The Cutting Cafe House Shaped Card

Our project this week was to do the House Shaped Card cutting file or the Welcome Home printable set.  I decided to do the cutting file because I thought it was fabulous!  I cut the card shape and all of the pieces to go on it.  For the roof and chimney, I embossed each piece to give it a more realistic look.  (See close-up below.)  I decided to draw the curtains in the windows to make them look like real windows.  I also cut an extra window so that there would be a window on the first floor.  I added the door and the curtained window on top of it.  I used a small brass brad for the door handle.  I textured the house by sponging in different colors.  I cut the grasses with a file from the Silhouette Design Studio and glued it onto the bottom of the house.  I used a gel pen to make little dots to look like flowers.  I had so much fun making this card.  I can't wait to make more shaped cards from the Cutting Cafe.  You can see all of their files by going to this link:
