Ginger Joy Card

     Holiday Greetings stampers! Today I'm spreading some cheer, with this adorable gingerbread man made with the Ginger Joy Cling Mounted Stamp from Red Rubber Designs!

     I embossed my image in black onto Cork Paper, which gave this gingerbread man the perfect texture! Then I colored the cork with some sprays and a paintbrush, using white paint for the icing. I embossed him again onto white cardstock using red embossing powder, and colored his cheeks and bow with sprays. After fussy cutting, I glued the pieces onto the cork, and dotted his eyes with black puffy paint. 

     The tag was cut from a matte silver to mimic a cookie sheet, with embossed lines along the edges, made by scoring the back. Then I embossed my image again onto the tag, to show the crumbs along the edges. The sentiment was done in white using the Contemporary Greetings Unmounted Stamp Set, with some rick-rack over it. Finally, I finished it up with a punched hole and some ribbon. 

     I love the background, stamped in red ink with the Gingham Background Unmounted Stamp! The sheer ribbon allows the pattern to show. Behind that, I punched the top and bottom edges of some brown cardstock from the DCWV Jewel Colored 8 X 8 Cardstock Stack, which was the perfect match for my gingerbread man!  

     I made multiples of this card, just changing some of the ribbons on the tag. Happy Holidays!
