Frosted Gingerbread

It doesn't feel like Thursday but it is!  The Create with Connie & Mary Challenge is this  fun sketch.   I love this sketch.  Why?  It has a great focal point and those 3 strips are a great place to use DSP or something sparkly .  My card came together quickly and easily following the sketch.  



I knew I wanted to use some of the products from the Gingerbread & Peppermint Suite.  The only hard choice I had to make was whether to feature the ornament, bell, star, or snowflake.  I chose the snowflake and instead of stamping I used the Gingerbread dies and cut the snowflakes out from the super cute Gingerbread & Peppermint DSP.

Here's what I used:

Basic White Thick Cardstock  base: 4-1/4" x 11" scored at 5-1/2", sentiment (Stitched Rectangle  1/2" x  2-1/2") scrap piece

Real Red CS: 4" x 5-1/4"

Kraft paper: Cut with the Stitched Rectangle die ( 2-5/8" x 4") embossed Wintry 3D embossing folder

Gingerbread & Peppermint DSP:  1 sheet to cut out 3 snowflakes, 1/2" x 4-1/4" strip for inside of the card, small snowflake fussy cut

Be Dazzling 6" x 6" Specialty Paper- 1/2" x 4-1/4" (cut 3)

Wonderful Gems: 6 red gems


Inside a strip of DSP and a small snowflake from the Gingerbread & Peppermint DSP.  I think the inside of the card needs to be decorated too.  

Be sure to check out what the rest of the Create with Connie & Mary design team created using the sketch.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to check out the Gingerbread & Peppermint Suite!
