The Cuttlebug Challenge this week is to create a box or bag and a
card to go with your chosen party theme. I was waiting for this
template to become available. It was finally released at midnight,
and I knew it would make a perfect gingerbread house. I feel lucky
to have finished this project as everyone in the house is sick right
now, including me. But projects are waiting, so I must carry on! The
box is Lauren Meader's Timeless Template "On the House." I actually
made two and glued them together to make a house.
I then covered the house with DP and made CS shingles using a
Fiskar's Threading Water punch. I used a Cropadile to punch holes
in the roof handle and threaded grosgrain ribbon through the holes.
I made a CS fence using a MS Picket Fence punch. I embossed CS
using the Cuttlebug Dotted Swiss folder.
I stamped the Gingerbread people and colored them with gel pens. Then I embossed CS using the Cuttlebug Forest Branches, stamped trees, and colored them with gel pens too. I cut windows using Creative Memories punches. I added a wreath that was purchased at Big Lots to the door. I used the same papers to make a coordinating gift card. Pop dots were used to add dimension to the gingerbread people and trees.
This project also fits "Scrappy Frogs", anything in 3D Challenge.
Gingerbread stamp is Imaginese. DP is Paper Pizazz "Red Holly." CS, tree stamp, and ribbon are Hobby Lobby.
