Christmas Card Series | Card #1 | Lawn Fawn Gingerbread Friends

Hello everyone! Welcome to my first Christmas card series. Every year I make Christmas cards for family and a few friends but this year I'm hoping to send out a lot more, better start making them!

Watch the video here.

I used the Lawn Fawn Gingerbread Friends dies to create the 2 characters on this card. Which I had die cut from Neenah Desert Storm cardstock then used Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink to darken them up. I also had followed the direction from the Lawn Fawn youtube video I watched (video link here) which gave me the tip to cut the faces for the gingerbread people on the back side.

For the frame of this card I used two rectangle dies, one a bit smaller then the other so that they would cut a decorative frame. I also used about a 1/3 of the scrap piece that was cut from the middle to layer inside the frame to make it have more of a Polaroid shape. I layered all of that over the top of an older 6X6 Christmas pattern paper with awesome red and white diagonal stripes which is adhered to a  Neenah 110lb solar white cardstock top fold card base.

I got out my stamp platform and my go to embossing supplies and quickly white heat embossed 3 parts of a sentiment to 3 different colors of cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. Then trimmed and cut those down with my Tonic cutter and scissors so that they were just color block sentiment strips and adhered those in the lower portion of my made Polaroid frame.

After that I added some glossy accents and stickles to the gingerbread people and called it done!
