This is a fun card that can be as easy or difficult as you want it to be.  Its also quite a good card to make if you want to keep children entertained with a Christmas craft project.

Basically, take one of Regal's square white cards, Add a triangle of card for the roof and then go wild with the decoration!!!  I've kept this example fairly low key, using scrapbooking papers, a punched border, and white heart and greeting stickers, but you could use rhinestones, stamps, punched shapes or whatever you have at hand.

The gingerbread man was cut by folding a scrap of paper in half and cutting free hand until one turned out well enough to use as a template for the "real thing", but you could also trace around a biscuit cutter, use a stamp, or download something from the net.  The white detail and border was added the old-fashioned way with a white gel pen.
If you didn't want a Christmassy theme, try adding turrets for a fairy castle or fort, or just make "a house"..........if you are doing it as a project with the kids, no doubt they'll have good ideas....but actually its rather a fun idea for us grown ups too.....perhaps as a "New Home" card?
