Day 9: Gingerbread Merry Christmas | By Nancy

Hello, everyone! It's Nancy here today. I hope you're all enjoying this wonderful season! I love it! Just remember to take time to enjoy it all...and not to stress over the little things! :o)

If you've still got some cards to make then here's a good idea for you. It goes together very quickly, and a couple of elegant touches make it more special for the season. I also have a discount code for you listed below, which is a lovely bonus. I began with these wonderful Home for the Holiday papers from Maja Designs. I just had to use the gingerbread design. I paired it with these fun stamps from Gummiapan.

I stamped both the sentiment and the gingerbread man in Versamark ink, and heat embossed it in gold. Then I did some simple die-cutting and layering with the Gummiapan oval dies. These were adhered to the card base with foam tape to add some dimension. 

I added this really pretty double looped bow to the top of the oval. The pretty gold ribbon adds another special touch of elegance. (This one is from my stash but I'll link to something very similar in the store).

Finally, I added some gold pearls to the bottom corners of the card. Just the finsihing touch!

This is a design that is very easy to make multiples of in quick order. It's also an easy one to mail out, as there's not a lot of bulk to it. You can switch it up with different papers or different stamps. Have lots of fun making it your own! 

Thanks so much for stopping in today! I'll be back with another project soon!
