2RedBananas Banana Split Sunday – Stay Warm

When I saw the theme of this week’s Banana Split Sunday Challenge was to make a card reflecting “warmth” I was a bit stumped. Then when I saw the gingerbread people in the new Journaling Spot set, I knew what I wanted to do. What could be warmer than freshly-baked gingerbread cookies! I hope you will join in the challenge this week. The prize this week is a super-cute House Mouse stamp.

The gingerbread people are done on gingerbread-colored cardstock, cut out and mounted on Pop Dots. I used gel pens to color the icing on them, and a black glaze pen for their eyes and buttons. The embossed snowflakes borders are done with a Cuttlebug folder. There is a piece of Real Red cardstock partially matting the image panel. The striped paper is from an old Fiskars book. The sentiment is from a Stampin’ Up! set called All Year Cheer.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you’ll come back and visit again soon!
