Hey there! Happy Wednesday!

You wouldn’t believe the paper that was cut in my craft room today. Some made it to a card design and some made it to the garbage. Yes… I’m not happy when that happens. The end result is always worth it, though.

There’s a new suite of products that will be available to customers on November 1st. That’s only a few days away. Today, I cut some of that pretty patterned paper (it landed on projects, not garbage), and came up with a few projects to share. I’ll get at least one up before the weekend, so stay tuned. I’m also planning a new video tutorial and hoping to have that up soon, as well.

Also, on November 1st, I have some good news to share. I think it’ll make you smile!

Let’s talk about today’s card.

Today’s Card Parts & Pieces

  • In the midst of my confusion today, I put this card together before I took my usual “Pieces and Parts” photo.
  • I thought the best I could do, when I realized I didn’t have the photo, (which was at the point of uploading my pictures), is to show you how I built this gingerbread house using the Gingerbread House Dies. That led me to include a picture of the actual Dies.
  • You can see in the top left corner of the photo above how I die cut the house, roof snow, door, windows, trees and wreath.
  • The house is die cut using Kraft cardstock.
  • The gingerbread swirls near the roof, and the outline for the windows and door are stamped with Early Espresso ink.
  • I stamped the fussy cut sentiment with Early Espresso ink.
  • The card layers are attached to one of the 3 1/2″ x 5″ Kraft Note Cards.
  • I added a Cherry Cobbler mat layer under the Basic White top layer.
  • If you look closely, you can see I embossed the top layer with one of the snowy mountain scenes from the Charming Landscapes Embossing Folders.
  • I think the embossed layer gives this design exactly the right amount of texture.
  • I attached all of the elements with Dimensionals.
  • I embellished with Basic Pearls colored with a Dark Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blend.

It’s always fun to add just a little something to the inside.

So, add a few layers to a Kraft Note Card, build a Gingerbread House, add a little embossed snow and create something to send love!

… the only limitation is your imagination!
