Gingerbread House by Julie Lavalette


Hi Cheery Lynn friends, it's JULIE here today sharing with my card using the adorable new Gingerbread House. This House reminded me of the story Hansel and Gretel and this is where my inspiration for this card came from.


My background was cut out in black card highlighting all the stitches around the edges with a white pen. I sprinkled on some chunky white Embossing Powder and heat set it to give a snowy look. My Icicles were cut out in white cardstock, spray adhesive added onto it and a layer of extra fine glitter.


My Trees and Grass were cut out in green and glitter added in the same way as the Icicles.


My Gingerbread House I cut out twice. My top layer in Kraft card and I shaded it with Copic Pens and used my Fineliner Pen in to all the embossed grooves to highlight it. My underneath layer my die was used to emboss onto white cardstock and I coloured with Copics before adding behind my card. Please check out the Cheery Lynn video HERE on how to do this technique. Finally adding an extra layer of glittered Icicles to my house.
