Card Kits - Christmas - Gingerbread Man
These card kits were prepared for someone who runs classes in a shelter. They were designed to be put together with few tools.
This gingerbread is great. I used 12x12 cardstock. It was cut down to three 4 x 11 inches cards which puts the fold at the top. The cardstock creates the feel of a textured fabric. The gingerbread was cut in a color that matched one of the stripes in the background. The gingerbread's white icing on the arms and legs was created with a white marker. A piece of red cardstock was taped behind the hearts on his tummy. The gingerbread was glued to the card front then the black was added to the eyes and smile. The oval greeting was cut with a Cuttlebug die and the greeting was stamped with green ink. The greeting was threaded onto the ribbon. The ribbon ends are scotch taped on the inside of the card.
