Inspired by Gingerbread

Hey, everyone! Even though Christmas is almost upon us, I still found time to make one more Christmas card! I used the photo from Inspired By All The Little Things challenge-

IMG_6129.PNGI really love how the small amount of red pops off the photo. So for my card I decided to use kraft and white as the main focal point and red in the background. I love these types of challenges because everyone interprets them differently! Here’s my take!


I started by using a MFT background stamp to give my red card base a wood grain affect. I used white ink from SSS but it gave a more light pink color instead of the red. This would have been a perfect time to use a Stampoholic or the MISTI. I only have the Nano so the large stamp didn’t fit. Anyways, then I used a scalloped rectangle die from Craftin’ Desert Divas to cut some kraft colored paper. I used an image from Neat & Tangled as the focal point. I heat embossed it in white. It didn’t fill in completely so I filled in the empty spots with a white gel pen! Finally, I punched a small hole and tied some striped ribbon onto the card. Thanks for stopping by and have the merriest of Christmases!
