it was the back porch with a door and windows to the home, off a wood deck platform or covered porch. A potting bench/table sits up along the back of the house as well as a stool and potting essentials. Fresh cut flowers are laying in a wicker basket ready to take inside to arrange into a table centerpiece. The table and bench are from the digi set, Build-A-Kitchen digi set and the door and windows are from the Porch digi set.

To the right of the door is a shelving unit with seedlings that are sprouting as well as a potted flowering planter. I added a wood-looking floor to ground the scene. This could be deck boards of the back porch. Here are the colors I used to color this scene:

  • Wood decking and wood moldings/trim: E59, E57, E55, E43
  • Plants/hose/doormat: YG67, YG03, YG00
  • Potting bench: YG99, YG67, YG63, YG61
  • Stool: E57, E55, B99, white gel pen
  • Planters: B99, B45, B41, B21, white gel pen
  • Window planter: YR27, YRo4, R14, white gel pen
  • Seedling pots and dirt: W9, W7, W5, E59, E57, white gel pen
  • Siding: C3, C1
  • Back door: C9, C7, C5, C3,
  • Windows: C3, C1, BV000, BV00, white gel pen
  • Basket: E59, E57, E55
  • Flower Buds: YR68, Y19
  • Fertilizer bag: B99, B45, B41, Y19, Y15, E55, E43
