Gingerbread Spice and Everything Nice

Hello, everybody!  I adore the cuteness of gingerbread men and gingerbread houses, and this card has both!  I started this card last December, but I just found the fussy-cut pieces in my incomplete pile and decided to finish it.  

The adorable image is The Paper Shelter Gingerbread House and I remember printing it three times so I could fussy-cut various parts to pop up with foam tape.  The house is popped up, and then the gingerbread man is popped up as another layer.  I stamped a sentiment (Cardz TV Gingerbread Christmas) and embossed the background with Die'sire Embossalicious Let it Snow.  I added a computer-generated Special Celebration sentiment and finished the card with three pink snowflake sequins.

This is super cute Kitty. Love the colours. I closed my Bible Journaling blog. I was spending lots of time in photographing the work & posting it. At best I got 3 followers, most days it was none. I now have more to time to work on it & also read my bible. Thank you for asking.
