Let's Celebrate - Paper House Box

Hello everyone. I am sharing a project that I have completed for the Shabby Tea Room Labor of Love challenge. For this challenge you are asked to create a card or project inspired by the COLORS IN THE PHOTO and INCLUDE A BANNER!

Labor day is not celebrated in Australia, so I did a little bit of research. I read that there are lots of decorations and parades on this day. I felt that from the inspiration photo, I would decorate the front of a house and have a house card as my submission....well I got a little bit carried away and created a house instead! I stamped a sentiment and die cut a fancy tag and placed it above the door with some foam tape. The scroll adds a nice touch to the front of the house.

I have a range of digital papers that include a wood styled background paper, perfect for a paper house. I die cut some shapes to create the windows. I also printed a selection of  digital papers and cut our fishtail banners from these.


Paper House template: House of Cards

Paper: Brandy Murray Back Porch kit, DCWV neutral stack, 4th July freebie, Retro Zing red, white and blue papers

Stamps: Waltzingmouse Oval classic frames, JustRite Stampers Just Because set

Ink: Distress ink walnut stain and old paper

Other: Spellbiinders shapeabilities fancy tags, Spellbinders nestabilities classic squares small, circles small and rectangles small, Hooked on Craft flowers, Martha Stewart branch punch , My Minds Eye twine, Die-namics woodgrain fence, Stampin' Up punch.

Thanks for stopping by!
