Well hello there! Hope you all are doing well today. I am having a great day so far. Started out with a 3.3 mile walk/jog with a friend, and came home and realized that I could successfully navigate 3 challenges with one card! Dontcha just LOVE it when that happens? So, before I get much further, let me link you up. This is for this week's colourQ challenge 113 Please come play with us this week at CQC! Love these shades of BLUE! :)
It is also for Lesley's sketch challenge at The Paper Players 74.
And it is the final challenge at Jingle Belles for this year (**sniff sniff**) the challenge is to incorporate food into your card!
So, I figured by going with a gingerbread man, using the colourQ colors and using the PP sketch I would be a super-duper multitasking crafty chick today. ;)
I started out by cutting my gingerbread man. I used this same guy last year on one of my fave Christmas cards of all time! You can check it out here. So I cut him out with the Cricut, making a shadow for him in the Marina Mist color. I die cut the squarish shape for him to be layered on. I accented him with some googly eyes and these old silver button embellies I found in my stash. The supply list on this post will be short as so much of what's on this card is so old I really don't know who made it! Once that piece was all done, I set it aside. I made a regular A2 sized card base, but as I went to put it all together, I realized I needed to go bigger to fit all my elements! So this is a 6" square card.
The rectangular panel is a snowflake acetate sheet laid upon an old scrap of SU! DSP. I used a punch to make the tab and sticker letters to spell out "sweet."
The strip across the bottom is a laser cut felt ribbon, so pretty! I accented it with some blue pearls.
DUST IT OFF!: So many old goodies on this card I don't know where to begin! the buttons, the stickers, the paper, it's all old, but it's alllll GOOD! ;)
