Gingerbread Slim Line Pocket Card
Posted on December 01 2020
Hey, there! Just look at these cute little gingerbread men from LDRS Creative in their snow globe! Ah! I think everything is cuter in a snow globe, don't you!?
Blue and silver is a classic winter color combination - but I never seem to use it! My neighbor decorated their house in blue and white lights and it inspired me to use those colors on my card today. I created an easy little snow globe scene with those adorable gingerbread men. I used Raven Hybrid Ink to stamp my images from the Gingerbread Kisses and Snow Deer to Me Stamp Sets. The snow globe can be tricky to stamp so that it will line up with the coordinating die, but I have a trick for you! I like to just drop my stamp onto my cardstock and pick it up with my stamping tool without fussing with the globe. I find this is the easiest way to make sure the globe retains its shape. I colored all of my images with alcohol markers and used the coordinating Snow Deer to Me Dies as well as the Gingerbread Kisses Die Set.
I kept the blue trend going right through to the background. I used the Slim Line Basket Weave Pocket Die Set to cut a fun background from blue cardstock. I love these new Slim Line Pocket Die Sets! They have two dies and you can use them separately or together for a variety of looks. I decided to use both of the dies together for my background.
I cut a card base to be 3.5" x 5.5" and added all of my pieces on top. I added a healthy coating of shimmer as well as some clear gems. I love the unexpected size of this Slim Line Pocket card and that it will fit in a traditional A2 envelope! Thanks for joining me. I'll see you soon!
