Welcome Back Friends,
DT Melanie here with you today with a super cute project. Playing with the "Gingerbread Home" die set made me feel like I was playing with paper dolls again, like when I was a kid. I bet a lot of you remember those days :-)
The Gingerbread Home set is just adorable... lets take a closer look...
To create this card simply follow these steps.
Step 1: Cut a 5" x 10" piece of red card stock and fold to create your card base.
Step 2: Cut a piece of speciality paper measuring 4.75" x 4.75" and attach to the front of your card. "It's Christmas Time" paper by ModaScrap was used here.
Step 3: Die cut all your pieces. Here are a few photos showing some of this process.
The full house die from dark brown card stock and the outlined scalloped shape from ivory card stock
The candy cane cut at the same time using one die for red and the other for the white.
Then when you get to the gingerbread man and lady then fun begins to happen. Make sure to use double sided adhesive to help with assembling these pieces. The pieces are interchangeable so cut your self numerous pieces and play around with the layers. In lay a few pieces and look what you can make....
When you are done with all the die cutting simply glue all pieces together to create a fun and inviting gingerbread scene.
Step 4: Creating the Sentiment:
The sentiment was created by using a portion of one stamp from the "Holiday Cheer" clear stamp set. The stamp itself reads "Candy Cane Wishes and Mistletoe Kisses" and looks like this.
Carefully stamp just the "Candy Cane" portion first, as seen below, onto a Dotted Scalloped Rectangle die. Next carefully ink up just the word, "Wishes", and stamp it below the previous stamped words.
Lastly to fit the sentiment into the scene without over lapping anything simply snip off the edge of the dotted scalloped rectangle and glue to the top left hand side of your card.
I hope you have enjoyed this tutorial today and that it inspires you to get crafty. Feel free to contact me with any questions. Happy Stamping!!! Melanie
