Holiday Card 34 - Gingerbread House

Hello, everybody! I'm back again today with another holiday card! I've been hooked on all things gingerbread this year, and this time I've made a gingerbread house card!  I continue to be inspired by the alphabet prompts over at Beccy's Place and her sixth annual Month of Holiday Cards Challenge. I've already finished the alphabet so I'm revisiting the letter "G" for Gingerbread.


This is the first time I've used my Spellbinders Gingerbread House Die and I was so excited to see how it looked!  I cut the back portion in gold glitter cardstock (Simon Says Stamp), and the front portion in white.  I decorated the house with some sparkly enamel dots in festive colours and a red bow (Your Next Stamp).  The gingerbread couple are puffy stickers from my Dollarama stash, and I added a cute lollipop from Beccy's Place Christmas Candy set.  I used Poppystamps Stitched Landscapes to make a snowy landscape and a double-stitched rectangle to die-cut the panel. Lastly I stamped a sentiment and added a few snowflake sequins.

I would also like to support the following challenges:  A Gem of a Challenge AG 1/3; ABC Christmas W for Wishes UE; Beccy's Place Sixth Annual Month of Holiday Cards Challenge G for Gingerbread House UE; Christmas Cards All Year 'Round Gingerbread 5/5; Crafting by Designs Something Sweet 1/3; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas AG Optional Make Your Own Background UE; Creatalicious AG Optional Layer it Up UE; Cute Card Thursday Festive Colours UE; Cupcake Inspirations The Holidays 2/3; DL.ART November Linky AG UE 1/d; Double Trouble Thing 1 Sweet Treats for the Holidays, Thing 2 Use Your Stuff Mood Board, 3 Sprinkles on Top (sparkly enamel dots) 3/4; Jingle Belles Bring Us Some Figgy Pudding (festive food or drink); Happy Little Stampers AG w Dies UE; Joy Clair Inspiration Graphic (see below - I was inspired by the food theme) UE; Just Keep on Creating November AG UE; Pammie's Inky Pinkies AG 2/3; The Outlawz Monday Greetings GCC112618 Add Some Red 1E; Use Your Stuff 338 Mood Board (see below - I was inspired by the food theme) UE

I so admire that you are going through the alphabet again at Beccy's! This is such a cute die set. Great scene you created.

Awesome gingerbread house, I love the glitter paper as your background for the house just beautiful...well done my friend.

Beccy said...

Ooooh, this looks good enough to eat! The glittery background was a great idea Kitty, and I love the white overlay. The enamel dots look just like candies and they fit perfectly on the roof of your gingerbread house. Love the cookies and lollipop embellishments, and I really like the way you added the stamped sentiment. Fabulous!
Cheers,
Beccy

This is a definite WOW card. I do love the gingerbread people, too. The gold glitter card stock is beautiful. I sure wish I had some of those puffy gingerbread people. Those are cute. [Bunny]````
