HYCCT1407 A Spoonful of Sugar :-)

Hi Stampers!

Here is another card for the Splitcoaststampers Hope You CanCling To Challenge (HYCCT) to promote Breast Cancer Awareness and create cards to encourage those with cancer and their families. 

This card was created for Scraperwannabe aka Misti’s HYCCT1407 “A Spoonful of Sugar” Challenge- (see the gallery here and the details here) along with the Nacho Average Challenges NAC113 Sketch. 
Again, I hope you will find the time to check out the links above and if you can, come play along!

To create this card:

Ink the gingerbread man image from the retired set, Scentsational Seasons using Baked Brown Sugar and stamp onto the lower right hand corner of a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.

Use the Big Shot™ with the Holiday Collection Framelits™ to cut out the gingerbread man.  Use the Medium Cherry Cobbler Stampin’ Blendabilities™ marker to color the eyes and trim on the gingerbread image and the Baked Brown Sugar Stampin’ Write marker to darken the gingerbread (I had to do this step since the ink was not fully covered on the image- oops! :-))

Ink the gingerbread man image again using Baked Brown Sugar and stamp repeatedly (re-inking before stamping each time) down the left hand side of the same piece of Very Vanilla cardstock and trim the panel to 4” x 5 ¼”.

Mount the panel onto a piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock, trim and mount onto the Very Vanilla card base.

Create the tag using the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch and a 2” piece of Baked Brown Sugar cardstock. 

Add a piece of retired Vintage Crochet Trim to the bottom of the tag and cover the top edge of the trim with a scrap piece of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.

Create the paper bow using Cherry Cobbler cardstock (use the Large Oval Punch and the Hexagon Punch to create the bow), add a Very Vanilla Neutral Collection button to the center and add the bow to the top of the tag.

Add the tag to the card front and mount the gingerbread image using Stampin’ Dimensionals® (no one will be the wiser that you cut out the first gingerbread image but you :-)).

Stamp the sentiment from the retired set, Holiday Wishes using Cherry Cobbler Classic Ink to finish off the card.

Stamp Sets: Scentsational Season, Holiday Wishes (both retired)

Ink:  Baked Brown Sugar, Cherry Cobbler, Stampin’ Blendabilities™- Medium Cherry Cobbler marker

Paper: Very Vanilla, Baked Brown Sugar

Accessories: Big Shot™,  Holiday Collection Framelits™ (retired), Punches- Large Oval, Hexagon; retired Vintage Crochet Trim, Very Vanilla button

Thanks again for stopping by- I will share a few more of the challenges throughout the evening :-)
