Raise the Roof Card


Hi there! And welcome to
my creative little cyber space on the web!
It's been awhile since I've blogged so
I'm glad you've joined me today.
Sharing fun and easy paper arts ideas
is a passion I enjoy coming together
with you to explore and enjoy.
Thanks again for visiting!

You're going to really enjoy
making this adorable card!

Introducing...
the RAISE THE ROOF CARD!

A video tutorial is available on my




And you can view more pics of
BOTH Raise the Roof Cards
seen here in this post on

Once you've enjoyed the video,
you will most likely return here for
measurements of all the
matted areas of my
Raise the Roof Card.

If you are coming from the video first,
WELCOME!
And thank you for enjoying my

Without further adieu...
here are the measurements you will need
for your very own
RAISE THE ROOF CARD



Trim a piece of decorative paper
measuring 3" x 3"
and then trim this piece
corner to corner
to create the roof for the
FRONT of the card. 


I always add a little something
just below the roof so that
it resembles the gingerbread
of a real home.
This piece will measure 4-1/4" in length.


The square portion covering
the entire front of the house measures
3-1/4" x 4-1/4".


I personally love adding
a focal image to my little houses
with circle punches.
The sky is the limit though
so go all out with you
Raise the Roof Card
and be creative!

My circles were created using the
1-3/4" circle punch
2" scallop circle punch
2-1/4" cicle punches
(all from Stampin' Up!).


I also enjoy adding "grass"
to each of my little house cards.
The card stock for my grass
is 4-1/4" in length.


The larger matt piece on
BOTH sides of the INSIDE
of the house card
measure 3" x 4".
And the smaller matt piece
(the white on TOP OF the green)
measures 2-3/4" x 3-3/4".


The two top panels of the roof
on the INSIDE of the card
come from decorative paper
measuring 3" x 3" and then
trimmed corner to corner.


The largest triangular matt
on the UNFOLDED ROOF
comes from a piece of
decorative paper
measuring 2-3/4" x 2-3/4"
and then trimmed corner to corner.


And the final four triangular pieces
on either side of the
UNFOLDED ROOF
come from a piece of card stock
or decorative paper measuring
1-3/4" x 1-3/4".

And there ya have it!
The RAISE THE ROOF CARD!

I  hope you have a creative day!
