Hello everyone! Today I am very excited to share with you a shaped card that I’ve wanting to do for several weeks…needed the time to just sit down and do it. All these pieces were put together with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® products 🙂 What do you think?!
Let’s start with the card base. I die cut two of the Gingerbread House Border die (the silhouette of the house) with Kraft cardstock. One of the die cuts, I nested the Border die and the House die together on top and embossed only. Now it becomes the front of the card and it will embed another die cut.
Scored part of the roof and chimney (about 1/2″ from top) of plain die cut. This will become the back of the card.
Cut and emboss the House die with white cardstock using my manual die cutting machine and taking out the die cut with my Tool ‘n One.
You will end up with these three house die cuts…
Apply Dual Tip Glue in the scored area and then marry the two die cuts until they become one shape.
Put the white house die cut back into the House die template and use as a stencil. Color through the die with Gelatos®. Then cover with Glass Bead Glitter Gel for sparkle and dimension. Repeat the same process with the candy dies.
After drying (don’t forget to clean your die!), I applied Dual Tip Glue on the back and fitted into the embossed design which creates an embedded look – I love this technique! Then add the candy die cuts using a combination of Dual Tip Glue and 3D Foam Squares – Black, Small.
The front door needed something – it has an embossed bow design but I wanted something BOLD so I took the Star from the 3D Foam Christmas Shapes set and colored it with Red Cherry Gelatos®. After it dried, I covered it with Glass Bead Glitter Gel. Let dry.
Here’s another look…
