Yes, you read my title correctly - I used a sketch that Theresa shared over in our StampTV Scrapbook Challenge on Tuesday and liked it so much that I decided to make a card out of it! To see the details of Theresa's challenge, check out her discussion HERE.
Just look at all these fun patterned papers that work perfectly with Gina's Gingerbread House image from the Holiday Cheer stamp set found exclusively in her Holiday Cheer StampTV kit ...
Don't you just want to lick the paper and/or the candy house? lol! When I taught 2nd & 3rd grade every Christmas for our class party we'd make gingerbread houses together. It was so fun to see the students creativity and then I'd get to send them home on a suger high! lol! Those poor parents... heehee...
To make the images shine even more and coordinate with the glittery paper, after I colored the image, I dabbed Versamark over the entire panel. Sprinkled with SU's Iridescent Ice embossing powder and zapped with my heat tool and it became just as sparkly as the patterned papers I used. This technique is one of my favorites because they glittery embossing powder doesn't flake off or smear like glitter or stickles can tend to do.
Here's the inside - I was thinking of the Reindeer delivering Christmas presents while the little ones have 'sugar plums dancing in their heads'... you know the book, right?
Sweet dreams and treats, everyone!
