Mushroom House ~Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon~

     I'm posting today and hoping you all had the most blessed Easter weekend! We certainly did at our house. And speaking of houses, my little card features one of my very favorite single image files here at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon. The darling mushroom house that is part of the Gnomies Cutting Files. I'll admit, I used this file very often. From a recent card using the sweet bird nest to using the lantern in Halloween projects! So fun!
   In a simple design you can make more impact by paying attention to the details. For example, inking all the layers. That really helps each layer stand out more. The most attention was put into the mushroom house. In total there is well over 30 layers! 
 
   You can use foam tape for dimension, which I've done with the green hill and house. Or you can cut multiples of the same layer. For example the red on the roof was cut 3x and glued together. The doorstep and windowsill is 5 layers. It's just a different way to build dimension and layers, and interest! Adding an embossed sentiment just wraps up this super sweet card! 
   And the sweetest cut files ever...
