I'm submitting this card to a few challenges:
- Colour Q - cQc#321
- CAS Colours & Sketches - CASC&S#154 to use a previous 2015 sketch #139
- Merry Monday - MM#184 - where the theme is baking
When I saw that the Merry Monday theme was baking I knew that I wanted to use my little gingerbread stamps. The colours at Colour Q are just perfect for a festive look. I stamped three gingerbread kids in Versmark on kraft card and heat embossed them with clear powder, and then I stamped two red and two green gingerbread kids. I cut them all out with the coordinating dies. In my stash I found the perfect design paper - Gingerbread, by Kaisercraft - and used a piece that reminded me of icing on gingerbread to cover the bottom of the card. I cut a panel of white card, stamped the sentiment and then embossed it for more detail. I finished the front by adhering the gingerbread kids. On the inside I used another piece of design paper for the mat layer and on the white panel added a Christmas greeting, along with a couple more gingerbread kids!
On Facebook I've seen photo that my friends and family have posted of their wonderful Christmas trees. We don't have ours up yet, so I think today I'm going into the basement to find the tree and all the decorations and make our house look festive too! That's all for now. See you tomorrow.
