Hi everyone! I’m stoked to be back on the Eyelet Outlet blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! I created a fun Christmas card in a traditional gingerbread house theme which features some straight-up a-DOR-able brads!
I had a sweet gingerbread house digital stamp set in my stash which I used for the background on this card. I cut a standard A2 size top-folding card base from ivory cardstock along with red cardstock and kraft cardstock layers that I adhered together. I printed the gingerbread house on ivory cardstock, cut it in half and trimmed it, and adhered it to the background layers. I added four Gingerbread Brads (two couples holding hands, lol) and adhered the panel to the card base. I added several Ivory Enamel Dots and a stamped sentiment.
Here’s a close-up of those adorable Gingerbread Brads – you know you need some for your stash, lol! ;)
I embellished the inside panel with a wide horizontal strip of red cardstock, stamped the sentiment in red ink, and layered the panel on kraft cardstock.
And one more look… such an adorable scene! Absolutely loving those brads!
