A little house card

I saw a card in a stamping magazine and thought it was all too cute.  Here is my version.  To make the roof I crimped 5 pieces of Early Espresso Textured card stock.  I then made a scallop border using the Scallop Edge Border Punch.  I put some SNAIL Adhesive on the scallop borders and lined them up the way I wanted them.  When my roof was all lined up the way I wanted it I then cut both sides at an angle with my paper cutter making a tip at the top.  Once I was happy with it I glued it down to the House part.  For the chimeny I cut a piece of Early Espresso smooth card stock into a rectangle and positioned it where I wanted it.  For the windows I cut 4 1" x 1" squares out of Baja Breeze card stock.  The door is an oval shape with part of the end tucked into the grass.
To make the green grass I just did random cuts along a piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock using my scissors.

I am going to use this card as one of the sample real estate cards that I sell to real estate agents.  It will be upoloaded to my INKspired Greetings & Baby Things! blog.  If you want to check that out the address is  I also noticed that we have a new neighbour just down the street from us.  This card might make her feel welcome.  Hehehe I love surprising people with handmade cards.
