Gingerbread house Christmas card

Back to card making today. I have been busy making an advent calendar the last few days but that is finished now so back to the Christmas cards. When my niece picked up her advent calendar today she asked me to make some cards for her teachers, here is the first one

I have matt and layered my 8x8in white card with red card, white embossed card and green and white gingham card. I have used red satin ribbon down the centre of the card. I have die cut the gingerbread house with a Xcut die. I have cut the gingerbread men using a Cheery Lynn die. I have die cut the scalloped ovals with Go Kreate dies. The white scalloped oval will include a personalised sentiment when I know the details.

I would like to add my card into the following challenges:
