See how you can create gorgeous cards using this charming die cut house decorated for fall!
I’ve been absolutely loving playing with the Tabbed House die set from Rubbernecker and today I get to show off this adorable die cut house decorated for Fall. I can’t think of a season where this pretty house, with all the included designs for all the gorgeous details, can’t be the star and to be able to build these on cards makes this die cut loving girl’s heart go pitter pat! I love this slate blue of the house itself against all the pretty pops of autumn reds and yellows and I swear I can smell the Fall leaves looking at this little scene.
To make this fall house scene I used Rubbernecker’s Tabbed House, Nested Rectangles, Half Tree, Grass, Knob Top Fence, Classic Pumpkins, Tiny Flower Buds, Cart Accessories #1, Grass #2 and Tiny Leaves #1.Scroll down for all my insider details and see how you can make this pretty card, too, with your own season twists.
Frame, Grass and Fence
- Use white cardstock to cut an A2 sized card base and a 5.50″ x 4.25″ layer for the frame.
- Cut a 5.25″ x 4.00″ of light blue cardstock and attach it to the card base using ATG adhesive.
- Line up the rectangle die on the white layer, and cut the frame opening.
- Apply strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the card base.
- Use white cardstock to cut two fence sections, trim them to fit and attach them to the front of the front of the frame using double stick tape.
- Use green cardstock to cut two grass sections, attach one to the front of the fence using double stick tape and the second one using a strip of mounting tape.
House Base Parts
To make my Halloween House I assembled the house base parts that include house, gable, windows, door, brick and porch columns , roof and steps. Here is a shot of all the parts and pieces you will get with this die set – you can see how you can create endless custom looks with all these different elements!
- Use blue cardstock to cut the house base and gable sections.
- Cut the windows, door, roof, columns, railing and brick using white cardstock.
- Use Crimson, Pumpkin and Pecan ink and mini applicators to color the brick sections.
- Apply Mango and Pumpkin inks to the roof sections using mini applicators and attach them using Connect glue..
- Attach the brick and white wood porch columns together using Connect glue.
- Attach the gable to the porch columns and porch roof using Connect glue. Pro Tip: By assembling the porch sections together first allows you to see exactly where they fit on the house.
- Attach the brick porch foundation, porch columns, gable and porch side roof to the house base using mounting tape.
- Attach the roof sections using glossy accents.
- Use glossy accents to attach the door and windows.
- Attach pieces of mounting tape to the back of the house, tuck it in behind the grass and attach to the card base.
- Cut the tree using Kraft cardstock and the leaves using white cardstock.
- Apply Pecan ink to the tree using a wet baby wipe. Pro Tip: Applying ink with a baby wipe produces a more even application and is fast and easy.
- Use mini applicators to apply Fern, Mango and Pumpkin inks to the leaves.
- Once all three colors have been applied to each leaf go over the complete leaf with a light layer of Mango ink to blend the three colors.
- Attach the leaves to the tree branches using glossy accents. Note: I modified the tree by cutting the lowest branch and attaching it higher on the tree truck using glossy accents. I didn’t want that branch to hang so low over the tree.
- Apply a strip of mounting tape to the back trunk of the tree and tiny pop dots to the back of a few key leaves.
- Tuck the trunk in behind the fence and grass and attach it to the card base.
Finish the Card
- Use Kraft cardstock to cut two tiny flower pots.
- Use green cardstock to cut the two or three sets of the grass sprigs.
- Attach a few short sections of the grass to the back of the pots and attach them to the porch wall using small pieces of mounting tape.
- Tuck grass sections in behind the front grass section and attach using glossy accents.
- Cut tiny flowers and pumpkins using orange cardstock.
- Place the flowers face up on the molding pad, push down in the center using a tiny tipped stylus and attach them to the grass sections in the grass and the flower pots using glossy accents.
- Attach the pumpkins sections together using glossy accents, tuck them in behind the grass and attach using small pieces of mounting tape.
