I used a few other challenges to help me make this card:
- Colour Q - cQc#239 - just love these colours
- Merry Monday - MM#106 - to feature a gingerbread man/woman
- Jingle Belles - JB:14:09 - to use at least three layers
I cut a couple of mat layers for the card; the pink layer was cut using the stitched square die from Lil Inkers - I do like the effect it gives. I stamped the gingerbread couple onto white card using the outline stamps, then stamped the clothes and finally die cut them using the matching dies. I stamped the top hat in Versafine to get a really deep, even black colour and fussy cut it out. I stamped the dotty banner and cut it out by hand. I finished the front with another stitched square, stamped the sentiment here and added a bit of holly and a couple of stars. On the inside I cut another mat in orange and stamped a few gingerbread babies and a sweet sentiment.
