The house on Ai Lane by Reneé Matarese

Hello Ai fans!

Today I'm sharing a little house I whipped up.
I used a wonderful die that Ai carries called 4619 – Window Die.


Wouldn't we all like to live on Ai Lane??


On the inside I used an image from the Cottage Sets line called  4745 – Talk Much Set.


Copics used:
N2, CO, C5, E37, E43, Y08, YG61, YG63, BG13, R05, R22, R39, R81

UPDATE...

Some people were interested in more details about my card.  I just used a basic stair step card as my base.  The only change I made was to make the side panels 1" instead of 1.25" so that there would be plenty of room for the window. The center panel measures 3.5" wide.  I used this template I found on Google for my card.


I cut the window on the front panel after cutting my card.  It fit right in my Cuttlebug.
The window die is a two piece set.  I cut the inside pane first and then cut and glued the window frame and shutters over the opening.




For the awning I just cut a piece of gray paper the same width as the center portion of the card.  It measures 3 1/2" x 1 3/4".  I scored it and glued it on after cutting some of the scallops and adhering them.  I cut the Martha Stewart grass to the same width as the card and used foam adhesive to create layers for a 3-D effect.


The scalloped panels were popped up with foam adhesive.




I hope this helps!!  It was a fun card to make.
