Maple Manor

I bought the Steampunk Graphic 45 paper pad from Cutter's Creek and just had to make a Haunted House. (Kim will special order for you) I purchased an SVG file from SVG Cuts called Maple Manor. The house was a lot of work, and took a lot of paper but it was so fun to make.

I used a Darice wood grain embossing folder for the black and gray siding. The gray siding was cut from some Core' denations card stock that I sanded to give it a distress looked. The black siding I
inked with some white ink to give it a distress ink. All the patterned paper panels are from the Steampunk paper pad. I used a ton of Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive to put this house together.

To embellish the house, I added some ghost stickers and a glow in the dark spider. I also added a pumpkin changing light to the inside of the house and a flickering battery operated tea light to the tower.

So you can get the full effect, I have this video for you. I sure hope you like the house, I had so much fun making it.
