Karen Burniston's December Designer Challenge 'Home for the Holidays' Gingerbread House Stand Up Card

 It's the last Designer Challenge of the year, and this month the theme is 'Home for the Holidays'.
I know I've done gingerbread house cards in the past, but I really enjoy them, and thought I'd make one on a pop stand this time. (Apologies for the gloomy photos - it's a dismally grey day here today.)

This will be my last spot on Karen's Design Team for a while, as I'm taking a break while I get on with my Fire Fighter training in the new year! I'll look forward to seeing what the rest of the team come up with in 2016!!

I started with some card 6 inches wide, and cut the pop stand from the Barn Pop Stand set into it.
I stuck a folded over piece of card to the two sides of the pop stand to make a background for me to stick my scene to. I started off with some trees cut from the Outdoor Edges set.

I used dies from the Holiday House set to make a house with two additional wings to it, and outlined everything with dots of Liquid Pearls.
I added another layer of snowdrifts either side if the house, and cut a path by hand.

I added strips of card from First Edition's 'Nordic Christmas' 12x12 pad to the borders of the card, and added a couple of bows, with a snowflake decoration.
