Warm Wishes Gingerbread Girl

Hello, everyone!  Today I have another CAS holiday card to share, not unlike the card I posted yesterday.  In fact, I've made a set of four cards in this style so I will share them one by one.


I fell in love with the cute images over at Diddybag. This cutie came in a set of 5, regularly priced 99 cents, but I got the set on sale for 89 cents.  I enjoy pre-coloured images, especially when I have a lot of cards to make!  All I did was print, fussy-cut, and add some clear Wink of Stella over the cute gingerbread girl.  She's also popped up on foam tape. Great for a quick card!

The snowflake embossing folder is Taylored Expressions Winter Flurry, and the cute sentiment is Poppystamps - You Melt My Heart. I embellished with three pink dew drops.

As for my little elf Eli, he's had more adventures at the local post office! Here he is, all cuddled up with Santa. Eli and Santa had fun catching up and made plans for the big trip on Christmas Eve. Eli does not like to miss a chance to join DL.ART's Third Annual Elf Antics Linky! You can check out all of Eli's elf friends over at the linky!

AWK! This little gingerbread girl is so ridiculously adorable and your card is so cute and sweet! I love those little pink dew drops and the embossed background. Just look at Eli, making friends with Santa at the post office! I get the giggles imagining you taking his photo there...while the other customers stand in line and wonder what you're up to!!

These images are the cutest I've seen in a long time, and I've seen some really cute stuff! There's just something about her expression that brings out the ahhhhhs! I've never even tried digital stamps but I'll have to check this site out now. As for Eli snuggling up to Santa, I wonder what he's asked Santa for Christmas? I'll have to make sure my elf, Loopy, doesn't see this photo or she'll have even more reasons to bug me for a ride into town!

This card is so lovely.
Thanks for playing with us at Inspiration Destination.

Eli looks cute all cuddled up to Santa.
Love the touches of pink on your card (even though I'm not a pink person usually!)

Pia S said...

So, so sweet and the clean design makes it ideal for postage. My cards are often so heavy, driving postage costs up, so definitely going to make more simpler ones next year...

Tanya said...

What a sweet card, lovely image! Very festive :)
