Sugar and Spice and All Things Nice

Hi Peeps,

Here's my card I made for the Bunny Zoe Blog using, another Christmas card using those cute little Mice from House-Mouse Designs - Gingerbread House.  I decided to go with untraditional colours.


I just love my new Tim Holtz Snowflake die.  I have covered the flakes in Diamond Dust. 




The icing on the gingerbread house was created using my puff paint and heated with a heat gun to get it to puff up, not sue if I went too mad.

Ingredients:-

Wooden Ornaments - Crystals embossed with silver embossing powder (currently sold out but just email Nikki, I'm sure she will let you know when they are due back in)
Bow tied with the Bow Easy
Stardust Stickles (love these)
Pearl Brads
Puff Paint for the icing
White Gesso
Cheesecloth
Diamond Glase on the Candy Stick and Sweet
Perfect Pearls around the Oval
Make It Crafty Lasercut Chipboard Corner, embossed with Silver Embossing Powder

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:-
Anything Goes - Stitches
CreativeCraft - Fancy Edges
Ladybug - Non traditional christmas
Papertake - Anything Goes
Allways Something Creative - sparkle
Cupcake Craftroom - Sweet Christmas
The craft garden - Christmas but no red or green

Well if you have gone a bit mad with the frosting it just means it was a heavier snowfall than was forecast. I love your card it is glorious. The sentiment is great fun and the gingerbread house and mouse is so 'sweet'. hugs heidi x
