Gingerbread Treats for CAS Christmas

Hello friends.

I'm back with some more holiday treats for CAS Christmas.

Our hostess, Nance has challenged us to make

I found this stamp that's a miniature of my larger gingerbread man and the 
matching dies at our stamp show during the summer.

I stamped and heat embossed with white on brown cardstock.
The die was a huge help in cutting them out and I also cut from some brown foam
to add dimension.  I like my gingerbread with some thickness!

Ummm, they are making me wish for gingerbread!

I had an extra cookie so I made another in your face red card.

Check out what our fabulous Design Team and Guest Designer, Birgit
have done to inspire you.  They'll make your mouth wish for holiday treats!

I hope you'll share your treats with us at
Challenge is open through the 24th.

Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.

Two wonderful cards with this sweet gingerbread man Bonnie. That is the most perfect rich red in the background, and the the three stitched square apertures with a little treat inside each together with the red sentiment is just great. The second is so pretty too with the base card and mat in that gorgeous red and what a wonderful contrast with the white stitched square with another of the gingerbread men over the top, and the baker's twine and little tag for the sentiment looks lovely as the finishing touch. x

Both cards are so well designed, Bonnie. Love the red card base another thing I have not done. It really makes your gingerbread pop. Love that you white embossed on kraft too- making it look even more like yummy icing.

Those miniature gingerbread men are adorable, Bonnie. They really pop against the red squares. Always a bonus to get a second card done while all the supplies are out. The single gingerbread man is so cute! xx
