Day Old Gingerbread

I did these before Christmas, and in all of the hubbub of Christmas, I didn't get these posted.  They are from the DoodleFactory Santa's Sweet Shoppe set.  (Click here for a discount code.)

I know you are probably all Christmas-ed out, but it is such a cute set!!! I just couldn't hold back!

Gingerbread house card

On the card, I clear embossed the house (stamped with VersaMark ink on watercolor paper) and watercolored it.

 Gingerbread house tag

The tag has the house embossed in white on brown cardstock.  To get the watercoloring to show up, I used pigment inks--including white on the icing portions.

I promise--no more Christmas for a while!! (notice: I didn't promise not to use Christmas STAMPS--just no Christmas themed projects for a while)Winking
