I've been wanting to use this house card from the Cricut "Wild Card" cartridge since I bought it. And I decided that making a house warming card for my friend Michelle that just moved was the perfect opportunity!
I used light brown cardstock for the house base and ran it through my Cuttlebug using the Mini Mosaic folder to give it the appearance of "stone". Then I inked the raised area to give it some depth. I cut out all the layers offered (door, window, roof and topiaries) and inked each of those as well.
On the door, I wanted to make a curtain, so I accordian folded a small piece of striped paper and adhered it to the inside of the door window. Then I added a "welcome" banner and attached the brads slightly closer than the length of the banner so that it would stand out a bit. Here's a close-up:
To make the card sturdier and to make the window look like a light was on inside, a cut the house in blackout mode 1/4" smaller than the card base and used those as mats on both sides of the inside of the house.
Thanks for looking and have a creative day! :)
