Instructions: Start by creating an open topped box that measures 5" wide x 3" deep and 3" tall out of white card stock. Next die cut the cottage die 2 times and attach to the sides of the box. Next for texture, cut the cottage die 2 more times along with 2 pieces of white card stock measuring 5" x 3" and emboss all 4 pieces. After they are lightly distressed with Vintage Photo distress ink, attach them to your box for extra strength.
I wanted to create a set of double doors so I reverse stamped the door, click here for a tutorial on how to do this yourself. The fence, windows and doors were all stamped on white card stock using Watering Can ink and then die cut with the coordinating die then coloring using a Dove Blender pan and a combination of Weathered Wood, Aged Mahogany and Vintage Photo distressed inks. To create the roof and allow it to open (for use as a gift box), first die cut another 2 cottage dies out of white card stock and trim slightly on the sides of the die so they will slide down behind the assembled base. Next cut a piece of white card stock 6 1/4" wide x 7" long and score at the 2 1/8" mark. To finish off the edges of the roof, die cut on both 6 1/4" side with the scalloped Border Essentials Die. To attach the cottage sides to the roof use small pieces of card stock 3" x 1" wide, scored at the 1/2" mark. Cut relief cuts on 1 side to allow the strip to bend and attach to the last 2 cottage die cuts. Once your glue has dried, attach the sides one at a time to the roof 1/2" in from each side. If desired, you can also cover the roof in a piece of paper from the Wildwood Cottage Paper Collection (as shown).
The Wildwood Florals Cling Stamp Set were stamped on white card stock with Watering Can ink before die cutting with the matching die. The flower petals were distressed with Aged Mahogany before shaping the flowers with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and finishing the centers with Copper Micro Beads. The Wheelbarrow and Bird Bath images were all stamped on white card stock using Watering Can ink before die cutting with the matching die and coloring with Brushed Corduroy and Walnut Stain distressed inks. The flourish images were all stamped on white card stock using Bamboo Leaves ink before die cutting with the matching die and coloring with Peeled Paint distressed ink. The finishing touch once fully assembled was to lightly mist the entire cottage with Glimmer Spray Sparkle and lightly dust with Micro Glitter Crystal!
