I made this card for a good friend whose birthday falls on the 23rd of December. Like me, she has a sweet tooth and I had no problems whatsoever deciding on a theme for her card. The season is full of sweet things and so what better excuse to use the pre-coloured gingerbread man image and patterned paper from the PickNix Gingerbread Twist CD. I've been eyeing these pre-coloured images in this CD because they look good enough to eat! As an added bonus, they really do make light work of a card, if you're short on time (or ideas!)
I did not go out of my way to ignore all things Christmassy simply because my friend is a huge fan of the season and of gingerbread men.
Here's what I've come up with:
|The image and green plaid patterned paper are from the Gingerbread Twist CD. I just added some lace, brads and twine from my stash to jazz things up.|
|The card is flat for easy mailing.|
|I also adhered a sentiment from the Gingerbread Twist CD and made some room for a personal message.|
Although the Gingerbread Twist CD is essentially about Christmas, there are quite a few images, sentiments and other accessories that can be used to create birthday cards and friendship cards. It's quite a versatile collection.
