Gingerbread Card and More!

As I was looking at this card I was thinking that this would be SO cute on top of a stack of recipe cards. Don't you think so? Instead of the "Merry Christmas" wording it could read "Holiday Recipes." Hmmm, it's got me thinking now. I just may have to give that a try.

For this card I used Real Red and whisper White card stock. I used the retired "Gingerbread man" wheel and the dotted stamp from the "Itty Bitty Backgrounds" set by Stampin' Up! I used watercolor crayons ot color in the gingerbread boys and hearts. And I used the Real Red ink pad for the dotted background. The "Merry Christmas" is from the "All Holidays" set and I used black Staz On ink.

As you can see I'm SO good with the wheels!!! LOL I can't even begin to tell you how I wish that were true. I practiced on some scratch paper. I drew a line and I followed that line perfectly. I did this 3 times and all 3 I got it SO straight. SO I set my card stock down and off to the left I go!!! EVERY time!!! GRRRRR!!! Maybe I should have drawn a light pencil line on my card stock and it would have went straight!!! LOL It's close but it's still off. And I know, it's like I tell my stampers, "it's handmade after all!!!!!" Do we ever listen to the advice we give out???

I tied a raffia bow and added a little wooden rolling pin I got at Michael's a few years ago. But I did order some more at Create for Less. They are the exact same ones I bought a few years ago. I painted the handles first and set them aside to dry and by the time I was ready to assemble the card they were dry and ready to go!!

This was another fun and quick card. Again this one would require extra postage to mail. But I'm REALLY leaning towards that recipe card thing!!! I'll make one (hopefully this weekend) and post it here when I do.

Thank you SO much for stopping by,
