I just LOVE gingerbread men! I have a bunch I set out for Christmas every year, just ones I have picked up here and there at flea markets and garage sales, just ones that caught my fancy, not really worth much but I love them! So I had to color these up for my card tonight! I colored and then popped up the man one, just to give it a bit more dimension. I think this will be an awesome card for a couples first Christmas together, and I happen to know a older couple that this will be perfect for, found love late in life but they are just perfect for each other and will love this card!
Next up we have a new set by Nina Brackett called, Vintage Borders and OH my! what a fun one this one is! Even though I am only showing one card tonight, I was at first kinda stumped on this set, then the ideas starting flowing! I got plenty to show at the party Thursday too! Anyways, here is a CAS card for tonight:
Isnt this a fun looking card? I just love how this turned out myself, lol! The border of the ornaments up top was stamped in Vivid Brick ink, then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. Then I used a white gel pen to highlight a few of the ornaments in spots. That big ole bow was made by some ribbon I had, did a running stitch and gathered it to make a 3-D flower, which the challenge on the JUGS blog inspired me for that one!
