Gingerbread and Sugared Things...

Happy Friday!!!!

I took today off from work to allow for some time to prep before tomorrow's big Cozy Homes for Christmas tradeshow and so here I'm busy pricing, packaging and setting up my mock table to see what I like. As this is my first ever tradeshow with my cards, my tummy is filled to the brim with butterflies..but I'm excited to get this going and see how I do!! So, wish me luck for tomorrow..I'm going to need it :)

My card today is one that I will be selling tomorrow, a super easy little gingerbread man from PTI and a sentiment from SU!

I made my base out of kraft cs, inked the edges with PTI's tea dyes, and then cut a small strip of some old KaiserCraft DP that I love to pieces :) I cut a strip of Pure Poppy CS and used my scalloped edge border punch to add a little interest to the card front and then tied my favorite ribbon, red gingham around it :)

I used PTI's Dark Chocolate ink to stamp out Mr. Gingerbread man here and then cut him out carefully, free hand. You can't really tell in these pictures but I used Star Dust Stickles on all his squiggly lines..just like a cookie!! Then, I used a Pure Poppy and Ripe Avocado Vintage button from PTI to coordinate with the DP
Then to finish off my card I stamped this sentiment from SU! into Dark Chocolate ink and used my Labels 1 Nesties to cut it out along with the Dark Chocolate matting. I wanted to give this card a little more of a homespun look so I went in afterwards with a white & brown inked pen and drew in some stitching lines..which I think just finished off the card perfectly!!
That's it for me today..have a great Friday and a great weekend everyone!!
