Using cardstock from the Shabby Chic collection by Tim Holtz, I used the Fit-to-Page function to cut out two 3dBldg2 (one of the cuts was made using the shift key, and was for the solid cut that fits inside the box). There is a roof, steeple, & doors that could've been cut, but I chose to simplify it with only the two cuts.
In the back of the booklet for Winter Woodland there are directions on how to assemble the 3D village buildings. For my Tea Room, I assembled the solid shape box first, added foam dot adhesives, then wrapped the outside building shape with the cutouts around the the solid shaped box to seal it together. By the way...you don't have to add foam dots as I did. I just wanted to add some dimension to the cutout portions.
I used Glaze pens to draw on the detailed accents such as the tea room sign, door, bushes, & trees. I love these 3D type gel pens, as they give the look & feel of embossing after they dry. I also added a bit of lace at the top of the awning both in front & back, and on the sides.
The sides were originally meant to be stained glass windows, but I decided to give them the look of trees instead (yes, my imagination was at play here). I used the Glaze pens again, and since they are translucent you're able to see the pattern of the cardstock through the green of the trees. I rather liked the look of it -- but I bet it would be great as stained glass too, so I'll have to remember that for another project.
Thanks for peeking in today. Hope your weekend is fabulous! Lisa
