Jolly Gingerbread

Hello, I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving break.  Now it's back to reality and if it's Sunday,and 11.00 pm, that must mean it's time for another challenge from the Amuse Studio Challenge blog.  This week's challenge is to produce a holiday card for whatever holiday you are celebrating this season.  Since I got my big shot and holiday dies, I just can't stop playing with them

The card is slightly smaller than my normal card - it's actually 4-bar (3 1/2 x 5), which still fits a standard envelope, BUT also just happens to be exactly the right width for the gingerbread houses.

I started by heat embossing the houses with white embossing powder on squash card stock, I cut them out and them ran them face down through my Xyron sticker maker, I then peeled of the backing and dropped it into a plate of diamond glitter - instant sugar topping!  The gingerbread men and snowflake were cut using the Amuse Studio dies and then decorated with pearl stickers, baker's twine and a red felt heart cut using the tiny heart die - if you haven't tried using the Amuse Studio dies on their felt you really should, it makes me smile every time I do it - it cuts the felt like butter.

All the supplies for this card are available from Amuse Studio
