I wanted to make a little card and surprise
Kelly! So, that is her inside the house and me dropping by to deliver a
sweet gumdrop! hee hee. Love this set so much, it’s so easy to get
creative with it!
Adding rock candy distress Stickles to the
gumdrops make them look exactly like, well, — gumdrops, yay! Once I got
started with the glitter I couldn’t stop, so I put a heavy line of it
along the roof (which took forever to dry, but was so worth it!), and
then brushed some on the window, the scallops, and the bows in the
gingerbread girls’ hair too!
I just had to stamp the “sweet” in neon pink ink to make it really stand out!
After cutting open the door with a craft knife, I lined it with some of the green chevron paper from the fa la la 6×6 pack. A little gem serves as a door knob. 🙂
To finish off the card, I couldn’t resist adding some peppermint trimmings! I think it goes perfectly with the sweet candy theme.
One last little tip! When you’re coloring the gingerbread girls, if you get marker on their icing have no fear! Just go over it with a white pen later and no one will ever know! Plus it adds that little extra something.
Another sweet surprise:
