Gingerbread and Candy Canes

Inspired by Merry Monday challenge #291. The challenge was add candy canes, cookies, and/or sweets to your cards! I did not enter these cards but the switching things around ideas kept coming after I made the first one.

Let me know which you like best, which one second, which leaves third place for the other…

Gingerbread and Candy Canes

For the backgrounds on the right and left I stamped those using Hero Arts stamp Cling Dots (CG139). The middle card background is from a paper pad.

The frame die cut is Simon Says Stamp Holiday Frames (SSSD111393). As you can probably see I backed the word Christmas with red paper on two cards. On the third I glued the cut out letters back into the frame.

The gingerbread man is from the set Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Christmas Blueprint 3. I stamped with Versamark and used white embossing powder and heat embossed. Two guys I left as it stamps and one guy I cut out.

The candy canes are from the same Tim Holtz set. One I stamped with Hero Arts Royal Red ink and cut it out. The other two I heat embossed with white powder and cut them out.
