Gingerbread House Card
by Jennifer Svare

Hello!  This fun gingerbread house card was made using the Classic Cottage die.  I used this die for Thanksgiving placeholders last week.  This is a similar idea with the trees and house, but just by switching to bright colors and turning it all into gingerbread, it's easy to create a card with a completely different look! This would also make a fun shaker card.

I love how the gingerbread boy and girl dies have so many options in the way they cut out into separate pieces.  I used the key lime and red gingham paper by Birchpress Design for the vest and dress.  


I also wanted to show how cute the trees look over top of Birchpress Design's gingham paper.  I didn't use it for this project, but just had to show it!  There is transparent glitter paper over top:

I told Dave years ago when I took a few classes from him how I love trees. He said he did too. This is no exception....love it!

Buenos días si hay muchas opciones que quedan bellísimas. A mi me encantó Jennifer. Gracias por compartir.

What an adorable little scene, you put all the elements together really nicely! A nice tree die is a must have in every crafter's stash, and funnily enough I don't own one yet, so thanks so much for the chance to win one!
