Fresh Baked Gingerbread Man
I made this card for a new challenge at Sherrod Studio called the Tuesday Throwdown. This week's challenge was to use their sketch. I used a pre-printed notecard for my background (Limited Supply Challenge on Splitcoast). On my card it's very subtle, but there are two triangle vellum pieces over the background. I used the gingerbread man outline from Fresh Baked on Kraft cardstock. I love how easy it is to position the vest, face and stripes with the clear stamps. I filled in all the white areas with a gel pen. Another thing that I like about clear stamps is how you can gently curve them on the acrylic block and make a straight saying wavy. I thought it went well with the wavy frosting on his arms and the border punch. I chose grosgrain ribbon because of the striped texture it has.
Thanks for looking and have a blessed day! :)
