Sending Cheer, Joy of Christmas, Christmas Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. Today I have a quick Christmas card for you to make. I'm trying to keep things simple this week. I do love layering but sometimes in making simple cards layers need to be omitted. But here I added a couple and left some pieces without. Please read on to see how I made today's card.

The base of the card is a folded half-sheet of Basic White card stock. It opens on the right and the fold is on the left.

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 it to the front of the card. 

Next I cut a 2" x 4-1/2" piece of DSP from the same package. I taped that to the left side of the card.

The gingerbread boy was stamped next on a piece of Basic White card stock using Pecan Pie ink. The hearts were stamped using Cherry Cobbler ink and the face was stamped using black Memento ink. The piece was then cut out with a die from the "Sending Cheer" bundle. 

I used the circles from the "Deckled Circles" die set for the gingerbread boy and the words. For the Gingerbread boy I used the 5th smallest one on Basic White card stock. And for the Cherry Cobbler layer, I used the 6th smallest one.

The words were stamped on a scrap piece of Basic White card stock using Pecan Pie ink and were die cut using the 2nd smallest die in the "Deckled Circles" die set and the Cherry Cobbler layer was die cut using the 3rd smallest die. I cut that circle from the center of the large Cherry Cobbler circle. I taped all the circles together.

I taped the largest circles on the front of the card, a little below center. I added the Gingerbread boy using Dimensionals. And then the words were added using Dimensionals and the card was done. 

This is a very quick and easy card to make. I LOVE gingerbread boys and I hope to make some more cards soon using this set.

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