|Cookie Cutter Christmas - Santa!!!|
So, I started these two cards with some Simon Says Stamp card stock that I cut down to a A2 top folding and A2 side folding card. I then stamped all of the little characters onto some white card stock with either Memento tuxedo black (for the ones that I wanted to color in) or a variety of Avery Elle Kraft, Avery Elle Tuffle, Stampin' Up Creamy Caramel and Stampin' Up Chocolate Chip inks. I wanted to have a little bit of a color difference for my gingerbread guys/girls! I then colored in the other images with my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers in DR1, DR2, FL3, CG1, CG2, CG3, FS1, IG1, TB1, CR2 and the Blender.
For the Santa card I used some patterned paper from Pink Paisley in Yuletide. I cut about an inch off of the side of the front of the card and glued the three little Santa's in a row. I added the patterned paper to the inside of the card in a one inch strip and then added a white stripe sticker from the Love from Lizi kit. I then used the Tim Holtz clear ink and the Hero Arts white embossing powder to heat emboss the sentiment. I also added some wink of Stella to the fur on all of the Santa's costumes. Finally, I added some sequins to the card from the Snowflake mix from Pretty Pink Posh that I had in my stash to give it that final punch. Love it!!!!

For the Gingerbread card, I took three gingerbread in differing shades of brown (mentioned above) and then cut the kraft cardstock in half - actually I cut out about 1/3 of the card stock so there could be an opening. I used the same white rope stripe stickers from the Love from Lizi card kit to accent those two pieces and then I used the three gingerbread to hold the card together. I added a bow to the hair of one and the neck of another for a little punch and used glitter stickles to make them sparkle! Finally, I used some sequins from the Reindeer sequing mix from Kat's Scrappiness. I just love how this turned out as well.
