Baby Gingers

I posted my Gingerbread House treat box earlier today HERE.  I thought it would be nice to make a cute little card to go along with the box.  Since we postponed the Peachy Keen Let's Face it Friday challenge to December 8th, I wanted to share this baby gingerbread card with all of my readers.  I've always loved the sweet little faces from the Peachy Keen Snow Cuties set.  It's such a versatile set for snowmen, gingers and people.  I used the assortment size set HERE because I needed the smaller 3/4" size stamps for the faces.  Additionally, I used the new Oh by golly! greeting set.  The greetings in this set are perfect for all of your cute and whimsical projects!  See the tutorial below for my baby gingers card.

Baby Gingers Card Tutorial

Punch the following pieces out of Crumb Cake card stock for the baby gingers with Stampin' Up! punches:
3 Small Ovals (from current catalog) for heads
3 1" Circles for bodies
6 3/8" Circles for hands (from Itty Bitty Shapes punch set)

Stamp the Snow Cuties 3/4" faces on small ovals with black ink.  Add white hilights to eyes with uniball white gel pen.  Stipple regal rose ink onto cheeks (I suggest the brushes HERE). Apply regal rose ink to nose with blender pen or brush.  Sponge edges of ginger pieces with Soft Suede ink.  


For the card, cut 4" x 8" piece of Real Red card stock and fold in half.  Cut piece of Holly Berry Bouquet designer series paper 3-7/8" x 2-1/2".  Cut piece of 4" x 1-1/2" Chocolate Chip card stock.  Emboss with Square Lattice embossing folder.  Trim the length of piece down to 3-7/8" (I suggest embossing before cutting since the paper shrinks a little when it's embossed).  Mount designer paper onto card base, aligning left, right and top borders equally.  Glue body pieces of gingers along bottom of designer series paper.

Mount chocolate chip piece, aligning left, right and bottom borders equally (it will overlap bottom of ginger bodies).  Cut a piece of red glimmer paper 1/2" x 3-7/8" and mount over the seams of DSP and chocolate chip card stock.  Attach ginger hands and heads with dimensionals.

Cut piece of real red card stock 1" x 3" and corner round edges.  Cut piece of crumb cake card stock 7/8" x 2-7/8" and corner round edges.  Sponge edges of crumb cake with soft suede ink.  Stamp greeting from Oh by golly! stamp set with red red ink.  Layer onto real red piece and attach greeting to top center of card.  Punch small heart in real red and attach with dimensional.
