Gingerbread houses

I'm finally making a start on getting lots of Christmas cards made instead of the odd one here and there.  These are all made from one sheet of 12 x 12 DSP from SU which will be available to buy from 1st September - this pack of paper is just gorgeous.  really sweet designs and I love the Kraft and red colour scheme.

I cut this piece of paper into strips to make DL cards and added some co-ordinating cardstock which I used a punch border to create a decorative edge.  The sentiment comes from one of their new stamp sets which will also be available from 1st September.

After I had taken the photo I decided to add some Stickles to the rooftops for a little Christmas bling.  I managed to get five cards out of the strips and there are just a few scraps left which I will challenge myself to make something out of tomorrow.

On the reverse side of this paper are gumdrops, which would be great to fussy cut out and put inside a jar stamp that I know I have in my stash somewhere!

Absolutely gorgeous cards Linda! So festive and crisp in feel. I bet the rooftops look great with stickles added - fab idea. Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog too :)
