Hello my blogging friends. I really think I’ve either lost my mind or I’m really just enjoying the shaped cards for a change of pace. Lauren was teasing me to make a cabin for the challenge…..I thought, why not?! How hard could it be?! Actually not that hard at all!! I had a card template for a birdhouse and so I just changed it up a bit as I built it.
Now does this cute little welcome sign not make you want to come in and warm up with a nice cup of hot cocoa?? I have strips of birch bark from some of the trees up at the cabin so that’s what I used for my ‘siding’ and my ‘shingles’…..clever, ain’t I?? lol I used one of those skinny coffee stir sticks, broke it, distressed it with a pair of my old scissors and then inked it with my Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Vintage Photo, Antique and Weathered Wood. I also had some green spanish moss and thought it would look okay for the front yard of the cabin.
Here’s a look at the whole card. I thought it needed a door and maybe a window but I couldn’t think of anything I could use to make them so this is just a view from the side of the house…..I mean, cabin. 😉
So Lauren, there is your cabin…..my cabin…..a cabin, sort of…..lol. **Sigh** maybe I should have stuck to a bird house!! lol
I have one more card I made for this……off to post it to my blog!
