Gingerbread House With Card - Doodlebug Design Team Project

Hello there, I have a Christmas project to share using Doodlebug Design's new Milk and Cookies collection. I love all of Doodlebug's collections, each and every one are absolutely adorable, but I always look forward to their Christmas one and this is fantastic!!

The hardest thing about making Doodlebug projects is picking out what I'm going to use, everything is just so darn cute. I figured with all the sweets in this collection I had to make a gingerbread house and then I thought a pantry card would go with it perfectly to make a nice gift set.

For the card I used the armoire shaped card from Lori Whitlock's shop, I altered it a little so my stickers would fit in each cutout and I didn't want the doors to open.  I used Doodlebug's 6 x 6 pad for the patterned paper on the doors and the striped back panel, the candy christmas paper is from the 12 x 12 paper pack .  All the stickers are from the milk & cookies icon sheet and the this & that sticker sheet. I used a piece of ladybug chunky twine at the top and holly berries shaped sprinkles for the knobs.

I had so much fun making this house, I used another cut file from Lori Whitlock's shop, the gingerbread house, I altered this one also, I wanted the dear santa brick paper on the walls all to go the same direction, so a little rearranging fixed that.  For the trim and roof, I used the santa sweet paper and then embellished the house with icon stickers, sweet spruce and jolly gingerbread doodlepops, some sugarplumchristmas glitter and candy cane sprinkles. I used some liquid applique and glitter around the door, windows, and chimney.

Here's a top view of the house, the chimney didn't come with it, I made it so the adorable santa chimney sticker would fit nicely, I also added the snowy top layer.

The house can be used as a luminary, I put vellum in all the windows and added two battery lights inside.
