Gingerbread House

I'll have to admit, I have not been big on making gingerbread houses even when my kids were little. My one attempt was a dismal failure so decided to put my creative talents elsewhere. So now, I can make gingerbread houses on cards.
The house stamp is Studio G, colored with pencils. The gumdrop border, sentiment, and gingerbread cookie are from a new set by Lawn Fawn. It comes with a coordinating die set which I will be going back to order. I stamped the gingerbread cookie on Kraft paper and fussy cut it out. Fussy cutting very many gingerbread cookies would get really tedious. I used a white gel pen to make the icing borders on the cookie, then sponged on some white ink to give it the dusted with sugar look. I used a red colored pencil to draw on the heart. The companion girl cookie is on the inside.
That sentiment is done on the computer.
This is from a sketch by Tuesday Morning Sketches
