Welcome to my blog For the Love of All Things Crafty for Christmas in July, the blog hop from Exploring Cricut. If you've arrived here from Jessica's blog (http://craftinandstampin.blogspot.com/) then you're in the right place.
This week our challenge at Exploring Cricut is to create a card, layout, or other paper craft with a Christmas theme.
I saw this gingerbread house used on a layout several months back and fell in love with it. I've always loved gingerbread houses, they're so whimsical. I decided then that I had to do at least one Christmas Card with a gingerbread house. I found this gingerbread house on My Community cartridge and I cut it as well as all layers at 4.41.
My first step was to spray the card base with vanilla smootch to give the frosty snow effect. I then added the gingerbread house and all the different layers.
I then added diamond stickles to the roof for the snow and Xmas red stickles for the candy cane and peppermint sticks.
I hope my project inspires you to creativity this week. Don't forget to post your project at Exploring Cricut.
I'm also giving away a prize for this challenge. A winner will be chosen at random (using randon.org)from all who leave a comment on my blog so don't forget to post a comment !
