Gingerbread Fun!

Happy Monday All!

I can't believe another week is under way, the weekends are just too quick! Hope you enjoyed yours though!

I have a holiday themed card to share today. I've seen so many fabulous holiday cards lately, some people are even finished with their card lists for what they are mailing out this season. I haven't even really started, I need to get moving! I think Christmas is only about 40 days or so away, pretty crazy! I haven't started shopping yet either, big surprise!

Anyway, here's my card. I used this cute Rachelle Anne Miller image of a gingerbread man. He was easy to color and cut out, bonus! I added some CE and glitter to him too. I started to make this card for Beate's weekend sketch challenge, but it turned out a little different than the sketch. I like it though.

My cardstock colors are Riding Hood Red, Old Olive, White, and Baja Breeze. I ran the red through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder. I tied ribbon around the olive piece, add the white and then mounted those to the red. I added some snowflakes with baja ink to the white piece.

The final touches are a clip, a Very Merry tag and a snowflake button all attached to the ribbon. Then I also added some "snow" to the bottom of the gingerbread man. The snow is a snow writer pen thing that I got at the craft store.

Thanks for stopping by today, have a great Monday! Happy Stamping!! :)
