Yet another nice day again yesterday but the weather men say that that might be it for a while. I hope they’re wrong! LOL! Brian came by yesterday to help me with a big project that I’m working on. I’ll tell you more about it next week! We ran over to Monty’s to grab some pizza for lunch. I spoke to Michael for a bit when we got back and after Brian left I worked on some projects and then went next door and played with Daniel. We had dinner and then back to working on some projects before enjoying my one TV show, Limitless. Let’s hope that this one stays on!
Today I have my card for this week’s Paper Players challenge…
It took me a while to see past the traffic light colors and come up with Christmas! The base for the card is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock that is cut to 4 1/2″ and the front is covered in a piece of Cucumber Crush that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Squares. A piece of Real Red is cut out with the Small Stitched Squares and adhered to the card with Fun Foam and SNAIL to serve as my background. To create my little “scene” I cut out some Silver Foil Sheet with the Lawn Fawn Large Stitched Ovals. The gingerbread men are from the Lawn Fawn Oh Snap Photopolymer Stamp Set, the rest of the images are form the Lawn Fawn Love You A Latte Photopolymer Stamp Set. I colored them all in with Copics and then used the Coordinating Lawn Cuts to cut them out. All of them are adhered to the “tray” with SNAIL except the mug, I used Foam Tape for that. For the greeting I cut out some Solar White 80lb with the merry christmas from the Simon Says Stamp Deco Trees Craft Dies and adhered it to the card with Multi-Matte Medium. My tray is adhered with SNAIL. For little added interest I put some Glossy Accents on the candy canes and coffee in the mug and some Black Glaze Pen over the eyes and mouth on the gingerbread men. Some Enamel Dots from Recollections around the greeting complete the card! I think that Santa will be happy to see that got two of each treat don’t you?! I hope that you enjoyed my card for this week’s Paper Players color challenge! Thank you very much for coming by today! I wish you a wonderful Wednesday! 🙂

Love the crispness of this card. The colors are perfect. Nice set, very cozy warm and nostalgic.
Thank you Nancy! Who doesn’t like some gingerbread men and cocoa?! 🙂
Good Morning Justin:
Love, love, love this card. The glossy accents really brings out some nice detail on the gingerbread people and makes the candy canes look good enough to eat. The detail of the tray filled with “goodies” is fabulous. The card is colorful, cheerful, original and welcoming. Can you tell I love it?
I won’t be on the computer after today so will play catch up when I get back here on the 26th or 27th. Not sure yet which day. Anyway, I’m really looking forward to “getting out of Dodge” for a while as once the snow starts I’m here until the snow melts and who knows when that will happen! (I apologize right now for mentioning the “S” word). Luv ya! XO 🙂
Thank you very much! Yes, the glossy accents was a last minute decision but I love the look too!
You will be missed here but I will see you on Saturday!! YAY! It’s way too early to mention the “S” word! LOL! Safe travels! Love you too! XOXO 🙂
awe….. Love Gingerbread men, LOl I’ve made several cards similiar and I’ve always snipped a leg off or arm,, I’m so mean.
Thanks Linda! The set has one gingerbread man with his leg already snipped off! LOL! I didn’t use him because I thought it was mean! 🙂
I always love your cards, Justin! So crisp and clean! The gingerbread men are SO fun. Thanks for playing along at The Paper Players!
