Gingerbread House

Best of 2011

t’s a wonderful sketch today (SC358) on Splitcoast and as you can see, my version morphed a little. It started out good, but then I had to move my window over to make room for the big poinsettia and found it looked better to have the window lower than the frame around it. Oh well.

All images & window die are Our Daily Bread designs. The little kitchen scene was stamped, colored and cut out. I used part of a Sizzix ef to emboss the dk red and attached the scene on top. The wood grain was stamped on the white c/s before the window was die cut. The curtains were die cut out of one of the dps. Both of the dp patterns are from an older Christmas stack and I cut out one little gingerbread man for the window. I cut two windows out of card board, sandwiched a piece of acetate between them then attached the window frame on top. I added a little stickles in the lower corners.I put the window back inside the leftover rectangle frame.

The poinsettia was also die cut and put together. I used a hole punch to punch some of the peppermint candies from the dp and used them for the center and also for the corners of the window frame. The finished card is 5 x 6.50 (A6).

Thanks so much for stopping by!
