I can't stop thinking about gingerbead...
All night while I was supposed to be sleeping I was planning this card in my head...
I started with a white card stock base card and added the brown "gingerbready" card stock layer, then the patterned grey paper that looked like snow.
The Big Kick was next with the "gingerbready" and white card stock and Paper Smooches "lighthouse" die in each color.
I used white card stock and the Paper Smooches "Borders 1" die to make the snow for the front edge of the card.
A quick tip...when you want to place things "in" snow mounds glue only the bottom and two sides.
This allows to to glue "in" the other items.
I used the gum drop die from Paper Smooches "gingerbread house" with red, green and yellow card stock to cut out all the lights for the lighthouse.
Another tip ... use painters tape for all the little gum drops so you don't loose them before you glue them down.
The gingerbread boy from Paper Smooches "gingerbread house" was the last to get cut out.
Glue everything down as per my example...or what ever you like.
To finish I added the "holiday cheer" using Paper Smooches "Christmas Sampler" stamp set and Distress hickory smoke ink.
Wonder what I will dream up tonight???
