Sweet Wishes

Happy Thursday High Hopes Fans! 

It's Christmas in July on the High Hopes blog and today I am sharing a card using an older High Hopes image called "Gingerbread House". This one caught my eye when I saw it....maybe it's because it spoke to my sweet tooth lol. 

This super cute gingerbread house is coloured with alcohol markers and cut out using a stitched square die. Spectrum Sparkle pens were used to colour in the lollipops so they sparkle even though that's hard to see in the photo. The sentiment was done on my computer. Stampendous Snow was added to the front edge of the house. I LOVE this product - it has yellow, pink and blue flecks in it and you don't need to use Versa Mark ink with this one. It is sticky on it's own so you can move it around to put it exactly where you want it before heat embossing it - so fun!! 
I edged the square with antique linen distress ink, added some pink circles cut with a die to the edges and finished it off with some ribbon and an icicle border die. A little bling is brought to the corners with some sparkly gumdrops - perfect for a gingerbread house don't you think?
