Gingey

Welcome to another Merry Monday challenge!  This week, Kristie has challenged us to use a gingerbread man or woman on our cards.  Check out the adorable inspiration photo:



Whenever I think of gingerbread men, I think of the Shrek movies.  Love those movies!  

  
For my card, I used a Crumb Cake card base embossed down each side with the Needlepoint Embossing Folder.  The DSP is from a retired pack called Christmas Cocoa.  My gingerbread man is from the Scentsational Season set and clear embossed in Crumb Cake ink.  I then colored in the buttons and squiggles with markers.  My sentiment, which I thought pretty appropriate is from the Candyland set by Close to My Heart.

Thanks for looking.  Don't forget to check out the rest of the design team cards - they are amazing, as usual!

Products used:

Stamps:  Scentsational Season (SU), Candyland (CTMH)
Ink:  Versamark, Crumb Cake
Cardstock:  Crumb Cake, Real Red, Christmas Cocoa DSP
Accessories:  Hero Arts White EP, Circle Nestabilities, Holiday Collection Framelits, American Crafts Twine, Needlepoint EF (SU), Brights markers

Cheers
Karren

Ahh, that DSP is an old favorite! Gingerbread men make me think of the Shrek movies too and the time that a mouse climbed into my Christmas tree and ate the gingerbread men I had hanging there!

Hi Karren, I hope you are remaining dry in dear old Ch-Ch...what next ehh?? :-( I love your card, I nearly missed the XXXXX embossing, lovely. Fabulous sentiment to suit the theme too. Take care.
