Heartfelt-Congratulations House Gift Box

Good morning!
How is this for a gift box?  I thought it would make a fun Home warming gift box.  
I had to put a car out front as well don't you know. 


The house is scored every 1/2" to look like siding.

The bottom and the chimney is embossed with a brick folder then sponged.

12 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
