Prepping for a Christmas card for this weeks classes . . . A lot of cutting.
When I saw the Candy Cane Lane Designer Series Paper in the new Holiday Catalog I fell in love with it, especially the cute gingerbread houses. I knew I would be fussy cutting them out for a Christmas card. I love every single sheet of paper in this package and love the colors too.
The card base is Early Espresso with a Real Red mat. There is only a 1/8" difference in sizes of the card base and the red mat and the white card stock so it's a little difficult to see in the photo. I cut out the gingerbread houses, some gingerbread men and a star. I used the Christmas Pines stamp set for this card. There is some embossing using the new copper embossing powder and I added the new copper metallic thread to the card behind the gingerbread house. The little strip of Early Espresso polka dot paper is from the Neutrals DSP paper stack.
Here's a look at the inside of the card:
