This week’s at Stuck on U Sketches our theme is Holiday Baking. I have more than a few grinches on my card list this year so I thought it would be fun to create a few snarky holiday cards.
This is a standard 4″x9.25″ card. I kept the design fairly simple because I wanted to showcase my papers without overwhelming the simple gingerbread man cut. I used my Fiskars Threading Water border punch for added interest.
The little gingerbread man is cut from the Jolly Holidays cartridge at 3.75″ and trimmed with white glitter paper and red rhinestones. Originally, I used my gypsy to hide the gingerbread man’s face and used a stamp to give him a sad face but then I worried that he looked a little too sad. I hand altered the cut in order to make him look bitten. The font is cut from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge at .75″.
The inside of the card is finished off with coordinating cardstock and designer paper.
