This yummy picture is our inspiration today.
Robbie captured the feeling perfectly with her card.
When I saw the houses, I immediately thought of our paper that has gingerbread houses all over it. All supplies are Stampin’ Up. The card base is Whisper White that was cut 5 ½” x 8 ½” and scored on the long side at 4 ¼”. I pulled out the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper and chose the Gingerbread House paper as well as 2 matching patterns. I cut the Gingerbread House paper at 2 ¼” x 3 7/16” – this allowed me to have 2 of the Gingerbread Houses on my panel. I mounted this onto a piece of Real Red card stock that measured 2 ½” x 3 5/8”. Next I cut the dot paper 1 ¼” x 5 ¼”. I wanted this paper to pop so I cut a piece of Early Espresso card stock at 1 ½” x 5 ½”. The dot paper was added to the Early Espresso card stock using Snail. Then using Snail I added this strip to the left hand edge getting it very close to the edge of the card front. Next I cut a strip of the Candy Cane paper 1” x 4 ½”. This was mounted onto a Real Red card stock piece that was cut 1 ¼” x 4 ¾” using Snail. I added this to the card front using Snail and overlapping the dot paper. The Gingerbread House layer was attached to the card front using dimensionals. Now I needed a sentiment. I chose one from the Candy Cane Christmas stamp set. This was stamped using Early Espresso ink onto Whisper White card stock that was ¾” x 2 1/8”. I mounted the sentiment on a piece of Early Espresso card stock that was 1” x 2 ¼”. Dimensionals were used to add it to the card front. My card was complete and ready to be mailed.
