Krafty Gingerbread Christmas


 Hello!  Today I am sharing a Christmas card that I am entering in several challenges. There are many ongoing Christmas challenges for month of July and this week.  I made my card by stamping 3 Gingerbread men with brown ink on Kraft CS that I cut out and attached to 3 Red circles and added buttons for "their" Buttons and Liquid Pearls for the Icing on eyes and mouths.  Following the sketch on the right, I used a red card base and a layer of " krafty" pattern paper. I attached the images and added some ribbon with the sentiment and a ginger bread boy and girl button.
