My Goodness... It's a Card

Hello Hello Hello!

I have a card! I know! Shock Horror!
Someone from work asked me to make a couple of birthday cards (They will be showcased later) but whilst doing those cards I got a bit of inspiration and made a couple of Christmas Cards!!

This is one of them :)

I was blog hopping looking for inspiration and then started looking at some of my favourite stores and came accross some digital goodies from Hero Arts!

This card has bits and pieces from lots of different places!
I started by using this kit from 2Peas and took the background, which you can't see in the picture above... maybe this one will help!

It's quite a subtle colour, I changed the red and the transparency so it didn't come through too strong!

I then found these cute Gingerbread men as part of another Hero Arts digital set!

I printed 4 and then varnished them! I have some glossy accents on order too mwahahahha!

Once the ginger's had dried I then Used some bakers twine hanging randomly across the card and then stuck the little ginger's down with glue dots!

I tied some red ribbon from my stash around the top!
The lovely sentiment is taken from a fantastic set from Pink Petticoat which comes free when you purchase the beautiful papers!

I also did a little inside print too!

The Santa Claus is from the earlier set I posted and the Fa La La La La is from PinkPetticoat :)

I hope you enjoy!
It's nice to be back....
