Gingerbread House

    At last, I have been able to get another card ready for posting! This card holds a special place in my stack of cards; the gingerbread house was designed and made by me using PSP9. I wanted a gingerbread house but one that could be manipulated to be the focal point or used as a background; making it large or small. I was pretty pleased with how it turned out so I printed it out and colored it; by the time I got it colored I was thrilled, so decided to use it to highlight Pamela's stamp set "Holly Jolly Christmas"! I love how it looks like the elf is climbing out of the chimney!
     The roof on the house has white dimensional puff paint on it along with glitter. It's hard to get a good photo of the glitter but in real life it looks amazing! Mr. Elf has glitter on his hat, his pants and his slippers, he is just so cute! Don't you just love the look on his face!!
     I hope you have enjoyed my elf coming out of the chimney! Thanks for dropping in, I hope you are having a HOLLY JOLLY time getting ready for Christmas!

WOWZERS!! I love your Gingerbread house! Can I pay you for a copy of the digi? I used to make gingerbread houses with my kids and this would be wonderful on a scrapbook page with them.
