I was inspired by the yummy gingerbread and I just happened to have a dsp with the directions for making them printed on it.
The little man was cut from Tis the Season out of kraft cardstock and inked around the edges. They do get darker there when baked, you know. I used white Enamel Accents for the frosting and Stickles for his buttons. A tag from MCS, stamped with a PTI sentiment, is tied on with twine. So simple.
Now for the bad news. I had a card made for Merry Monday but didn't look closely enough at my challenge list (AGAIN) and missed the deadline. I think I need to start posting all my cards on one day and then I won't have to worry about it. I'm going to show it to you anyway because I rather like it.
Every year I make Christmas ornaments for my grandchildren. Three years ago I made ones like these, that I kept for myself, and used them as my inspiration.
I didn't need a sentiment because it was printed all over the paper. I roughed up the edges of the star and stamped stitches with Antique Linen Distress Ink. The button is from Button Boutique sewn with gold thread. Add some greens from a MS punch and a gold bow and it is done. Too bad it didn't make the challenge.
I'm so glad you stopped by. I hope your week gets off to a great start.
