When I got home I remembered that I still have a really old wood mounted gingerbread man stamp and decided to make some gingerbread men themed cards to add to my cards for Dotty's Tea House Christmas market on 2 December.
It was also time for my next Funkie Junkie inspired card.If you would like to play along with this fun Christmas challenge please check out Linda's post here which gives all the details of the challenge requirements. The challenge is sponsored by The Funkie Junkie Boutique and you could even win one of the prize vouchers if you complete all 12 weeks.
I loved Linda's kraft and white colour scheme she used for week 6 which I used for my inspiration. I also incorporated the heart, white die cuts, the gingham ribbon and the white embossing paste she used.
I decided to use white texture paste through my favourite Tim Holtz holiday knits stencil. It never quite matches when you repeat it but I was able to hide that part under the die cuts.
I stamped and white embossed my sweet gingerbread man onto kraft card and fussy cut him out.
I die cut some other Christmas elements and then put on my creative hat.
Below is my finished card. I resisted my usual urge to ink all the edges of my die cuts as I thought that a fresh white look was more appropriate for my card.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;
