Hello sweet peeps! I know my blog has been buzzing this past week with all the new offerings from Power Poppy and.... today is no exception! Just two days ago, a brand new digital stamp set arrived on the scene that is going to make creating tags and little Christmas treasures so much fun!
Check out Gingerbread Family!
I absolutely adore this set because of the fact that these little gingerbread people can be shown in a front and back design! Here, you have spicy gingerbread cookies, decorated oh-so-sweetly with, like I said, a mirror image for even more creative fun! This set even comes with a cozy gingerbread house to serve as a tasty accent or even the centerpiece of your holiday card.
On to my creation!
Because of the front and back nature of this image, I thought it would be super fun to create a "peek-a-boo" kind of window card so that when you opened up the card, you saw the back side of your little dough man!
Check it out..... (you can see how I also decked out my card front using the Frosted Gingerbread clear stamp set as a background. I stamped in brown and accented with a white gel pen!)
So, to get my little gingerbread man, stepping out from the frame, I put glue dots on the top of the hat on the lower leg that would be leaning out...
From there, I colored up the backside and overlayed this image!
I should mention that when I colored him up, these were the markers (below) that I used! I have to tell you that I had a kind of blond moment. Why didn't I even THINK to print this little guy out on kraft colored paper? Never even crossed my mind! That would have been too easy! ;-)
Because I didn't want just a simple white background showing through the window of my card, I did use some green decorative paper and made sure to stamp my sentiment (also from the Frosted Gingerbread clear stamp set) below the window so that it wouldn't show! I then accented with a red sparkle pen and white gel pen -- for a little something extra!
And here's one last look at it all matted up! Add a little bow and fun two-toned button and this little guy is ready to make his grand holiday entrance!
Have a fabulous weekend and I will see you back here soon!
