Welcome! For today's card I put down my In the Meadow stamp set--it was tough though! ;-) You know how much I like to color, right? The PTI Tremendous Treats: Christmas set was another great match for me this month, and I kept the card Easy to Make, Easy to Mail as well.
These are the Copic markers that I used to color the Gingerbread Boy Man. (Having flashbacks of my Papa Vickery reading the Gingerbread Boy book to me as a child--did you read that book? My grandfather was the BEST with a wolf voice! I trembled in giggly fear as that silly gingerbread boy started getting wet and climbed farther toward the wolf's face!)
Besides the gingerbread man from Tremendous Treats: Christmas, I used a sentiment from Tiny Treats: Christmas and a background stamp from Polka Dot Basics II. I used some glossy dimensional glue on the buttons and eyes to give them a shiny, raised surface. The focal image is cut and embossed with a Spellbinders Standard Circles Small die, and the sentient is stamped on a Nested Lacey Pennants die cut. I tried something different with the banner sentiment; I love for banners to extend past the edge of the card, but unless you make the card more narrow than usual, an extended banner won't fit into a standard envelope. I used a circle die (Standard Circles Small again) to cut through just the front of the card so that I could extend the banner into the missing area. I'm still not sure whether this works for me or not--maybe if I'd made it look like a bite out of a cookie? I don't know--still thinking on that one! That's it for tonight; thank you for stopping by.
