A blog devoted to the cards I make in my tiny upstairs space. When my sister stays there, she calls it an "artist's garret". I'm not an artist, but am an enthusiastic cardmaker - hence the title "Cardmaker's Garret".

Kraft and Red with Gingerbread

Merry Monday's challenge this week is Kraft and Red:

I  went with a gingerbread theme as that works really well for kraft and red. 

Pretty straightforward - stamped and die cut the gingerbread men, stamped the sentiment and die cut it with a tag, die cut the red panel with a stitched rectangle die, and assembled, using foam tape to pop the gingerbread up and twine for the tag. Added a few red pearl gemstones for the buttons on the gingerbread men.

It's also a perfect card for the SCS Ways to Use It challenge "Mmmm, Food".

Stamps - SU Scentsational Season, Old Island Stamp Co. sentiment
Ink - SU Baked Brown Sugar
Paper - red, kraft, and white cs
Size - A2
Accessories - SU gingerbread die, Spellbinders tag die, Lil Inkers stitched rectangle die, twine, red pearl gemstones, foam tape
