Well sadly this is very probably the last Christmas card I'll get to make this year, I really enjoyed making this little 5"x5" card using Amanda's Gingerbread men digi (available free with this months news letter) and one of the papers from her lovely GINGERBREAD PAPER PACK.

After overlaying the gingerbread men on the backing paper I printed out the whole card and cut away most of the card from behind of the gingerbread men, I then cut the bottom of the card with decorative edged scissors and overlayed it onto a strip of bright red Mirri card.

Inside the card I added a strip of bright green paper and edged it with gold peel offs so that it backed the gingermen.

The "Merry Christmas" sentiment was made using an art package, I cut it out and added it tot the card using foam pads then went over the letters, eyes and buttons with clear Sukura to make them glossy!

I hope you like it.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Well it's nearly that time of year again and I'm still making cards to send out as I go along, you would think by now I'd have got into the habit of making my cards earlier on in the year - but NO!!

I just love these new GINGERBREAD PAPERS from Amanda they are so crisp and clean looking and make a wonderful background to her FREEBIE Gingerbread man Digi (just sign up for her December news letter to receive him)

I coloured him digitally and used little dimensional eyes that move when you shake the card and added Glossy accents to his buttons, the 3 little punched red dots and the holly berries.
I really like this little 6"x6" simple but effective card and hope you do too.
