Gingerbread Love

Happy Wednesday, all! I am back with a holiday card as promised! =) I am a little over half way through my holiday card making marathon now. And that's why I can't put any of them up on my Esty shop yet. I want to make sure that everyone on my list gets a card first. I always save a card for myself/ourselves, and today's card might be the one that I'll save. =)


I made this card for my post over at the Belles 'n Whistles Stamps Blog yesterday. I used the super cute Gingerbread Love for my card.


This has to be one of the sweetest images ever! I adore all the details and it's just so fun to color. I paired the image with some old holiday paper from Scenic Route.


The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. The pretty outline stamp for the sentiment label is from Waltzingmouse Stamps' Holiday Labels No. 14. I spritzed the paper doily with Tattered Angel's Walnut Gold glimmer mist to give it a little shine, but it doesn't show very well. I think I probably could have used more mist...

Oh! Just in case you want to start Black Friday shopping early, they are providing free shipping for orders over $25 at Two Peas! They have the new and yummy Modern Homemaker from October Afternoon as well as Cosmo Cricket's Circa 1934. Mmmmm... I think I'll do some of my shopping over there! =)



Have a beautiful day and hanks for stopping by!
