Gingerbread House

I have another Stamping Bella card to show you. I bought this stamp months back and I was super excited to finally started with Christmas cards. I made some already, but those were mostly for the design teams that I'm in. 

For this card I used Gingerbread House from Stamping Bella. Image was stamped with Archival ink on Langton 300g HP watercolour paper and then coloured with Distress ink pads.


I also used the sentiment "From our Home to yours" from the same set. I didn't use a lot of die cuts or embellies on this card. Image is so awesome that it really doesn't need any extras, right?!

Candy canes die is from la-la land crafts. You can get it HERE.
