Every Light in the House is On

Today was a day of resting and getting healthy again... and you know if you have a Gypsy... you can't help but pick it up.... I have been wanting to use a mushroom cut from Paisley for a while... but am not the biggest fan of the extras that go on all the cuts... then I realized that I could just use the shadow for the mushroom...and this card was born... we have all see mushroom houses before so I know its not exactly original...but this is my version.. hope you like it... thank you so so much for looking and for your comments...they really keep me making cards!!  Hugs, Jeannie

CRICUT & GYPSY
Paisley
Mushroom (3) (shadow cut) cut @ w 3.67 x h 3.46...on the Cricut I would cut these at 3 1/2 inches.
Doodle Charms
Sun cut @ w 2.92 x h 2.73...on the Cricut I would cut this at 2 3/4 inches.
Walk in My Garden
Bee and its layers cut @ w 1.03 x h 1.09...I cut two complete bees in velum and the layer once in yellow and once in black... I trimmed the head and tail off the velum.. velum makes wonderful wings!...on the Cricut I would cut these @1 inch.
Snail and its layer (2) cut @ w 2.33 x h h 1.0 ... on the Cricut I would cut these @ 1 inch.
Easter 2010
Grass (short) cut @ w 1.59 x h 1.09... you will need 4 of these...to get the grass I place a rectangle the size of my background paper 4.75 x 3.5 in the mat... then I use 4 pieced of grass...two I flip from side to side... then I overlap them to get my width... group them and weld them together.... on the Cricut I would cut 4 of these @ 1 inch.... and overlap them on my paper for the effect.
Grass (tall) cut @ w 1.59 x h 1.59... you will need 4 of these...to get the grass I place a rectangle the size of my background paper 4.75 x 3.5 in the mat... then I use 4 pieced of grass...two I flip from side to side... then I overlap them to get my width... group them and weld them together.... on the Cricut I would cut 4 of these @ 1 1/4 inches... and overlap them on my paper for the effect.
*The easiest way to get the tall grass is to duplicate your welded/grouped short grass and unlink your width and height and change the height to 1.59 inches.
George
Door
Rectangle cut @ w 0.58 x h 1.15 cut two of these one in yellow for the light in the window...the other add your window square to it...but don't weld the squares to the door...just group them.
Squares for window in door cut @ w 0.26 x h 0.24.
Using the Cricut I would cut this with a paper trimmer... cut a rectangle 3/4 x 1 1/5 an inch and your squares at 1/4 x 1/4 and inch..cut your squares in yellow and glue to your rectangle door....this will give you the same effect.
Windows
Squares for window cut @ w 1.07 x h 1.0
Squares for window panes cut @ w 0.36 x h 0.34.
Using the Cricut I would cut this with a paper trimmer... cut 2 squares at  1 x 1  inch and your squares at 1/3 x 1/3 and inch..cut your squares in yellow and glue to your square window this will give you the same effect.

Hi Jeannie, I really like this card, what a great card for someone who just moved. Or anything! It's cheerful.

Thanks also for that other blog idea. I can't believe I had never thought of that before, but boy does it boost the day and the thoughts.

Keeping your family in my prayers.
