I Believe..... In Christmas!

Hi everyone , I just wanted to post a fun challenge Mothers and Daughters Creations is having this week. I didn't think I'd have time to do it, but I managed to squeeze this card out this weekend. The challenge was to use dark green, light green and red to create a card and bonus points if we could add a gingerbread man into the mix! Well I didn't have any gingerbread embellies, paper or stamps, so I made my own one out of one of the pages of a Maya Road girl album.

Supply list:
Chipboard - Maya Road (girl or boy album and tree) and Scenic Route (I believe and bracket)
Patterned paper - Chatterbox Inc. and Junkitz
Cardstock - Bazzill
Buttons - Autumn Leaves
Felt - American Crafts
Ribbon - Rusty Pickle
Other - Stickles paint, brown fluid chalk, beads, paint and glitter.

To recreate, simply rub the fluid chalk over the head, hands and feet of the chipboard figure, then use some "Stickles" paint to create the look of frosting.

Dress the figure with a strip of red patterned paper, a strip of scalloped paper and a thicker strip of pleated patterned paper.

Embellish with felt, ribbon, beads chipboard and buttons.
