Color & Chat: Lawn Fawn Gingerbread from Sweet Christmas

Tuesday, July 11, 2023

We're back to Christmas in July with this month's Color & Chat video and coloring guide! I thought it would be fun to create a guide for gingerbread and holiday candies, so that's what today's video and post is sharing. You can check out my video down below to catch up with me and to see how I use my coloring guide, but I still wanted to share with you the details of how my card came together.

After I colored my images, I used my Scan N Cut to cut them out since I do not own the die set (but it's linked in my supply list in case you prefer using dies). I die cut a green panel for my background out of the retired Peace Joy Love Petite Paper Pack and added it to my card base. To create a frame, I used the Window Scene: Winter die set and cut out the striped frame as well as two more in a dark red cardstock. I glued these layers together and attached a panel of the holly design to the back.

The "merry" sentiment was die cut out of red glitter cardstock and two times in the same dark red cardstock, then glued together just like I did the frame. I also die cut a banner out of the cardstock and embossed "christmas" to complete my sentiment. I laid all of my elements onto the card base and once I was happy with the layout, I glued down the "merry" and frame to the card base. I layered the gingerbread house scene and used some foam adhesive while tucking the trees behind the house.

I used the same foam adhesive to attach my banner and cute gingerbread family. I hope this coloring guide is useful to you and that you're having some fun with coloring. If you're watching this during Prime Days, Ohuhu Markers are currently on sale, so check them out!
