Instead of creating a single line border of houses I wanted to create a dimensional neighborhood. I cut each one with a different color of cardstock and colored the roofs with a black copic marker. I couldn’t resist adding lampposts to every house. I cut three different layers of green cardstock using my deckle scissors and attached the houses. I attached the layers together with mounting tape to create a small separation between each one.
I cut the trees and fence from the Build a House set. I created leaves by using the negative cutouts from my Fancy Cutout Border. I attached them to the tree limbs with glossy accents and attached tiny flowers made using my 1/8” circle punch. I attached the fence sections along the front row of houses and then filled in around the the lampposts, houses and trees with tiny flowers and pine sprig cluster.. I used the cloud from the Build a House set and Puffy Clouds and created the sun with a 3/4” circle punch.
I think this would such a cute “Welcome to the Neighborhood” card.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend. Happy Easter.
