Gingerbread House made easy!

Are you ready for an easy card design?


To make this card’s focal image, I fussy cut a gingerbread house from a piece of Candy Cane Land patterned paper. Easy peasy! The two backgrounds were equally simple. The snowy paper is taken from Serene Scenery DSP, which features a photo scene on the reverse and to make the gingerbread background, I randomly stamped this cute cookie image onto white card stock.


The finished card measures 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ (standard US card size) and it side folding. The cookie background is cut 1/4″ smaller and stamped in first and second generational ink (second generation ink = stamp off first). The inner panel paper measures 2 1/2″  with a border of Crumb Cake card stock cut 1/8″ larger. The twine bow has just the right amount of sparkle that balances with the clear sparkly sequins.



Here is a list of supplies I used to make this card project. Links are here that you can click to get product info and purchase items as well. Thank you for your support with your purchase 🙂

Thank you for stopping by the blog today. Do you make Christmas cookies? My family makes them each year and I love working with these cookie images.  Let’s make it together!

YOUR Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator

As Demonstrators prepare for OnStage in November, we will all be busily making “swap” cards. For those unable to go to OnStage, they do not get to experience the swap on a large scale. If you would like to participate in an “Across the Miles Swap”, please contact me to sign up. Here is how it will work: You will need to sign up to participate by November 15th. Once we close off the sign up date, I will contact you to let you know how many cards to make for swap. You will get back as many as you send in. If you want to swap one card, then sign up to send in one card. If you want to swap with all participants, I will let you know how many to make and that’s how many you will send in and get back. This is a great way to share your work with others and to see what everyone else is doing. I do not anticipate this swap to go too big but if it does then I will break us into groups so as not to have everyone make a ton of cards. Are you ready to join the swap? You have until Nov 15th to sign up. Let’s make it together!


Are you interested in purchasing one of the finished cards I have featured on a blog post? Visit my Etsy shop at for a small selection. If the card you are looking for is not there, drop me a note and I will place it in the shop for you. -Jenny xoxo
