Sweet Christmas

G'day Everyone it is Monday and I am back to share with you this weeks project for The Shabby Tea Rooms blog.  Our brief this week was really quite simple...to create a card using red, white, gingham and gingerbread!!

And our inspiration pic was.....
Don't they look so yummy hanging there?  I know these wouldn't last very long at all in my house!


Here is my Sweet Christmas card.  I had a hard time finding the gingham paper, so I googled gingham backgrounds and up came a heap that I could print for free.
  I inserted one of these free images into a word document and then re-sized it to fit my card base.  I have done the same with subway sign.  I layered both up on some plain white card stock  to make them stand out a little more.   The cute little gingerbread man comes from this years Kaisercraft Christmas collection - Gingerbread.  I have added some red pearls for buttons and hand made his little bow tie from some fine red gingham ribbon.  I have used some extra small  black rhinestones for his eyes.  I topped off his bow tie with another of the red pearls.  My bow is made from some hand dyed seam binding and I have added a border down the side with some more of the seam binding and white lace.

That is my share this week.  I love how my card turned out and I hope you do too.  Please be sure to pop on over to The Shabby Tea Rooms and see what the other designers have created for you this week. 
Till next time remember to .....
