stamps: gingerbread houses

Image from:
These new holiday stamps capture the delicious tradition and childlike nostalgia of making gingerbread houses. Stumbling across a magical cottage made of cake and candy, Hansel and Gretel knew just how special gingerbread houses could be-but no witches will jump out of these confectionery domiciles. Instead, the Gingerbread Houses stamps will add a touch of whimsy to your holiday mail.

These stamps feature four different gingerbread houses set against a bright blue background. Made with gingerbread and royal icing, each house has sugary fruit slices for shingles, peppermint sticks for support beams, and round, candy-coated chocolate for doorknobs and holly berries, and yet each is unique.

Sally Andersen-Bruce was the photographed the houses, created by baker Teresa Layman. Art Director   Derry Noyes designed the stamps. Gingerbread Houses is being issued as a Forever® stamp.

p.s. I don't know about you guys, but this is the stamp I will be picking up to put on my Christmas cards this year!
