WMSC#74 Gingerbread fun!
Today I'm sharing a card I have made for this week's Waltzingmouse Stamps 'Sketch Challenge' WMSC#74!
Here is the fab sketch I followed for the challenge...
Trying to get my head around Christmas cards - this one is going to be for my sweet niece...
I found the main image in a folder, already coloured just waiting to be turned into a card!! These cute little Gingerbread people are from the Bountiful Basket Additions Stamp Set from Waltzingmouse Stamps. I stamped the inner part of the circle/frame using an image from Vintage Circles small set from Waltzingmouse. I used black ink on aqua polka dot paper and hand-cut around the beautiful inner lacey scalloped shape. I then layered it onto another pink scalloped frame I had cut using blossom and circle nestabilities. My frame was then popped up onto the image using foam dimensionals. I added some May Arts crochet lace trim and some white seam binding from The Ribbon Reel along with my Spellbinders Fancy Tags label, raspberry pink button and aqua gems to finish. The lovely sentiment is taken from the Teeny Trees stamp set - the happy and Christmas were stamped individually to make the sentiment you see here.
Thanks for looking - have a wonderful week.
