Sending Cheer, Christmas Card, Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog. I can't believe it's November already. I will have some fall and Thanksgiving cards but for now I'm going to jump into a few Christmas cards. With Halloween out of the way I have more time for the other cards. 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 took a 4" x 5-1/4" piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the "Shining Bright" 12" x 12" package. I taped to the front of the card base.

Next I cut a 2-3/4" x 3-3/4" piece of Poppy Parade card stock and textured it using the "Snowflake Sky" embossing folder. I glued it to a 3" x 4" piece of Basic White card stock. Dimensionals were added to the back and the piece as set in place on the center of the card. Centered enough by eyeing it.

Two gingerbread boys were stamped using the image from the "Sending Cheer" set and Pecan Pie ink.  The heart "buttons" were stamped using Poppy Parade ink and the face was stamped using black Memento ink. I die cut them with the matching die. 

The words are from the same set and were stamped using Poppy Parade ink. I punched them using the "Double Oval" punch. I glued the piece in place on the lower left of the card and the card was done.

This was a fun card to make and I am pleased with the way it turned out. I LOVE gingerbread boys and this set is so cute. I think it was the gingerbread boy image that made me want to order this set.

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