Christmas Card Advent Calendar #13 – Gingerbread Man green theme wreath card

Gingerbread man Christmas card featuring Digi Web Studio Cheryl Seslar Sweet Wreaths topper, by Paperesse.

Today's #13 card uses a pre-colored digital stamp/topper from Digi Web Studio – Sweet Wreaths by Cheryl Seslar (retired). This is from the same set as # 1#7 and #11.

The paper is from Papermania's A4 Jolly Santa paper pack, technically retired, but still working on Amazon, eBay and other sites. The sentiment is my own creation.

I played around with adding ribbon and other goodies to the card design for embellishment, but I so liked the look it had, everything else seemed to clash. I decided to leave it simple with just a wooden button.

  1. Hi Shani, I love all those wonderful background papers you've used. I think you've made the right choice by not adding ribbons and such. The one button is perfect and sets off the image beautifully. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.

  2. I love what looks like [?] and elevation of each of the layers?? This may be a trick of the eye... look at that last photo Shani and see if you see it too? I am thinking it is because of the 'shadow' but then each is lined up so that a paler, grey-green line of the plaid falls right where there would be a shadow. This series is really fun and what a GREAT way to get your cards done by pushing for one a day like this!

  3. Thanks so much for joining us this week at the Watercooler Wednesday "Occasions" challenge Shani and sharing your super cute Gingerbread man card. Love it! The colouring and the DSP are awesome!
