Winter Wonderland - Gingerbread

Hi folks, and happy Sunday to ya!

Time for another Winter Wonderland theme to get you ready for Christmas, and it's a yummy one today, as we want to see all things Gingerbread!!

A big thank you to all who entered our Sleigh Bells theme last week - such a lot of variety out there! Another big thank you to our sponsor this week, the lovely Regina at the Cutting Cafe. She is offering three digi's to the winner - yeay!

I chose to use a combination of two sets I had recently purchased at Scrapbooking Mad, both on a Gingerbread theme - these are all downloadables, perfect!

I made a step card this time for a change, by printing my backing paper (Tinker & Co) onto card, and then folded it to get the result I wanted (took a couple of tries to get it right!). Then I printed out the elements onto a glossy card - you get a deeper, richer colour on glossy. Then I added a couple of die cut holly leaves, a bow and some snow paint and glitter snow.

The bag was really simple, using one of Regina's templates to cut it out, then stick together. I printed a couple of Gingerbread people from the set and stuck them on the bag, along with the fold-over top attached with staples. Topped off with a bow. Job done!

Such a lot of inspiration from the DT this week too - why don't you get over to Winter Wonderland and take a look!

First, I saw that you're a winner this week at Stamp, Scrap & Doodle. Yay, congrats!!!!!!
Now on to this incredible set! The bag is fantastic. I does look easy to create. That card, look at all the detail in it. This looks like a lot of work, but it has great pay off in the end!
