Want some Gingerbread???

Sooooo, I had placed an order with All that Scraps a couple of weeks ago, and ordered what I *thought* was brown liquid applique. Well, when I got it home, turns out it was a 'velvet' paint pen...hmmmmm.....

Then I thought, well, what can I do with this?? It's not going to puff up quite like the liquid applique does, and then BOOM, it hit me. Gingerbread.

What?? Gingerbread.


Do you have Boards and Beams from PTI??? I do. And it would make the cutest little gingerbread house, don't you think??? See for yourself...





Cute, right???? The roof tiles were colored in to look like gumdrops, finished off with SU Chunky glitter...I really love how this came out.

And do you recognize the inhabitant of the home??? He's the little gingerbread man from the Holiday Treats set...is he NOT the perfect size?? really.

I made the walkway and the trees to look like more gumdrops and those jellied fruit slices...SUCH FUN I had with this card...

Here it is in it's entirety...

Everything is up on dimensionals...for a little extra oomph.

I think maybe I'll tackle a real gingerbread house with DD this year...I haven't done one since I was a kid...
