"Shape-ing Up" with Jingle Belles

The new challenge at Jingle Belles is to create a shaped Christmas card; anything other than a square or rectangle.

I wanted to come up with a card that looked like a gingerbread house, so I played around with my Cricut Explore and Design Space to come up with this card.

I welded two of the house base images together along the left roof line, then scored to create the card fold. The wreath and Christmas lights were done with the print-then-cut feature and adhered with foam adhesive for a little dimension.  I added Stickles to the roof trim, the lights and the snow at the bottom, and just a few touches on the wreath for a little sparkle.  The doorknob is actually a gold brad; I just clipped off the prongs and adhered the top with a glue dot.  Thanks for the challenge, Jingle Belles!
