Gingerbread

It is time already again for the girls in the Christmas Card Club to show our makes. The theme was set by Maureen who asked us for Christmas Baking. The only thing I could find in my stash was this design paper and  a digi image called 'Gingerbread Scene' by Imagine That. It comes as a set of several different images in both pre-coloured and black/white. I chose to use the pre-coloured images and went for a Joy Fold Card design.  

 My starting point was to print off the Gingerbread house scene which then determined the size I made the card.  The design paper is by Sally Denton and came as a freebie in a magazine Cards and Papercrafts.. The two different size ribbons were oddments  from my stash. Then I just cut and layered everything up using brown and green cardstock. Here is the inside of the card opened out. I have added a pocket on the left hand side to hold a tag for writing the recipient on which in this case will be our Granddaughter.

I hope I have managed to fulfil the criteria for Christmas Baking.

Entering into the following challenges.
A Snow Flakes Promise #47 Anything goes.
The Holly and The Ivy #22 Anything goes.
Pixies Crafty Workshop #317 /318 use your snippets (in this case the ribbon)
The Paper Shelter #322 Shape It Up.
Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge #369 Anything goes + optional use a sentiment.

Hi Valery, love this! Especially the tag idea on the inside, thats awesome. Love all the colours, I'm interested in the fact some Digis come pre-coloured, colouring just isn't my thing, I'm afraid. Never comes out the way I want. Love & Hugs, Shaz XxX
