Gingerbread Card


it's Anja here with my new card. I made a simple one this week, because I was away from home and

didn't have all my crafting materials with me. I combined two cute gingerbread men from two different sets. I love how Cottage Cutz sets complement each other so well. 

The materials I used for this card:
- Distress Oxides (Vintage Photo, Fossilized Amber, Fired Brick, Walnut Stain, Lucky Clover),
- craft card base (15x15 cm)
- white and craft card stock for die cuts,
- white (14x14 cm) and patterned (13x13 cm) paper for background,
- craft (14x6 cm) and patterned (14x5 cm) paper stips for background,
- paper glue.

First I die cut gingerbreads from craft card stock. I cut five bigger ones and four smaller ones. I colored them with Distress Oxides. I cut the smaller pieces from white card stock.Then I glued all the cut gingerbreads together to get a 3d effect.

I used the small holly branch leaves that were left from cutting the smaller gingerbread.

Then I cut all the other paper pieces for the background.

And then I just put everything together to get the final result. 

Gingerbread men could be easily used as little magnets for the fridge. They look quite realistic when you make them in layers. And they ares so easy to make.

Thank you for visiting the blog today. Make sure you check the new video from Janet. She is showcasing all the beautiful dies from our Black Friday release. It is the cutest "get well" set of dies
I've ever seen. It will be in the store soon, so stay tuned :)

Have fun and enjoy your Sunday. 
See you next week.
