Jillibean Soup - A Card With a View

Hi and thanks for stopping by! Today I'm making a scene card with Jillibean Soup You Make Miso Happy pattern paper and Peapod Parts die cut images.  Cards with scenes are a sweet escape - isn't this a fun neighborhood?  
I started by creating the landscape. I chose two shades of green patterned paper for the landscape and some navy blue for the sky. Just a few wavy cuts with scissors creates a rolling landscape.. a perfect suburban setting for the little houses. 
Details make all the difference when making a scene. Little leaf Peapod cuts become trees, a doily makes a sunny sky. I even fussy cut a little path to the front door of the home in the forefront.
The houses are added with adhesive foam tape to add dimension to the scene. A little heart helps make it clear that this is a home- not a house. And this card is perfect for welcoming a new neighbor, or to congratulate the new home owner in your life. 

I love how the pattern paper scenery adds a touch of whimsy to the design.  I hope you give this a try some time!
