Sweet Treats Gingerbread House

Hello!! I hope everyone has had a great weekend, I am here today to share a little gift that I made for a friend of mine, now I know that she has received it I can share it with you.

As many of you know Crafter's Companion released some new embossing boards recently and they are quite simply AMAZING!!. I have adapted the birdhouse on the Sweet Things Board to become a Gingerbread House and here is what I came up with....
I used some kraft card stock to make the house itself, the board really does make it easy.
I decorated the roof with crackle paint, diamond sparkles and some gems which I thought looked just like sweets.
I also used the corresponding cd rom Sweet Treats to print some backing paper and cut out these sweets which I also added some spray and sparkle to.
I glued some hook and loop tape to one side of the roof so it can be opened like a box and as you can see added a couple of sweet treats.
I trimmed the house and top of the roof with some bakers twine and made a base for the house to stand on. I finally finished it all off with some wadding and more diamond sparkles for the snow. I die cut some Die'sire Fir Trees which I also decorated with the backing paper this time I used a small circle punch to make the sweets smaller. The cute little gingerbread man and sentiment are both freebie stamps which came with the latest Crafter's Inspiration. Here are a couple more pics....
Thank you for stopping by today, feel free to leave me a comment, I love to read them :0)

Bye for now
