Gingerbread Scene

Another Christmas card today, using a die set and paper that I got as birthday presents and had itchy fingers to play with.  I have to say, that the gingerbread house die set from Xcut is such fun to use, as it has so many elements to add interest to the cottage, and to build up a super cute little festive scene.
 The backing paper is from a Crafter's Companion pad called Contemporary Christmas, a lovely selection in soft blues and purples, I thought it made the perfect backdrop to the sweet scene.  I used white card, which I tore to create the snowy foreground, and a selection of plain coloured card for the die cuts.  The only other embellishments I added were a few tiny seed beads for the eyes and buttons on the gingerbread man. The only die set I used was the Xcut Gingerbread House set, and this card doesn't even include all the dies!
