Paper Sweeties December Release Rewind - Gift Set

Hi there!

It's the last day of the Paper Sweeties December Inspiration, and the rest of the Design Team as well as myself are bringing you projects that mix some old with the new! 

I have a sweet little card and altered legal pad that comes with a matching pen to share today.  These are perfect for teachers, school office staff, neighbors, co-workers, family members....just about anyone. I love making them and the recipient always enjoys getting them. 

So here we go!
I took the Paper Sweeties Stand Add-On-5 and I made a little gingerbread house out of it. I added the two sweet Gingers from Ho Ho Ho that was released last month. Tip: Order the Bundles and save. Ho Ho Ho is a set that has coordinating dies. The sentiment and sweet candy canes are from the current December release Have a Holly Jolly Holiday.

Now onto the card:
I used Sweet Cuts for Miss Emma and paper-pieced and colored her new outfit from Have a Holly Jolly Holiday.  I stamped and die-cut the Gingers again from Ho Ho Ho.  I rolled stamped my sentiment to give it an Ombre look and I added three sweet little stamped images from this new released stamp set as well. Little embellishing touches here and there completes the look and you have a sweet little matching set. 

I hope you will visit the rest of the Design Team to see what they have created today!
