Gingerbread Man Cards

Today on my blog I am featuring three projects that I created using the Gingerbread Man Fold-it die set from The Stamps of Life.

Watch my video tutorial for all three projects here:

Project 1

For the first project, I created a gingerbread man fold-it card. A fold-it card is an A2 sized card shaped like a gingerbread man. It can easily fit into an A2 sized envelope.  You can either have the card open at the top or on the left side. I chose mine to open from the top. The die set also has several die pieces that you can use to decorate the gingerbread man. Some of the dies include a face, clothing, icing, and more.

The card stock I used for this card includes ginger snap, powdered sugar, and strawberry. I used a piece of patterned paper from the Joyful collection paper pad for the blue plaid overalls. I added epoxy dots for the buttons. I inked the edges of the smaller gingerbread die cut with gingersnap ink. I think this added a nice touch. It makes it look like a toasted cookie!

Since this is a fold-it card, I decorated the front and the back and I think it turned out super cute!

For my next project, I created a gingerbread gate fold card. I used the largest die in the set and cut it out of gingersnap card stock. I used the second largest die and cut another piece of gingersnap card stock. Again, I used gingersnap ink and ink-blended the edges to make it look slightly toasted. I adhered those together and then added his clothing and icing.  The card stock is gingersnap, powdered sugar, and spearmint. The patterned paper is from the Joyful collection paper pad. I fussy cut the peppermints and adhered them to the front of the pockets. I also used foam adhesive to add three as buttons.

Supplies:

  1. Gingerbread Man Fold-It Die Set
  2. Ginger Snap Cardstock
  3. Powdered Sugar Cardstock
  4. Strawberry Cardstock
  5. Gingersnap Ink Pad
  6. Joyful Collection Paper Pad

Project 2

I used a gate fold card die to make the card base and adhered the gingerbread man to the front left opening. I used spearmint cardstock for the bow tie and pockets. The patterned paper I used is from the Joyful collection paper pad. I fussy cut the peppermints from one of the pieces of paper and adhered them to the pockets. I added foam adhesive to the three peppermints that I used as buttons.

For the inside of the card, I used a piece of powdered sugar cardstock. I stamped the peppermints as shown. The inside of the peppermints were stamped with strawberry ink. The Merry Christmas sentiment is from the ChristmasTree2stamp and was stamped with spearmint ink.

I die cut and decorated two gingerbread men, one for the front of the box and one for the back of the box. Both gingerbread men were decorated identically.

I also used the box-it die which I cut with gingersnap card stock to match the gingerbread men. I connected the box-it die cut to both gingerbread men, added some grass filling, and some candy canes.
