A virtual crop and a gingerbread house!

Howdy folks, I love christmas crafting (well duh, you read my blog right?) and I have had an idea for making a gingerbread house that can be used as a decoration, gift box or ornament that you could cut with your Cricut machine and SCAL software. Well, yesterday I got around to designing it and I made a gingerbread house SVG kit with a bonus card and candy cane thing:

I added some chunky clear glitter to the gumdrops and inked the roof scallops to make the house more realistic looking, the longest part of the project was waiting for the glue and ink to dry! The card was an afterthought because I have some paper scraps left and I loved the layout of it so much I included it in the kit, the card only takes about 3 minutes to make so it is perfect for a batch of Christmas cards. I also added a candy cane with a shadow because it has a lot of uses too, be creative!

Here is a close up of the house:

And here is how the house opens if you want to put a gift inside:

of course if you want to make it an orniment you can poke a hole in the roof of the house and insert a ribbon loop then glue the roof shut, so many options! Here is a look at the Gingerbread House SVG set again, it’s only $3 at Lindsay’s stamp stuff!

this project qualifies for the following challenges: ABC Christmas Challenge (winter wonderland), Caardvarks (holiday and die cuts) and Little Red Wagon (use Red)

Also I want to let you know about the Thanksgiving weekend crop I’ll be hosing at the MyGrafico Community:

All you need to do is join the community (if you are not yet a member) and join the Crop Room and you will be all set to play with us Nov. 26-28, we will be making quick cards and whatever else you want to make, it will be fun and it sure beats shopping!

thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
