Monochromatic Rocking Gingerbread Christmas Card

This week we have a monochromatic challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments.  My card was also inspired by the cute gingerbread in the Scentsational Season Bundle.  He’s so cute!  My card is also a rocking card which is so much fun to decorate.  Click here for a tutorial on how to make this card.

I cut a Soft Suede 5″ circle and a 4-1/2″ Very Vanilla  circle with my retired Stampin’ Up! Circle Scissor Plus.  I embossed the Very Vanilla circle with the Perfect Polka Dot folder then folded them in half and glued them together.

Rocking Christmas Card

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a fun challenge – Fancy Fold Cards.   With only few more days left till Christmas I decided to make another Christmas card but with a rocking twist.  I had seen this type of card out in internet land and decided to make a rocking Christmas card.  You can view a tutorial for making this card here.  They’re so easy to create!  I cut an Early Espresso 5″ circle and a 4-1/2″ Soft Suede circle with my Circle Scissor Plus then folded them in half and glued them together.

The Scallop Circle Cherry Cobbler layer is embossed with the Snow Burst embossing folder and heat embossed with Iridescent Ice embossing powder.  I used the Scallop Circle and Scallop Circle #2 dies to cut the Cherry Cobbler Scallop Circle and the Lucky Limeade Scallop Circle.  The Gift image is stamped on watercolor paper with brown StayzOn and colored with ink pads and a blender pen.  I used the Circle Scissor Plus to cut out this layer at 2-3/4″ .  To add some more sparkle I framed it with Champagne Glass glitter.  I added an Old Olive button and stamped ‘Merry Christmas’ in Early Espresso on Very Vanilla.

For the back of the card I stamped the bird and ornament image on water color paper then punched with the ornament punch.  I also used ink pads and a blender pen to color.  I stamped snowflakes and heat embossed them in gold along with the sentiment.
