Project Instructions:

Other products:  White Card Stock, Woodgrain Cottage Embossing Folder, Archival Watering Can Ink, Dove Blending Pen, Distressed Inks (Weathered Wood, Aged Mahogany, Vintage Photo, Brushed Corduroy, Walnut Stain and Bamboo Leaves), Copper Micro Beads, Glimmer Spray Sparkle, Micro Glitter Crystal and die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Start by creating a 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 scor 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!

Thanks so much for visiting.

Have a wonderful day!

About Castlepark Designs

My name is Joann and I live in Halifax, Nova Scotia with my husband Miles. We have one son who is in the Royal Canadian Navy. I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
