Hello and thank you for visiting me! Its nearly Christmas, Yay! I am going to get at least two posts in before the big day! I don't expect many visits as everyone will be way too busy!
This card is the one I made for my Daughter, Son in Law and Freya and Millie, my gorgeous Granddaughters!
I won the die sets for the gingerbread house and the gingerbread man - they are both Dies by Sue Wilson and are called Gingerbread Man and Gingerbread House funnily enough! There is a roof for the house too that comes separately so you can make a real house, I won that too! I used Kraft, red and white scraps of card. The door opens and I have some Christmas word paper behind the door - I didn't think to photograph that, silly me! The holly above the door was made using a Memory box Holly Die and the sentiment is stamped in Versamark and embossed with white detail powder by Cosmic Shimmer. I used dries white glue to attach chunky glitter for my snow and the trim to the Christmas hats. The hats came in a pack I have had for ages, I couldn't resist popping them on the gingerbread men! For the snow in the background I used white embossing paste through a stencil and added fine glitter - not sure of the make of the stencil. All the die cutting was done with my Grand Calibre.
Freya and Millie, collectively known as Frillie enjoyed opening the little door!
