Gingerbread Cookie

Hi Bloggers.

I had a lovely day at Amelia's Crafts in Studley yesterday. Lovely store if you're in the area anytime, it's well worth a visit.

Here's today's card -

I started by stamping the Creative Expressions Gingerbread Cookie Stamps to Die For onto Milk Card using Onyx Black Versafine Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Creative Expressions Santa's Sentiments Stamp Set in the centre. I cut out using the largest die in Sue Wilson's Scalloped Snowflake Frame Die Set.

I coloured the gingerbread men in by adding some Terracotta CS Chalk Cloud to my Craft Sheet and picking it up with a Water Brush. I coloured the ribbons on the image with Rich Crimson Intense Pigment Stain - I popped a drop in a Palette and picked it up with the tip of a Water Brush. I added the buttons using Christmas Red Stickles.

I cut the largest die in the Scalloped Snowlake Frame again but this time out of Rich Red Card. I cut the largest die in Sue's Looped Snowflake Frame out of Antique Gold Pearl Card and stacked all my die cuts up.

For the background, I ran a piece of Milk Card through the Spellbinders Platinum Machine with the Gingerbread Men Mask. Leaving the mask in place, I inked through it with Terracotta CS Chalk Cloud using a  Smoothie. I removed the mask and inked around the edges with Terracotta Chalk Cloud. I matted onto Rich Red Card and then Antique Gold Pearl Card.

I cut the corner from Sue's Poinsettia Flourish and Corner Die Set out of Rich Red Card 4 times and added them to the corners of my background using CS Glue in a Woodware Fine Tip Glue Applicator.

Thanks for stopping by.
