I made an easel card with Beccy's Place - Gingerbread set! This is my all-time favourite set of Beccy's and I use it every year! It comes with the house, several kinds of cookies, and some word art.
I went with the pre-coloured images - I love this colour combo! I fussy-cut all of the images and die-cut some swirly lollipops (Your Next Stamp) and stitched snowbanks (Poppystamps and Simon Says Stamp). The house and tree cookies are popped up with craft foam and behind them is a die-cut stitched snowbank. I made a little hinge for the gingerbread couple on a die-cut stitched snowbank. This hinge stands up but will lie flat when the card is closed.
I added tiny die-cut bows (Your Next Stamp) to the gingerbread people, a bow-tie for the boy and a hair bow for the girl. I used a line of pink gems as the stopper for the easel, as well as on the bottom edge. The patterned paper was part of a card kit years ago, so I don't know the brand.
Here is an old photo from my childhood showing our Christmas tree with lots of homemade gingerbread cookies. My mom and nanny would both hang gingerbread men on their trees, and I think that's where my love of gingerbread men comes from!
