Merry Christmas-Send A Smile 4 Kids


Hello! Welcome to the November Send A Smile 4 Kids card challenge. This month we are creating happy holiday cards for kids. To create my card I started by stamping this adorable little gingerbread man from Purple Onion onto some white Copic-friendly cardstock, colored him using my alcohol markers, and fussy cut him out. I edged him with my Momento tuxedo black marker and popped him up using Stampin' UP foam dimensionals. I then cut a square out of more white cardstock and stamped the sentiment from the Avery Elle Joy To The World stamp set using Versafine onyx black ink. I die cut the square scalloped edge frame from cherry cobbler cardstock from Stampin' UP using a die from Spellbinders. To create the card I started by layering some cherry cobbler cardstock directly onto my white A2 cardbase and then started layering pretty Christmas patterned papers from Echo Park. The collection is so old I've honestly lost track of the name of it and when it was made. LOL. Yes, I'm a paper hoarder! Once I finished layering all of the panels onto the card I popped the focal panel up off of the card using 3M foam tape. To finish the card off I added some black gems from Ki to the corners and a little glitter pen to the details on the gingerbread man. So cute and so very fun!

Hi, Celeste! One of the things I love about your cards -- one of many things, I must say -- is your selection of pattern papers. You always use the perfect papers for every single occasion. And, your paper layering on this card is so well done. Too cute! I'm a paper hoarder, too, but I don't think I have quite the collection you do. LOL Take good care!

This is such an upbeat, darling card, Celeste.

Gingerbread (of all types) is a wintertime (and, let's be honest, year-round :D) favourite of mine and I melt faster than a snowman in April for anything depicting adorable little gingerbread people.

Thank you very much for sharing this delightful holiday greeting with us, lovely lady - and, wholeheartedly, for your deeply appreciated recent blog comments.

Big hugs & oodles of happy November wishes,
Autumn Zenith 🧡 Witchcrafted Life
