Gingerbread House

Decided to do a bit of mixed media today and make a little gingerbread house.

I made the little box with a sheet of Kraftcard  and my Scorpal.  The house measures 3 inches square around and is 6 inches tall.

Handmade some freckles (not sure what everyone else calls them, but in Australia they are a round chocolate button with hundreds and thousands on top.)  I punched out 1 inch circles, added glue and then dipped them in some hundreds and thousands.

Now if you think glitter makes a mess, you haven't seen anything.  Firstly I used 3 different glues (it was really hot and humid here today and things were not sticking as they should) in hindsight I should have used a texture paste or made some royal icing, maybe next year.  I will be sweeping up and wiping away hundreds and thousand for days.

The house, once constructed has been covered with patterned paper.  I have added a doily, die cut windows and door. pieces from my stash including some snowflakes, candy canes, lots of gems, snow and of course the freckles.
