Gingerbread Kisses

****CLICK HERE FOR MY CHRISTMAS CANDY GIVEAWAY!!*****

Hey everyone! Hope you are all having a great week. It's been a busy week so far for me. Decorating and Christmas shopping. I have got to get those parcels sent out. LOL.
Anyway, I have another Christmas card to share with you. This time I used a stamp from Peachy Keen Stamps.
I just love easel cards! Don't you?

When folded is an A2 size card
Patterned paper from Walmart
Cardstock - Papertrey Ink
Gingerbread stamp - Peachy Keen Stamps-Faceless Gingerbread Doll Large

Snowflake stamp - My Craft Spot
Bakers Twine- Twinery
Also used buttons from stash, glue dots, atg, memento inks, stickles, clear embossing powder, Versamark ink, heat gun, white gel pen, glossy accents, pink chalk, pink gel pen


This sentiment is soooo cute! 
I stamped her on kraft cardstock and cut her out. Then I colored her hair and the icing bits with my white gel pen(alot of work) and them covered with glossy accents  to look like icing. What do you think? I used chalk on her cheeks and also added some glossy accents to her little eyes. 
I paper pieced her hair bows and dress with red cardstock. I then added some red stickles and heat embossed her little dress with some cute snowflakes. The little snowflake was the perfect size for her dress. I added some little bows to the buttons with some bakers twine.

I am entering this little cutie into some challenges.
