The Gingerbread Man

Next up from me is a very simple Christmas card using the SU Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp and punch set. This would be a good one to mass produce, and you could ring the changes by using different characters from the set.


The background is a piece of festive patterned vellum that was part of a magazine freebie kit, pierced around the edge to form a frame, with the sentiment stamped using Stazon ink. I used a ruler and piercing tool to do the piercing - I had considered cheating and using the perforation blade of my paper trimmer. I've never used the perforation blade before, and to my surprise when I came to try it I found that they have accidentally given me a spare cutting blade instead. I'm not complaining, the cutting blade is the one that gets used most!

I am sharing this with

That gingerbread man is adorable. The vellum reminds me of wax paper / parchment paper. The piercing frames him beautifully. Thank you so much for joining us this week at Less is More. 😊 Trina

What a lovely clean and simple card you've created, Jane. I love the Cookie-Cutter Christmas bundle and all its possibilities. The gingerbread man is perfect against that patterned vellum, especially with the pierced frame around the border. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
