Gingerbread House Card - December Blog Hop with Lori Whitlock

Hello everyone! Today is Lori Whitlock's December Blog Hop and my blog is the first stop on the hop. But be sure to visit Lori's site too because she has a sale and more great products for you! 

It's also National Gingerbread House Day, so ... I decided to make a Christmas card using one of Lori’s fun new files called 5x7 Insert Card House. I decorated it like the sweet treat and I think it turned out pretty cute!

Christmas Gingerbread House Card made with a Lori Whitlock cutting file

To start, I cut out all the pieces with my Silhouette machine. I used white cardstock for the base and paper from a collection Lori designed for Echo Park called Have A Holly Jolly Christmas (links below).

I used the 6x6 paper pad. The house was Cookie Stockings, the roof was the Dashing Deer stripe, and the door and window sills were the green Jolly Snowflakes. I also added a few 12x12 solids in red and green.

I cut the file out 3x in different papers to create the separate pattern pieces, then snipped out
the individual shapes. I inserted the red background piece and layered the house and the roof shapes onto the white base.

To embellish, I chose the bow, holly, and gingerbread cookie stickers from the 12x12 sheet, the Happy Holidays die cut from the Frames & Tags Ephemera, and some pretty red enamel dots. The scalloped border sticker is from the Doodlebug Design, Gingerbread Kisses Collection.

Here is the cutting file that I used ...
