Hi, everyone! Welcome to a Cards in Envy Monday!
"Sweet" is the operative word for this challenge. Seems like a theme with lots and lots of possible interpretations. A card featuring holiday sweets... A romantic card for a special sweetie... A sweetly themed birthday card...
When I saw this little punch in the Stampin' Up! holiday catalog, I thought it would make perfect "sweet" birthday cards in addition to gingerbread holiday cards.
I'm thinking retired me should start a "Making Do with..." blog feature... LOL In spite of not purchasing the coordinating SU stamp set, I think I came up with some pretty cute little ginger gals. Face features, bows, and hearts were stamped with Lawn Fawn's Booyah set, and the pearl necklaces were stamped by with a Paper Smooches' Holly Jolly stamp.
Because this is a CIE card, my ginger gals are just two layers of paper and not popped up. Because of I used multi-layers of paper for my panel, I didn't want to add extra bulk.
We hope that you'll join us for this sweet challenge. CIE cards should be flat enough to fit into a standard envelope and light enough to be mailed without additional postage.
See you over at Cards in Envy. :)
