Creative Tuesdays: Gingerbread Gingerbread House


Since I knew I'd not have as much time as liked on this theme, I decided to take a simpler approach for a card of sorts -- a Christmas Gingerbread Igloo Xmas tree decoration! The baubles are meant to represent silver ball embellishments inside the piping but didn't quite work out. Well, at least I got it done!

Now, time to see what the rest of you put up, with Lissa already leading the way. Thank you.

  2. Yes, I think I am rather stretching the definition of a gingerbread house, I ralise, but that is what came to mind and it does show a house and gingerbread! Lol. Thank you. And yes, I wanted it to be VERY simple and clean. :) Thanks Christine. Need to check out your piece...later, when my work is all done. :)

  4. an igloo is a house so it make sense for the theme. I would probably add some more elements to make more colorful but that's me. I do like the all white on dark color. the snowflakes are wonderful.

    have a lovely day.

  6. Michael, sorry I couldn't make it happen this time. In the past couple of months, we've had two funerals, 1 wedding and a 80th Birthday for a friend. I'm feeling my age, and had to get some Christmas baking done. I hope January will bring a new surge of inspiration for my art.
    Love and Hugs...
