I've just counted up my Christmas cards made so far this year and it's still only 30, and I have two 2-week holidays between now and Christmas - I'm going to have to go into mass production mode!
This card was nice and quick to make though, so perhaps I will do a few more along the same lines.
I used kraft card with a snowflake die cut shape removed from the centre. Then I stamped the gingerbread man and greeting randomly over the card with Versamark ink and edged the card and aperture with distress ink. I wanted to back the aperture with red and white gingham paper, but I had none left and with packing to go away didn't have time to search through my CDs where I'm sure to have a suitable paper to print out, so I used this festive star pattern instead. Then I wrapped the whole panel with raffia and stuck it to my card front.
I stamped the gingerbread man again onto a scrap of kraft card, using brown ink this time, and also onto a scrap of red, then cut out the red heart and stuck it to his tummy, then added him to the knot of the raffia.
Finally I finished the card off with a button and some candi.
I think if I use this idea again I will die cut a heart rather then a snowflake, and if I still have no gingham paper, would use something lighter in colour - white or cream with red spots or stars would work well.
