Build A Gingerbread House Card!

Hi friends,

I created today's card using Hero Arts Gingerbread Stamp & Cut set. I originally saw this cute Gingerbread House card idea at the Hero Arts website, so I thought I would try it myself!

Started with blending Iced Spruce distress oxide ink pad using an ink blending tool over a 4.25" * 5.5" white cardstock. White Gansai Tambi paint was flicked over this cardstock with a small paintbrush and set aside to completely dry. Once dry, snowflakes from the Gingerbread Stamp & Cut and trees from the Home For the Holidays stamp set were stamped with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with White Detail Embossing Powder.

A 1.25" x 5.5" strip of white cardstock was adhered along the bottom edge of the gray sky background. The sentiment "From Our home to yours HAPPY Holidays" from the Gingerbread Stamp & Cut  was stamped with Black Ink along the white border.

The two Gingerbread House Stamp & Cut houses and the gingerbread men were stamped on smooth white cardstock with Black Ink, colored in with Prismacolor pencils, and die cut the images before adhering them to the scene with foam adhesive squares for a bit of dimension. Added some highlights using a White gel pen over the colored images.

The card was finished with some sparkle using Wink Of Stella on these colored images.
