New Home - In a Frame

I made this card at the weekend and would like to enter it into the Try it on Tuesday blog Challenge which this week is "In a Frame".

I used Sizzix stamps and dies for the house & sun, a Stampin Up punch for the banners and Papermania paper.  The sentiment is from a set by Paula Pascal.

I cut a large circle of paper with a from a Tonic matting set.  Stuck the circle onto the front of the card then cut out a smaller die from the front of the card to make a frame.  The smaller circle was stuck on the inside of the card.

The house was cut out twice and the two were stuck together with a piece of silver thread and attached to the inside of the card so that it could hang behind the frame.  I needed draw the house on the back of one to match the front  and finally cut out a frame to cover the overhanging thread on the inside of the card to finish off.
