Hello, friends! Welcome to my blog today! I am here to share with you what I made for the current CCAYR challenge to use Gingerbread:
I had printed out this cutie patootie Bugaboo image (which I can't find in the store ATM) when I created a bunch of digi stamp sheets for some projects. This little ginger girl is adorable! I knew that I wanted to use my 12x12 Mrs.Claus's Kitchen DCWV paper pad with this image, and when I leafed through it, I discovered this page full of recipe cards, one of which was this one. PERFECT!! I matted it on a brown cardstock from my stash, and then tried to figure out what size card to put it on. The standard 4.25 x 5.5 was too small, so I tried my other go-to size, 5.5 x 5.5. Still too small. So I dug out a business envelope, measured it, and made a card to fit. I used the same brown cardstock to cover the card front, and inked the edges with Vintage Photo distress ink. It kinda reminds me of the edges of a baked gingerbread cookie! I decided that the edge of the image circle needed some color as well, so it got the same treatment.
The card looked a bit plain, so I added some white dash lines around the edges, using my ruler to keep them straight. I adhered the image to the recipe, and then popped up the whole thing with fun foam, at a small angle. Ginger girl's cheeks also got some white dots.
