Gingerbread men & hot chocolate cards

Now I've given these little hot chocolate cards out I can share them on here.
For my card I've chosen red  & gold mirror card which I embossed.  I made little pockets & placed a single sachet of Hot Chocolate & a candy cane which I decorated with a branch from a garland I didn't want anymore. To this I added a berry & a pointsetter  which was cut using a spell binders die & glitter card.
Just to finish of my cards I stamp warm winter wishes on some white card.
The ladies at my craft club were delighted when they received these.

 Next I made a larger card using the sizzix gingerbread man die again & made two large cards but the decided for the two ladies that got these cards the would have their hot chocolate in a little cross over box which I found the instruction  on YouTube by Chicnscratch. 

 The paper I used to make these boxes was called Plum pudding Sherry Trifle. & added the same as I did for the treat cards above.
I just love this little gingerbread man die & use it so much .

Twist & Pop up Birthday card

I've seen a lot of people are making the twist pop up cards & with my sons birthday coming up I thought I'd have a go at making one .
There are lots of videos on YouTube showing how to make one but the one I used for instructions was a lady call Maymay her instructions were very easy to follow.
After I made the pop up card I then had to decorate it .
The caravan paper I chose was by called happy camper by Jillybean Soup.
I used a sizzix die to cut the balloons & added a little bit of brown cord.

 The inside pop up I stamped the birthday message & used gold mirror card that I embossed . I stuck two corner pieces on the mirror card so that I was able to tuck some money inside the card for him.

Gingerbread man Christmas Cards

I brought a long  Woodware stamp which has these three Gingerbread men on.
I just had to have this stamp as soon as I saw it .
I've been trying out a few different ways of using the stamp.
I stamped them out on some brown card & coloured in a few pieces of these little guys.
 Next I stamped the image out on slightly darker card & cut them out to add to make smaller cards which 3x3 inch, & a good why of using up some scraps of card.

Christmas Wreath

My Christmas wreath was made using three wreath rings brought from Hobby craft.
I love all things Disney related & anything to do with gingerbread men as well.
I first saw this idea of putting the three rings together to make a Mickey Mouse head on Facebook & many people had decorated it mostly in the Disney theme.
I had a few gingerbread men already made up & added them to the wreath .
The gingerbread men I cut from felt using a sizzix die & blanket stitched around the outside.
I went through the Christmas box to get the other decorations which I've wired on.
