Merry Gingerbread Man!


This little fellow makes me smile :)

He was very easy to put together with Stampin' Up! punches.  His body is the Owl Punch, His arms and legs are from the Modern Label Punch and his head is the 3/4" Circle Punch.  I used Soft Suede cardstock for his body.   The buttons were punched using Itty Bitty Shapes in Whisper White and the Owl Punch for the Real Red centres.  

He is mounted onto a 2 1/2" Circle of Real Red with some Lucky Limeade Organza Ribbon attached to the back to make a loop.  I've hung him from the sentiment which was cut out using Expressions Framelits.  The background is the Embossing Folder Decorative Dots.  I've mounted this onto a mat of Real Red and attached to a card base of Soft Suede.  

I used a White Gel pen to add decoration and the face to my gingerbread man and also to the card base. 

So why have I been making gingerbread men?  Well that's the challenge over at Merry Mondays


Don't these guys look so cute?
