Have you checked out the fun event over at Beccy's Place? Beccy is having A Month of Holiday Cards, with inspiration every single day! I was inspired by Day 3 - Digital Images, Day 9 - Create a Scene, and Day 12 - Kraft Cardstock, Beccy is giving away lots of free digis for linking up your cards and even for commenting. Thank you, Beccy!
I decided to use Beccy's Gingerbread Set that I won at her event last year. I love the Gingerbread House and all the adorable cookies! I went with the precoloured images since my urge to colour has vanished. I enjoy fussy-cutting, so I cut all the images and even the words!
For the card, I began with a kraft card base and heat-embossed a snowy sky with Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow stencil, Versamark, and white embossing powder. I die-cut the snowy hills with Poppystamps Stitched Landscapes and added Elizabeth Craft Warm Diamond glitter along the snow. I affixed the house, gingerbread man, and words with foam tape, and adhered the other cookies directly onto the card. Lastly I added twine tied in a triple-looped bow (American Crafts).
My tag was inspired by Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags, specifically Laurel Beard's tag on Day 10. I liked the gingerbread theme and the kraft tag base.
The tag was made with MFT Stitched Traditional Tag Stax but I trimmed off the bottom using partial die-cutting to make the tag smaller. I added a punched hole and tied some DL.ART Vintage Vinyard Crinkle Ribbon (thank you, Diana!).
