How To Guide - Step 1

Fold the A4 card stock in half. 

Place the Journal Journey House Page Die on to the card, so the left hand spine cutting edge of the die, hangs just off the edge of the folded edge of the black card (as shown here).

Secure in place with low tack tape then run through your die cutting machine. 

Be frugal when placing and die cutting from the black card... as you will need this to multi die cut other elements later.  

How To Guide - Step 2

Remove the die and you should have a shaped card blank, with the fold/spine on the left hand side. 

How To Guide - Step 3

Take your scissors and cut off the excess spine from the roof, so you now have a house shaped card blank. 

 

How To Guide - Step 4

Use a white gel pen to draw a stitched line around your card blank. 

Set to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 5

Place the house die (from the same set) that's the next size down, on to one corner of the A4 card (you will be using the leftover cardstock later).

Run it through your die cutting machine. 

Be frugal when placing and die cutting from the white card... as you will need this to die cut another house page, and multi cut other elements, later.  

How To Guide - Step 6

Place the Thirsty Brush Boxed In Texture stencil on to the white die cut house. 

Spray through the stencil with your Izink yellow and orange Shiny Sprays. 

Dry off the ink thoroughly. 

How To Guide - Step 7

Adhere this on to your shaped card blank, and set to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 8

Using the dies from the Journal Journey House Page die set, you need to die cut ONE black door, TWO black window frames and TWO sets of window panels (as shown here), from some of the leftover cardstock you set aside earlier.

Keep all remaining cardstock for later. 

How To Guide - Step 9

Use your white gel pen to add stitched detail, around your black die cut elements. 

How To Guide - Step 10

Adhere your black die cut elements in place, on to your shaped card blank.

Adhere the white window panels in place, as shown here. 

Set your card to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 11

Ink up these stamps, from the Birbs Cottage, and Bert And Ernie Creative Stamp sets, with the Onyx Black Versafine. 

Stamp on to some of the remaining white card, then cut them out, setting any leftover white cardstock to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 12

Apply a little of each of the Izink Pigments on to a craft or glass mat, add a little water and use a paint brush to colour in all the cut out elements.

Once the ink is dry, use a black and white gel pen, to add accents and highlights to your elements, as required. 

How To Guide - Step 13

Adhere your cut out elements on to your card blank, using wet glue, foam pads, or both. 

Set to one side. 

How To Guide - Step 14

Using the same house die as you did in step 5, die cut another, from your leftover white card.

 

How To Guide - Step 15

Use a black pen to draw a stitched frame around the die cut page. 

How To Guide - Step 16

Place the H O M E letter dies, from the Journal Journey House Page die set, on to your left over black card, and run through your die cutting machine. 

How To Guide - Step 17

Adhere your die cut letters on to your white die cut card. 

How To Guide - Step 18

Write your own sentiment on the die cut page. 

You can stamp a sentiment, if you prefer. 

How To Guide - Step 19

To finish, adhere your page on to the inside of your shaped card blank.
