Hi friends. Here’s another cute card for Independence Day. This one is a little more involved than my previous card but was lots of fun to make. I haven’t used this Lawn Fawn Build-A-House Die in a while and it was time!
For this card, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 5-1/2 x 8-1/2″ and scored at 4-1/4″ to create the card base. I also cut another piece to 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ for the background.
I used Tim Holtz Salty Ocean, Faded Jeans, and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxides Inks to create a gradient background. Then used a mixture of Modelling Paste and Nuvo Glimmer Paste Moonstone with Scrapbook.com Fireworks 6×8 Stencil.
While that dried, I cut a piece of Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock to 2 x 5-1/4″ and diecut it with Lawn Fawn Grassy Border and colored it with Copic Markers. I used YG25, and G07. I die cut all the pieces for the house from Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock bwith the Lawn Fawn Build-A-House, Build-A-House Christmas Add-on Dies as well as the fence from the Honey Bee Stamps House Builder Card Base.
I colored all the pieces with Copic Markers as well. I used C00 for the house; C5, C7 & C9 for the roof; C3 & C5, Y13 & Y18 for the windows; R14, R17 & R29 for the door; C5, C7 & C9 for the stairs; B34, B37 & B39 for the awning; R29, Y18 & B37 for the window box flowers; C3 & 0 for the window box; R29 & B37 for the wreath and bow; and C00 & 0 for the fence.
I stamped the sentiment onto Neenah 110lb Classic Crest Cardstock with Catherine Pooler Designs Midnight Ink, added some Clear Embossing Powder and heat set it. I fussycut it and added it to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
I finished off the card by adding Tonic Fresh Snowfall Nuvo Glitter Drops to the door knob and the wreath bow.
I left the inside of the card blank.
