Snowflakes and a Gingerbread Man!

Here are a couple more Christmas cards that I made yesterday. The gingerbread man one was made for a challenge on another blog, Mothers and Daughters Creations. We had to use light green, dark green and red colors and an extra bonus if we used a gingerbread man on it. I decided to make a file folder card. I ran a piece of light green Bazzill CS through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots Emb. folder and then added some Bo Bunny paper, lace, then a piece of MME paper. I then "glittered up" one of my wooden snowflakes, added some Martha Stewart branches with my punch, then a foam snowflake and then a K&Co. poinsettia flower. The gingerbread man is foam which I purchased a whole bag of them and other things for $1 in, believe it or not, Rite Aid!! I dressed him up with a MME paper hat, snowball pom-pom, ribbon, pearls and a "Peace" CS sticker by K&Co. To finish it off, I adhered some Pom-Pom trim along the top edge and the file tab was made with some more MME paper.

The next card was made with some My Mind's Eye PP, some more crocheted lace and white lace ribbon, another wooden snowflake drenched in pink glitter, a foam snowflake, white hemp cord, and 2 buttons. I printed the "Happy Holidays" out from MS Word onto a sheet of Vellum.

Hope you like em'!
