Mmmm! Gingerbread

Good Merry Monday morning!

Our fun lovin' Lori chose the challenge this week.

I used my favorite Gingerbread Man from Rubber Cottage
and stamped him with Whisper White Craft ink on
Baked Brown Sugar cardstock,
then heat embossed.

I quickly colored the buttons and tie with Bendabilities
and his eyes with a Sharpie.

He didn't look quite right so I added some "cracks" with
my Memory Box Scraped Paint Stencil.
(Love this stencil.)

After fussy cutting him out, I plopped him
on a piece of  embossed Whisper White.

I adhered the little guy to another piece of  brown cardstock
and cut around that to give him some extra thickness.

I've stamped, heat embossed, stenciled, colored with markers and dry embossed.

I hope you'll join us at 
and be sure to check out all the awesome cards the Design Team has done.

I'm so glad you dropped by!

Adorable and perfect for the sweet theme ! He looks wonderful on the dry embossed background !

Pat said...

I love that great embossed background Bonnie and the sentiment is so apt as your gingerbread man is certainly sweet and pretty too. Sorry I haven't visited recently, life has been rather hectic lately but have been looking back at your wonderful cards and there is so much fantastic inspiration. I love your array of ef's and the holly one which is so pretty and your punched holly as well as your gorgeous PB die cut holly which I covet but unfortunately doesn't seem to be available any longer. x
