Sweet Treat Gingerbread

I just happened to glance at the latest challenge at '52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown' and wanted to play along. It's a Theme Challenge this week, and the theme is "Holiday Goodies / Treats".  I pulled out the Tim Holtz Gingerbread Man die for my card this week:

I think I will put this aside for my Mom, as she will want 2 Christmas cards for the Great Grandkids.  I used a Sizzix scalloped card die for the card base, and added a white strip of holly embossed card stock. Instead of buttons I used a 1/2" circle punch and glitter glue. Much more mail friendly. The face stamp is by Peachy Keen.

The patterned card stock was in my stash ... and it is embossed & shiny. Finished size is 4.5 x 6".

I added a couple of panels inside and a sparkly punched circle to finish it off. Another Christmas card for my stash!

Thanks for stopping by today.


  1. Karen, this is just SO adorably SWEET! The recipient will be so delighted to receive it.
    The glittered punched circles are the perfect finishing touches! SO sweet!
