Another Gingerbread House Christmas Card

Continuing on with my gingerbread house theme for my recent Christmas cards and using the beautiful Candy Cane Lane DSP here is another one...


The front panel features the lovely Fancy Frost Specialty Designer Series Paper, which has white-on-white textured designs that show when the paper is inked, or can be a textured background as in my card above.

Again I cut out a cute gingerbread house, highlighting the snow and candy features with Wink of Stella, and mounted in over the snow-like background DSP, which I inked the edges with Crumb Cake ink. I mounted this on Real Red cardstock cut with one of my framelits.

I also used some more of that beautiful Real Red 3/4" Stitched Edge Ribbon and attached one of our cute new Christmas Trinkets Embellishments, which include not only gingerbread men but also holly and bells (8 each of the 3 designs).

You can just see a sneak peak of the inside of my card, where I just added a strip of Candy Cane Lane Designer Washi Tape, to carry over the candy theme.

Candy Cane Lane Christmas Card

The Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper has so many beautiful sheets of 12" x 12" patterned paper that it is hard to know which one to use first.

I was fascinated by the cards that I have seen using the cute gingerbread houses that I thought I must have a go at making some Christmas cards with this paper myself. I used the sample card on page 4 of the Holiday Catalogue, as my initial inspiration, along with others I have seen to create a card using three of these cute gingerbread houses.


I felt that one of the sheets of DSP looked so much like falling snow that it would make the perfect background to my houses. I used dimensionals to make my houses pop off the card and liked how the strip of ribbon added colour and dimension too.

I used my Wink of Stella pen to add some shimmer to the snow on the roof as well as some of the candy features on the houses themselves.

I stamped my greeting on Whisper White cardstock in Real Red ink and then used the banner die from the Cupcake Cutouts Framelits set to allow it to lift off the card front with the help of more Stampin' Dimensionals.

I was very pleased with the results. What do you think?
