Karen Burniston November Design Team Challenge - Gingerbread House Christmas Card

It's Karen Burniston's Design Team Challenge time again, and this month the theme is 'Gingerbread'!!
I've made a few gingerbread house cards over the years, because I love them, and I just couldn't resist this time either!
Karen has the most beautiful House & Fence Pop-up die set which I used for this card. 
I used craft card stock, sponged with Tea Dye Distress Ink and 'iced' with White Opal Liquid Pearls, for most of the decorative elements.
The patterned paper is from First Edition's Christmas Wishes 12x12 pad.

I covered the floating floor with white glitter card, added borders to the top and bottom of the card, and used a die from the Katherine Label Pop-up die set, for the sentiment backing. The larger heart is also from this set. The 'Merry Christmas' is from the Word Set 3 - Holiday die set.

I also added bows to the fence, adapted from the Birthday Charms die set, and a little gingerbread man and trees from the Winter Charms die set. I hand cut a little bow tie for him.

To the top border, I also added some ribbon, Stampin' Up twine and Stampin' Up mini jingle bells.
I made a snowy hillside by cutting out by hand the slots to fit round the pop-up mechanisms, from some glitter card, and cutting the top stitched border with a die from the Nature Edges die set.

For the card front, I added another label from the Katherine Label Pop-up die set, and the larger gingerbread man form the Winter Charms die set.

I had such a good time creating this little scene!
