On the fifth day of Christmas . . .

Welcome to Day Five of's 3rd Annual 25 Days of Crafting Showcase!  Each and every day from December 1st through December 25th the 25+ Design Team members will be bringing you tons of holiday inspiration, daily freebies and weekly giveaways.

Our theme today is:  Gingerbread and/or Baking!  And just wait until you see the freebies Melin has cooked up for you today!  They are adorable!

I created a shaped card for today's theme:

Here's the recipe:
  • The gingerbread house is from the Cricut My Community cartridge.  I pulled it up in my Cricut Design Studio, duplicated it, flipped one of the houses around and then welded it on the bottom edge (you could also do this on a Gypsy or in the Cricut Craft Room).  It is cut at 4 1/4" tall from kraft card stock.
  • Then I got busy and Stickled it to death! LOL!
  • The inside sentiment is a rubber stamp by Great Impressions, Centralia, WA.

This card will be joining some others I have made for my teammate Madison's "I Feel the Love" Project.  IFTL is collecting handmade cards for children who will be at the Children's Hospital Central California through the holidays.  For more information on how you can help, please see Madison's website.

Now I hope you'll head on over to and check out what the other Designer's have created.  And make sure to mark your calendars and check back in with us each and every day through Christmas for tons of inspiration, freebies and weekly giveaways!

This shaped card is just lovely! I love all the glitter too. It reminds me of a card we would have received when I was a child.
