Colour Theme Gingerbread Men

It's Saturday and that must mean it's time for another challenge over at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown. This week it's a colour theme and Mynnette has chosen these gorgeous colours for us to play with

I loved the image Mynnette had put with her colours and so I based my card around that - take a look

My card is DL size and has been decorated with stamps from the S'U sets Snow Flurries and Hung up on the Holidays. My gingerbread men have been stamped and then cut out by hand, they were then attached using 3D foam pads.

 My colours are Cream (for the card base), Real Red and Chocolate Chip. I used the Scallop Edge punch to make my border and I added some red ribbon and a bow.
Please pop over and take a look at the other dt cards they are really lovely and I hope you have the time to take part too.
Have a great weekend - see you soon - Jacqueline xx


  1. Gingerbread were certainly the first thing to come to mind when I saw the challenge colours! Love the red ribbon with the gingerbread men.

  2. I just adore all your amazing tall cards--I tried to make one this week but yours is taller! ;) LOVE your gingerbread men--and just the hint of red is fabulous, Jacqueline! :)

  3. Oh my goodness Jacqueline - you are so very patient to cute out those little gingerbread fellas! But it was so totally worth it as it has a great effect and I love the Long tall layout!

  4. Oh I love your smiley gingerbread man Jacqueline! These are fabulous colours. Vicky x

  5. A trio of yummy smiling gingerbread men - what's not to love?! Perfect layout for a DL card - I always seem to struggle with those!
