May Your Holidays Be Sweet

Hello, everyone!  Happy December!  I finally got a bit of crafty mojo going, but I have been reluctant to post my card until I get caught up with my blog visiting/commenting.  That is going to take me a while, so I decided to go for it and hopefully my followers will understand.

One of my favourite images at this time of year is always a gingerbread man.  This cutie is Bugaboo Stamps Bobblehead Gingerbread, and I coloured him with markers, fussy-cut so I could pop him up on foam tape, and added a tiny die-cut bow with red gem. The sentiment is from Cardz TV Gingerbread Christmas, stamped on a kraft panel that I embossed with a candy design (Cuttlebug Christmas Set).  Dies used include Gina Marie Designs Decorative Ribbon Border and AlinaCraft Sweet Shadow (I didn't use the shadow).  Red glitter cardstock and patterned paper are scraps/snippets, as is the red and white cardstock used for the die-cuts.  

My card design was inspired by Sketch Saturday Week 638:


Here's an angled photo showing more of the sparkle:

So cute Kitty. Sorry I haven't been about, I was away at my son's for a week. First time I have seen him because of Covid. There was a few tears shed.
