Elizabeth Craft Design's July Challenge: Stand Up Helpers

The challenge for the Elizabeth Craft Design Team this month is to use a Stand Up Helper. Elizabeth Craft Designs makes a variety of Stand Up Helper dies, including their new range of word ones - of which I used 'Best Wishes', combined with the Holiday House die set, also from ECD.

I used a plain white card base, measuring 5'' x 12'', which I folded in half, and then half again on one side. On the unfolded half of the card I used the Stand-up helper die.
I used another couple of rectangles of cardstock, to be the background for my house, and embossed the top layer.
I also cut an additional 'Best Wishes' with the Stand Up Helper, to stick on top of the one attached to the card.
The house elements were cut from papers from 'Hello Sunshine' 6x6 pad by Pink Paislee and 'Summer Bliss' 6x6 pad by Echo Park.

 I stuck all the house elements together, using some small square foam pads in between the layers, and also cut a little path, and added some clouds (cut with a die from the All Seasons Tree set.)
This is what the card looks like fully closed.

 I also added a bit of patterned paper to the foot of the card, and a shaped pink piece, using the Agatha edges die set. The heart is from the Spiral Circle Pull card die set.

Some of the products used:



  1. Absolutely love this! Can you tell me how you adhered the window frames to the windows? Those pieces are so small and narrow that I have trouble getting mine on without a ton of glue showing. Thanks!!

  2. Hi Denise - thank you!
    To glue on fine pieces, I always use a glue pen like this one:
