House Shaped Card - MFT Creative Construction with Blueprints

September 27, 2016

For this month's MFT Creative Construction with Blueprints DT challenge, we are challenged to feature some unique shaped elements (e.g.  angled panels, wonky shapes, curves, waves, and so on) included in Blueprints Die-namics. We are featuring the Blueprints 3, 5, 9, 10, 11, 13, 15, 18, 22, 25, 26.

The Blueprints 9 Die-namics includes a large tag shaped die. I decided to use it to create a house shaped card.

The Three Little Pigs! I guess the middle one is the youngest piggie since he is in a brick house.;) 
First I made a top-fold card from Primitive Cream CS and cut it with the large tag die to create a tag shaped card base. I stenciled the English Brick Wall on the card front using In the Buff and Latte Premium Dye inks and cut out a window from it using a rectangle die included in the Blueprints 9 Die-namics.
I cut another tag from Wild Cherry CS and cut off the lower part with a scallop border die that is also included in the Blueprints 9 Die-namics. After I white embossed a sentiment from the Harvest Buddies stamp set, I adhered it to the card base.

The curtains were cut from plaid patterned paper using the Classic Window Die-namics and they were adhered to the window from the back. I also applied a piece of Smooth White CS which I inked with Lemon Chiffon and Peach Bellini Premium Dye inks. 
I cut a grass border from Gumdrop Green CS using the Grassy Fields Die-namics and adhered it to the card base. I stamped, colored, and die cut three pigs from the Hog Heaven stamp set and adhered. I drew some dashed lines on the roof and tiny spots on the grass with a white pigment marker.
