Bug A Boo Stamps Gingerbread Girl

We have an "In The Kitchen" themed challenge starting today at Stamps R Us and Bug A Boo Stamps is our prize sponsor!

For my card I used the cute gingerbread cookie from the December Digi Club collection for my card.  She's colored with Copic markers E41, E42, E43, B21, B23, R22, R24, R27, Goooo, C00, C1.  

I tried something a little different with this Spellbinders die, I used a circle die inside the first die, left them together and embossed my frame with one of the Spellbinders impressions thingies.  It was an interesting affect, I like it.  The triangle shapes were a rectangle I cut from corner to corner with my paper trimmer after embossing with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.  The cardstock I used was Neenah Solar White and Kraft and I added some organdy ribbon and a bow. 

I have a tutorial on Wednesday on how to do the embossing inside the Spellbinders die this Wednesday using a different card. 

I have a  winner for my blog candy from the Operation Write Home Bunny Hop! picked Erica "One Crafty Mama" Congratulations Erica, I will be in contact with you soon!
