A Tradition of Gingerbread

Does your family have any holiday traditions? Ours does, several in fact but one of our absolute favorites is gingerbread. For many years we had a gingerbread house making party. Seventeen to eighteen kids, candy from one end of the patio to the other and icing that hardened on to everything! Truly unforgettable. That's why I'm a sucker for anything gingerbread to this day. When I saw the weekly Card Patterns challenge I knew I had to use it for this design. Here's the sketch:

This card features the gingerbread man from Papertrey Ink's Holiday Button Bits.

He's a cutie isn't he? I made the cookie sheet by dry embossing two lines on the edges of a piece of silver cardstock, rounding the corners and folding it up. I stamped and embossed the gingerbread man but since that's the only stamping done this card goes together very quickly.

Hope your home smells of sweet gingerbread this season! 


  1. Brilliant! I love your cookie sheet idea - the whole card is really terrific.

    Thanks for playing along this week with Card Patterns - I'm so happy to be their sponsor this go around. :)

  2. Such a cute, bright & cheerful Christmas card! I like how you embossed the gingerbread boy then placed him on a cookie sheet! :) TFS

  3. LOVE this card! Just FAB! And the colors are super!
