Vivienne Holden :: Sweet Ginger Christmas

Hi everyone, Viv here from Crafting Haven.
 I just managed a final Christmas in July card before it ends in the Peachy Keen Store!
(Loads of discounts and offers if you're quick)!!!

Here's my card.....

I die cut my adorable Gingerbread Boy (PKK-02) out of Crumb Cake CS.
Then used the coordinating Gingerbread Boy stamp (PKS-14) to stamp the whole image and then again onto some DKWV Christmas paper for paper piecing his overalls, hat band and bow. 
The white areas were coloured with a white gel pen. (Also from Peachy Keen).
The little holly motif in the corner was stamped and coloured with Copics, fussy cut and mounted onto the card with a glue dot the size of a small country!
The card was embossed with a huge Spellbinders M-Bossabilities folder EG-1002.
The triple bow was a pure fluke! I was experimenting with  my bow maker and accidentally created the bow and I have no idea how I did it! LOL
Well, I hope you enjoyed Christmas in July as much as I have 
(although most of my July was taken up with having a new bathroom fitted and all the muck and mess THAT entailed)! SO worth it though!
Don't forget to come back tomorrow for sneaky peeks at the fabulous August release!!

Happy crafting!

What a cute card. The little Gingerbread Boy is perfect with the paper piecing and white pen. Too funny about the bow. The bow makers do make a great bow and I was thinking I might need one :D
