Modern Landscape Love

Today I wanted to share a card with you that I made for a Papercrafts call that didn't make the cut. I have to say that I'm a bit relieved this one got to stay home with mama!  The colors, the charming house and trees, and that font (that font!), all make me really, really happy and it would've been hard to let this one go.    
Since I got this die, I can't stop using it.  It's called "Modern Landscape" and it's from Memory Box.  I also have the sister version "Country Landscape" that has more houses and pine trees instead of these mod ones.  Both of the dies are THE BOMB. 

The font is something I downloaded (for free!) from dafont.com.  I'm picky about fonts and can never seem to find what I want in a premade stamp.  Dafont.com and myfonts.com are great sources for new and fun fonts (just a warning though, myfonts is a pay-per-font site).  
Since I saved the mask I used for the sunrays, I'm going make a few more of these cards.  Next time, I'll leave off the foam tape so I can send them safely in the mail.   But for now, I'm happy to get to keep this card all to myself:)  Hope everyone has a great weekend and thanks for visiting!

  5. The mask was just sketch out by hand and cut with a craft knife and a ruler. Super easy to do because it's all straight edges.
