Handmade Wishes, Nothing's Better Than & Framed & Festive Stamp Sets

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by 2 challenges, the Gingerbread Theme over @ Fusion Card Challenge & the Inspiration image over @ Just Add Ink #630 Challenge.  Please click on the hyperlinks to visit their blogs, then go and find a few stamp sets you can coordinate together for a fun festive card.

When I saw the Gingerbread theme and versatile sketch from Fusion I knew I needed to use the little Gingerbread cookies from Handmade Wishes Stamp Set, #159684.  Then when I saw the Red & White theme with a coffee pot, cookie jar and little girl baking cookies, I knew I needed to pull it all together with the Nothing's Better Than Stamp Set, #152507.  The fun sentiment is from the New Limited Time Framed & Festive Stamp Set, #160888, (available 'til January 4th 2023, while supplies last) 


***  The Trix  ***

*  The *Trix with this super sketch is all in the layers of the band across the 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 landscape card.  Vary the widths in the band to add dimension and interest:  

Kraft Paper 4 3/16 x 5 7/16 

Cherry Cobbler cardstock 2 1/8 x 5 15/16

Lights Aglow DSP 2 x 5 15/16

Basic White cardstock 1 3/8 x 5 1/4 

*  Stamp the Cinnamon Cider gingerbreads on the Basic White strip but pop up the coffee cups coloured with Stampin' Blends Markers, in Cherry Cobbler & Cinnamon Cider.  (Cinnamon Cider has retired but Crumb Cake is the closest alternative)

*  The sentiment adds a bit of whimsy and the retired) Wonderful Gems, looked like little drops of cinnamon sugar.
