MCT 12 Days of Christmas - Day 7


Welcome to the My Creative Time "12 Days of Christmas"!  Can you believe we're more than half way through?  There are so many new projects from Emma and my teammates that I want to try!  If you arrived here from Jeanne,  then you are headed in the right direction.  If not, please start at Emma's blog here.


To make my cute gingerbread girl, I took a real dial size 10.73" gingerbread man from the Cricut Just Because Cards cartridge (this same cut is on From My Kitchen) and welded an 8.5" dress from Everyday Paper Dolls.  Note that these are relative sizes, not actual. I then copied this, flipped the copy, and welded the two together at the head.  I cut this in cream cardstock.  Since I did not want the head to be flat at the top, I cut the gingerbread man again in kraft cardstock, with the layers in red, and adhered it to the front of the card.  I also cut the dress in patterned paper.



To dress up the little girl, I gave her a Peachy Keen face and cut her a 5.36" headband from Everyday Paper Dolls.  To this I added three flowers cut at 1.5" from Flower Shoppe.


Lastly, I die cut Emma's Stitched Heart Die and stamped it with a sentiment from her "Mixed Holiday Sentiments" Stamp Set.

Recipe:

The Paper Company Kraft Cardstock
Echo Park "Seasons Greetings" Patterned Paper
My Creative Time "Stitched Heart Die"
My Creative Time "Mixed Holiday Sentiments" Stamp Set
Peachy Keen PK-451 "Wide Eyed Kids" Stamped Set
Papertrey Ink New Leaf Ink
Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink
Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen
Inkadinkado Blending Chalks
Copic Markers
