The first Sizzix design is from Eileen Hull, the 3-D House Die. Cut on a Sizzix machine using mat board, it is a very study form and so much fun to put together & decorate.
Here is my finished design using Eileen Hull's 3D House: Rose Cottage
When I first saw this die, I had fairy tale visions running throughout my head, thus Rose Cottage was created. Decorated with fabric roses, silver foil and scrapbook paper, this little cottage is waiting for a future queen to arrive.A close up shot at the foiled entrance.
Late at night you can even see the soft glow of the lights from inside Rose Cottage, further beckoning tired wanderers in for a much needed rest.
