Cute Cottage.

Hi everyone. I'm Jen and I'm glad to be back with you all again. This month I have a super cute card to share with you all. If like me you enjoy die cutting then this is definitely the card for you! I chose a muted, pastel colour scheme for this cute scene and love how it turned out.
To start I began by die cutting all the elements from the Home Design Layered House Dies – LDRS Creative and Home Design Foliage Add-On Dies – LDRS Creative Layering die sets. I used textured card stock in shades of cream, grey, white and teal for the cute little house and green, teal, brown and pink for the foliage. If you want to create a really full scene like mine, make sure you cut extra trees and shrubs. 
**Tip the shrubs in the set also make the fluffiest of clouds**
I assembled the house using liquid glue and moved onto the background whilst it was drying.
Next a used a pencil and lightly drew some wavy hillsides onto 2 different shades of teal/green card and cut them out with a craft scissors. I cut a rectangle of pale blue cardstock for the sky and layered it behind the hills.
Then it was time to create my cute little scene. I made a path from grey carstock with a ruler and craft knife and added two little topiary trees either side of the front door. For a pop of colour, I arranged some pretty pink flowers onto the shrubs. I also decorated the front door with a pink heart that I cut using the tiny heart die from the  Campfire Friends - Pocket Pals Coordinating Dies – LDRS Creative 
Once finished I layered the scene onto a white scalloped rectangle cut from the largest die in the Delicate Stitches Scalloped Rectangle Dies – LDRS Creative set. Then added that to a pale green US A2 card front and popped the whole thing onto a white card base. 
I heat embossed a sentiment from Love Wave Stack 4x6 Stamps – LDRS Creative using Watermark Emboss Pad – LDRS Creative, in silver on white card and die cut it using the cordinating Sentiment Stack Shadow Die - Wave – LDRS Creative I added it to the bottom of the card with foam tape which finished the front.
As a final touch I cut more hillsides from the same texured cardstock and used up the extra die cut trees to continue this beautiful scene on the inside of the card.
This card was an absolute joy to make and I think the textured card stock really adds a lot to the die cuts images.
I hope you enjoy this card as much as I do and I'll catch you all again soon x
