Cheery Lynn Gingerbread Christmas

 Hello! I'm sharing a Christmas card in July today for Cheery Lynn Designs!  It's 90 degrees in NY today but I wanted to play with this adorable Gingerbread Family  die.

The card base is a green A2 card.  I cut a piece of patterned card stock slightly smaller to layer on top. Then I cut three gingerbread men out of a creamy gray paper. I glued white card stock to the backs so the eyes and buttons would look like they were made with white icing.  A little distress ink was sponged around the edges and I added red pearls for buttons and the center of the bow.

The circle was cut with the new Circle Stitch & Cut Tool.  Merry Christmas is a Crafty Ann die, I just love this vintage font. Cheery Lynn is now carrying all the Crafty Ann dies.  You can see them all HERE.  Last I added the snowflake from the Snowflake Set 2 and glued a sparkly silver embellishment to the center.

Thanks for visting and make sure you link up a card to join in this week's Anything Goes Challenge!  Hugs, Jenny
