This house is called “Triple Gable Gothic”. You may recall a photo of it in one of my earlier posts.
I felt like it was a little boring. The roof is made out of glittered paper rather than cardboard with glitter which is more substantial and what I use now. The front of the house, despite the balconies and the arched windows, was just a little blah. So I decided it needed a more interesting base so I made a book as the base.
The body of the book is a stack of corrugated cardboard cut to the same size wrapped with paper that has been tea-stained and scored to look like old pages. The cover of the book is made with 2 pieces of cardboard larger than the pages covered with card stock that has been embossed. I used Spellbinders embossing folder called European Tapestry. The spine is a piece of cardboard that I curved and covered with paper. The embossing on the spine of the book is an Anna Griffin strip embossing folder, I think.
The “Happy Halloween” on the top photo is a Tim Holtz stamp. I made my pumpkins out of polymer clay and the tree is the Tim Holtz Branch Tree die from Sizzix. I’ve used it on a lot of my houses.
