A Krafty Christmas at Sparkles Christmas

It's my urn to choose the monthly challenge at Sparkles Christmas and this month I've chosen A Krafty Christmas so we would like to see some kraft somewhere on your card.


For my card I've used a Stampin Up punch  to cut three gingerbread men from kraft card. The punch comes with matching stamps, but I wanted a more "homespun" look so instead of stamping the little fellows, I used a white gel pen to add their features and give them a faux stitched outline. I added faux stitching to the background and the mat for the sentiment, too. The candy canes for the background and the sentiment are both old magazine freebie stamps.
