Love Cottage


It's Anja. Today I have a simple card for you. I used adorable cottage die, which has a lot of lovely small details. I wanted to highlight those details and that's why I made a minimalistic background. 

For this card I used:
- Cottage Cutz (Valentine Cottage, Love Phrase),
- Distress Inks (Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry, Shabby Shutters, Peeled Paint, Spun Sugar, Worn Lipstick, Vintage Photo, Barn Door, Broken China),
- water color card stock (30x15 cm),
- white card stock for die cuts,
- water spritzer,
- heat gun,
- paper trimmer,
- paper glue.

First I cut and colored the cottage. I used Distress Inks to color it.

I did the same with the love phrase.

Then I trimmed the paper for the card base. I made 15x15 cm base.

I used Distress Ink to color the sky. I colored in circles.

Then I spritzed a few water drops to add a little interest to the sky. I used heat gun do dry the paper. Before drying I used paper towel for additional water.

And then I just glued the cottage and the phrase to the card base and my card was done.

Before I go, I would like to invite you to the store to check out the new Spring release. Many new adorable dies, now for 25 % off. Can't wait to start using it.

Have a nice Sunday.
