My sweet friend gifted me with this cute Gingerbread house die, so I made a Christmas card with it using some very old self-adhesive cardstock I bought from QVC back when they sold craft supplies. The adhesive backing is weathered from age, so I had to give it a little help with some fresh adhesive, but it worked! I die cut the house from tan, and then fussy cut a solid piece of white that was traced around the die. I ran it through my Xyron to lay down some overall adhesive, then placed the die cut on top and pressed that down. Next I sprinkled on some sparkly glitter and pressed it down into the die with a bone folder. I die-cut a postage stamp rectangle from coordinating cardstock and placed it over 3 strips of blue on top of a navy cardstock base. The sentiment is from SNSS, heat embossed with white on navy and matted with matching cardstock from the gingerbread house. This is a rare glittered card from me as I do not like working with glitter, but this house just needed some sparkle and I was happy with the way it turned out. Here's a close up of the glitter....click to make larger.
