A sweet holiday

 Hi guys, Julie here today with another card project! I am using the gingerbread lane stamp set for this project. I wanted to make the images look like actual gingerbread and make my card look like a gingerbread of a cookie. I think I achieve that look and I love the result. 

I started by stamping the images on a kraft cardstock with versamark ink. Then, I heat embossed with white powder. Then, I decided to enhance the look of cookie with my polychromos pencils. I wanted a grainy look and coloring pencils gives me just that. I love how it made the white lines look like frosting on the gingerbread house.

After that, I used a waved pierced rectangles dies for the background. I thought they look like cookie dough or a big cookie. So, I cut the biggest one on the same kraft cardstock and I darkened the edges with vintage photo distress ink. This is my absolute best combination to make this kind of look. For the smaller panel, I used a smaller rectangle die with white cardstock. I inked half of it with twisted citron distress ink and the other half antique linen distress ink. I added a small touch of vintage photo distress ink on the edges to make sure that the panel would fit with the rest. After that, I couldn't resist to add white splatters, because it always adds something to my finished piece. 

Finally, I cut a green cardstock at 4 1/4 and 5 1/2, the size of an A2 card, for my base. I foam mounted the smaller piece of die cut panel and added the assembled the images on top of it. I stamped the sentiment on a white cardstock with versafine onyx black ink, to have a crisp impression. Then, I cut my strip and added it to my finished card. For embellishment, I added some pearls. I really think that it gives the impression of a gingerbread cookie and I love the end result, and I hope you like it too. 

I really hope you liked my project today, thank you for stopping by and have an awesome day!
