Several days ago, I posted a Christmas card with a baking sheet full of gingerbread cookies. I had mentioned on that post to look forward to other "cookie card" posts, as I had coloured up a few types of gingerbread and sugar cookie images.
Rather than clean off my desk and carefully file away the "extras", I decided to bake up a few more.
Here is a card duet using up the last of the gingerbread men. I made up two sets of matching cards and tags! It was a lot of fun and I tried to use snippets wherever possible.
The background DP is leftover 12x12 Doodlebug Designs, Jolly Gingerbread and Sugarplum. I have used both the A and the B sides.
The stamp is my from Marks Finest Papers...sadly they are no longer trading. This stamp set contains three cookie shapes as well as this lovely tag stamp. I stamped and fussy cut the tags on some snippets of pink card. The round mats and edging on the borders is aqua glitter paper and the American Crafts hot pink Merry Christma rub on sentiment is my NBUS item!
A punched Martha Stewart kraft snowflake, a single aqua diamond, and some fine jute twine for the bow, are the only embellishments on the first card.
A couple of white Impression Obsession snowflakes, an aqua diamond, and the same jute twine, finish off the second card.
The inside of each card is covered with the same DP that was used on the border band on each. A white die cut was used for the sentiment.
The present tags are that same Marks Finest Papers tag stamp. Luckily that it had a To: and From: stamp included.
The envelopes are such a great colour match and were tucked away in my stash. I stamped a gingerbread man on the front of each one.
