Well sadly this is very probably the last Christmas card I'll get to make this year, I really enjoyed making this little 5"x5" card using Amanda's Gingerbread men digi (available free with this months news letter) and one of the papers from her lovely GINGERBREAD PAPER PACK.

After overlaying the gingerbread men on the backing paper I printed out the whole card and cut away most of the card from behind of the gingerbread men, I then cut the bottom of the card with decorative edged scissors and overlayed it onto a strip of bright red Mirri card.

Inside the card I added a strip of bright green paper and edged it with gold peel offs so that it backed the gingermen.

The "Merry Christmas" sentiment was made using an art package, I cut it out and added it tot the card using foam pads then went over the letters, eyes and buttons with clear Sukura to make them glossy!

I hope you like it.

Merry Christmas everyone!
