At last I have had the inspiration to use the Martha Stewart Gingerbread Men stamps I purchased at least a year ago and although the photo doesn't do the colours justice, I am inclined to think that I have found THE Christmas card design I will reproduce to send to a lot of my friends. I looove them !!
I have based my design on a sketch at Waltzing Mouse but I also hope to enter other challenges too.
Now for the details.I have used Kraft Card for the card base,the mat and the tags. I distressed/inked the edges with Rangers Distress Ink (Brushed corduroy) and stamped with Archival Ink (Coffee). I cut,frayed and machine stitched red and white cotton Gingham to the base with red embroidery thread. To complete the design I added RED stitched ribbon and RED and GREEN bead gems to the tags - contrary to the colours in the photos!
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges :
1.Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge - 22
2.Totally Papercrafts Challenge 41 - Tag it ..

4.Charisma Cardz Challenge 44 - With love @ Christmas
