25 Days of Christmas - Gingerbread


Welcome to Erica's Craft Room
25 Days of Christmas,
with 25 Cricut projects a day.
Don't forget to stop by Erica's blog to see 24 more projects today....
and every day in December.

I made a sweet little gingerbread card to share with you today. He's very easy to make and looks so yummy.
I used the shadow of the gingerbread man found on page 61 of the Winter Frolic Cricut cartridge. I cut him out at 5" on both white cardstock and a textured light brown card.

To make my card look more like a real cookie I sponged on brown chalk ink. My little guys face is Peachy Keen Stamps wide eyed kids 1 1/8". To give him some rosey cheeks I used Inkadinkado blending chalks. His wavy icing bands are rik-rac ribbon with glossy accents. I used my Recollections opaque pen to drawn the white frosting line around him and his buttons are Bo Bunny Blitzen jewels.
Since I don't have a gypsy to weld a card together I scored my white gingerbread layer near the top, applied a line of glue and adhered the two layers together. I also inked the white layer with brown chalk ink. The sentiment is from the Inkadinkado Pattern Play Holiday stamp set and is stamped in Recollections ruby ink.
