Stamp and colour Gingerbread House, using your preferred medium

Once the image is coloured, cut it out using an oval or circle die.

Leaving the Die in place, sponge around the house using Tumbled Glass distress ink.

When you remove the Die, you will have a white border all around the image.

Place the image on a piece of copy paper and cover the whole image with VersaMark embossing ink. Sprinkle the embossing powder over it, then shake off the excess. Use the copy paper to funnel the excess powder back into the jar.

Repeat until you have a thick layer of embossing. I put 5 layers on it. Pop the image into the freezer for about 3hrs.
