Welcome Home Pop-Up Card

Hello there, craft buddies 🙂

I made this lovely “Welcome home” pop up card for Yuval, my husband’s colleague and friend. He had just finished building his house, and we came over to have a first peek at their new love nest.

I love this card. It’s simple yet elegant, and you can decorate in different ways for different occasions – the surrounding of the house can reflect the season, it could be a candy house or maybe a gingerbread house for the holidays.

Sooo… Who wants a tutorial? Ha ha… I knew you would! I’m working on a great and easy how-to for this card, coming real soon.

Have a wonderful day,
