"Oh, What Fun!"- CAS Dancing Gingerbead Men
I wanted to create another quick, easy Christmas card to start off the weekend and decided to use the Freshly Made Sketches #FMS103 Challenge along with the Pals Paper Arts PPA171 Colors.
If you have not already visited their sites, I hope you will take the time to stop by- so many examples of projects and so much inspiration!
This card is quick and easy since it has simple stamping and the die cuts do all the work- I did decided to use a retired stamp set that I have not inked up yet- so many stamps, so little time!- lol!
To create this card:
Ink the Background Builders stamp using Calypso Coral Classic Ink and stamp onto Very Vanilla cardstock. Trim and adhere to a piece of Baked Brown Sugar cardstock and add a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock (embossed using the Big Shot™ along with the Delicate Designs Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder). Round the corners using the 1 3/8” Circle Punch and adhere to a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.
Stamp the gingerbread men from the retired Scentsational Season stamp set and use the Holiday Collections Framelits™ along with the Big Shot™ to cut out the shapes.
Stamp the sentiments from Christmas Messages using Calypso Coral Classic Ink onto Very Vanilla cardstock and punch out using the XL Oval Punch. Layer the “Oh, What Fun” onto two other layers of cardstock (two XL Ovals from the same punch from Calypso Coral and Baked Brown Sugar- layer to expand the oval and peek out from the sentiment layer). Layer the “Wishing you” sentiment onto Baked Brown Sugar cardstock- add both to the main focal panel.
Emboss a piece of Baked Brown Sugar cardstock using the Big Shot™ along with the Square Lattice Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder- round the corners. Adhere to a Very Vanilla card base and add the focal image panel.
Add the gingerbread men using Stampin’ Dimensionals® and attach the ½” Very Vanilla Seam Binding ribbon bow along with the pearls to finish off the card.
