From Our Home To Yours
My card today was created for the 52 Christmas Card Throwdown Theme Challenge family and friends. I started with a plain white card base and layered on a few pieces of patterned paper from the American Crafts Hot Cocoa 6x6 paper pad. I just love these yummy papers and they just scream winter and holidays to me. I stamped the gingerbread couple from the Avocado Arts Gingerbread Goodness stamp set onto some plain kraft cardstock from The Paper Studio and fussy cut them out. I stamped the house from the same stamp set onto the patterned papers and fussy cut them out as well. I popped the roof and the gingerbread couple up off of the card using some Stampin' UP foam dimensionals. I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set and added some black dashed lines around the outer edges of the focal panel to give it some added detail. I added some candy red and frosted lace Stickles to the snow bank, the roof and chimney lines, to the gingerbread couple, and on either side of the sentiment for some sparkle and shine. I mean, what's a Christmas card without some sparkle and shine, right? I hope you like it!
