Sending Cheers, Gingerbread Man Christmas Card, Stampin' Up! 2023

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a fun Christmas card to share with you. I love gingerbread men and I can't resist making a card using them. Please read on to see how I made today's card.

The base of my card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. I cut a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Joy of Christmas" 12" x 12" package. I taped that to the card base. Then I cut a 2" x 5-1/4" piece of DSP from the same package. I taped that to a 2-1/4" x  5-1/2" piece of Basic White card stock and I taped that to the front of the card. It's about 3/8" from the side edge of the card.

Three gingerbread men were stamped using Pecan Pie ink. I stamped the hearts using Real Red and the eyes and mouth using black Memento ink. I die cut them with the matching die from the "Sending Cheer" bundle. 

The words are from the same bundle and were stamped using Real Red ink. I punched them out using the "Double Oval" punch. And the layer behind it is a scrap piece of the same DSP that was used on the background. It was nice to use up that little scrap piece!  Working hard to use up my DSP! The ovals were taped together and Dimensionals were added to the back. I set them in place on the bottom right of the card about 1/8" from th eright side and 1/4" from the bottom.

The gingerbread men were set in place using Dimensionals. I did add a little dot of glue where they touched each other to make sure the limbs stayed down.  And the card was finished.  

Many times I notice something about the card once I see it posted on the page. I think it could use some bling. Some little rhinestones or tiny pearls. It needs something light in that dark green area. But all in all I do like how it turned out.

Thank you SO very much for taking your time to stop in and see today's Christmas card,
