And I have the SIXTH day!

To begin, I am sharing some cards that a friend of mine asked me to create. She wanted some custom Christmas cards for her niece and nephew. She wanted me to add their names to the cards, too! Well...when I saw this new SUGAR & SPICE stamp set and matching Sweet Cuts, I knew they would be perfect for this project!








There is a little pocket on the front of the cards with a surprise tag inside!







I think these turned out so cute! Each gingerbread person was cut with kraft card stock, which I then coated with Rock Candy glitter. The icing is Liquid Applique!
I printed the kid's names on the computer and then cut them out with the Hello Friend Sweet Cut.


My next cards
 use the new
Merry & Bright stamps and matching Sweet Cuts.




I used the negative die cut with this CAS card:





And this card uses the Merry & Bright die cut!  I colored the tree with Copic Markers, and attached it to a trio of pretty papers:






I had an extra gingerbread man that I had made with Sugar & Spice Bundle. I added candy from the older Paper Sweeties stamp set called Let's Party. The candy was colored with Copic Markers.



 I think the candies are perfect for the Gingerbread Man!

I hope you had fun looking at all of my cards that I made with the  new December Paper Sweetie Releases!
This group of stamps and Sweet Cuts are PERFECT for this time of year!

I love how you used the positive and negative cuts of the tree die - two cards from one cut. I'll be using that idea. Makes it so much faster to do a quantity of cards.
the gingerbread people are darling. The kids will love these.
Fun way to present them also. The papers are so pretty.
thanks for sharing some wonderful ideas.
