House Warming card

Hey All!
I have been putting this card together in my head for over a week now and finally had time today to put it together. Don't you want to live here?

I used the darling house image from the April Showers cartridge and welded two of them together to make the card shape. I cut two front porches so I could make pop up the overhang thingy in a different color. The papers were all FREE (that's right, free!) digital papers available in the "freebies" section on jessicasprague.com. The set is called Strawberry Lemonade.

A super easy way to add instant dimension to your Cricut cuts is to ink all the edges. It covers up any white core in cardstocks (especially printed ones) and just helps add detail and charm.

The font is called Courier and was printed on my printer and then i used a CCR exclusive cartridge banner shape. Lining up the print and cut is a bit tricky but I love the results! you can probably get the same effect using your printer and Rubonz paper by Graphix.

I used a little brad and put it in the hole cut for the doorknob. Like I said, I want to live here : ).
