Farm House






This house is an image that really didn't look like it could turn into anything special! I am sharing a *before* pic to show how simple it really is. I love red houses...so I decided to start there. I ended up leaving the trim white, and making the roof charcoal gray, and then framed the image in dark gray cardstock. I used a dark red background that I Cuttlebug embossed with a stripe pattern and turned it sideways to micmic the siding on the house. The windows were colored with a light yellow and then covered with Glossy Accents (Ranger) so they look like glass. The ribbon goes through the
image panel and then I added the
sentiment near the bottom to balance it out and give it a *theme*. This one would work as a thank you card for a dinner or even for weekend host(ess). :)

Great house image. I love how you used the distressed stripe embossing folder to go with the siding on the house.
