Well now that it is November, I am starting think about Christmas cards. Although, this will most likely be a Christmas "thank you" card. I used a lot of NEW things today. Well, new to me! I started with a kraft base which I have never done before! I really wanted to use my new Peachy Keen Stamps, so I decided on this cute little gingerbread man from the Stretch Your Imagination cartridge. He is cut at 3 1/2 inches and the face I used was the 3/4 inch from Everyday Character assortment. Then I used my white gel pen for the first time to color in the whites of the eyes. I don't think I did a very good job with that, but it was my first time! I had a hard time getting the gel pen to work right at first. I also did some faux stitching for the first time! I think that looks better since by that time I had scribbled all over a blank sheet of paper. I used my Stampin' UP Rose Red marker to color in the mouth. His buttons are from the Making Memories Paperie Mocha collection. The pp is from the Basic Grey Figgy Pudding collection. I embossed the red sheet with a cuttlebug folder and punched the green sheet with my SU scallop border punch. I also used versamark to stamp the sentiment from Delightful Decorations with some Martha Stewart gold embossing powder and LOVE how it came out! The ribbon is American Crafts. I added an odd angle shot to show the dimension. I really need to figure out a good photo spot in my house! Thanks for stopping by!
