Gingerbread Tree

Hi Everyone, today for my Cheery Lynn Designs DT card, I am showcasing this adorable Gingerbread Family, I love how you can dress them up, aren't they so cute !

I started off by cutting out 2 Scalloped Squares in red cardstock trimming a strip off them both to form the length of rectangle required for my 8 x 6 card. My next layer I used my die cut edge strip, gluing the layers together and adding Stickles into all the small holes. I then sprinkled a little Red Tinsel Embossing Powder over my paper and heat set for a little more sparkle.

My pot for my Tree was made using a section from my die cut Sentiment Tag.I heat embossed Red Tinsel Embossing Powder on it and my word Believe.

I started layering sections of my Build a Christmas Tree onto my card to form a large tree and added Santas Sleigh.

My Gingerbread Family were coloured with Copics and Glitter Pens, highlighting the embossed details with a white pen. The girl's bows and dresses were layered twice.

The boy's hats I used Snowtec on them adding extra fine glitter whilst still wet and a few gems for buttons.

Thanks for stopping by.
