Christmas down Candy Cane Lane

I adore the Candy Cane Lane papers in the Autumn Winter catalogue.  The images used are gingerbread men, gingerbread houses and candy canes...with the added bonus that the candy canes are positioned to look like hearts. The colours are muted and look like gingerbread, sweets and icing...perhaps I need to get baking!
I was reticent to cut into the paper with the gingerbread houses looks too good to cut into...but at the same time I have promised myself that I will use my paper and not hoard it.  So, I took the plunge with my 2" circle punch and cut out one of the smaller houses.  Now I think it looks great layered up with coordinating cardstock circles with the finishing touch comeing in the form of an adorable Christmas trinket tied on to some Real Red stitched edge ribbon.

A few more of these will be made before too long I'm sure.  I wonder if you like the Candy Cane Lane papers as much as I do?
