Jolly Gingerbread

It's Merry Monday on Friday again on this blog. This is week 17 and I've participated in all but the first one.  I've even done more than one some weeks.  It's a wonderful way to get cards done and beat the December rush.  And each card is unique, thanks to these wonderful sketches.

Here's Lesley's sketch for this week.

I reminds me of a card that we did for one of my Christmas Stamp-a-stacks.  I changed it up just a bit, but kept the long, narrow card.

I scored some diamonds on the white panel behind the gingerbread men.  If you look really close you might see the lines.

The card measures 6 1/4" x 3 1/4" and fits in the small open end envelopes or in a regular check size envelope.

I've also just joined in the Christmas Challenge at Spiltcoaststampers.  I took a browse through the April gallery and there are some beautiful cards there. 

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted

Card Recipe
Stamps:  Jolly Bingo Bits, To You & Yours (retired)
Ink:  Chocolate Chip, SU Markers (Real Red, Chocolate Chip)
Paper:  Real Red, Whisper White, DSP (retired)
Other:  Simply Scored, 1" Circle and Scallop Edge Punches, Scallop Circle Die (Nestabilities)

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you have a great weekend and get to do some stamping.

Oh, yummy! I could go for some gingerbread right NOW. LOL Being on a diet means I don't get cookies too often (just the kind that come in those 100 calorie packs). Yours look delish!
