Sweet Shoppe Gingerbread House


I made today's card using a Starving Artistamps Doodlefactory set called Santa's Sweet Shoppe. The saying is from the matching sentiment set called Holiday Sweet Shoppe Sentiments. I just love how the Doodlefactory sets have clever, punny sayings to go with them. I used this great sketch from Rubber Stamp Chat September Sketch Challenge. The card is 5-1/2 inches square. The snowflake panel is on shimmery white cardstock embossed with a cuttlebug folder. It's hard to see in the photo, but all the peppermint candies are covered with versamarker and clear embossing powder. The frosting and gumdrops are covered with glitter pens, making for a festive, sparkly card in real life. :) The border punch on the green panel is by EK Success. The red designer paper is from an old SU! pack and I found the perfect plaid ribbon in my stash. :)

Thanks for looking and have a blessed day!
