Spellbinders Happy Birthday House

Hello friends, welcome and thanks so much for stopping by.  I have to start by saying it is still HOT here Down Under - we are having a heatwave and feeling it - I am very grateful for air conditioning and fans.  It is the perfect time to spend more time in The Studio and CASE (copy and share everything) another one of the cards I made for a publication over a year ago, I have changed a couple of things so it is not just a straight copy.  It is simple but that is one of the things I love about it - how about you!?

I have started by cutting/embossing the following dies from the Spellbinders Die D-Lites Prims Etched Dies the following: one rectangle in light Teal card stock, one triangle roof, door and window in dark teal textured card stock.  Next cut/emboss one star in silver card stock and one heart in  pink card stock. Lightly sand each of these die cuts using the sanding block.  Cut/emboss two white clouds from the Shapeabilities Rise 'n Shine Etched Dies My Little Red Wagon by Debi Adams

Tear the Authentique Paper pink patterned paper to form a hill, along with one light pink – making sure the ‘hill’ is offset when adhered to the patterned paper. Adhere to the base of light blue patterned paper Approx. 15cm x 11cm), to create ‘hills’.  Cut/emboss the layered patterned paper using the 5 x 7 Matting Basics A Card Creator Etched Dies #5 and layer onto a slightly larger pre-cut card base.

Adhere the Triangle to the top of the rectangle to form a roof, using double sided tape.  Pop up near the top of the ‘hills’ using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.  Glue the door onto the house, trim the window and glue to the right side of the house. Pop up the Heart also using 3D Foam Squares.  Adhere the clouds using double sided tape, tucking the right hand one under the house roof and trimming the left hand one in half before adhering.  Attach the star using double sided tape.

The sentiment from my stash has been trimmed and both ends dove-tailed, with the edges sponged using Imagine Memento Ink in Teal Zeal.  Next it has been popped up on the lower portion of the card front using Scrapbook Adhesives BY 3L 3D Foam Squares.
