Handmade Card: Warm wishes

This toasty little gingerbread baby wishes you a warm and happy holiday!

I don't naturally gravitate to cute designs, but I really wanted to use this guy. My kids love the story Gingerbread Baby (the Jan Brett one, becasue she is just awesome!) so looking at this little man makes me happy.  I filled in his hands and feet with white heat embossing to make it look like icing.

And check out those buttons! They are cut out and embossed in one step with the Stampin' Up Sweet Buttons Embosslit Die and the Big Shot. Then of course I had to ink 'em and add some glitter!


  1. Oh my word - this is just the cutest card ever! I will be honest and tell you that when I first saw the thumbnail on Facebook I thought, "That does not look like a 'Deanna' card." Upon closer inspection (if I can stop looking at the super cute gingerbreadman for a second) I see the clever use of overlapping Decorative Label punches and of course your leftover frame from the Top Note die. That's the Deanna we know and love! I just fot that embosslit and I lurve it!

  2. Thanks, Cheryl! I stared at that guy a while trying to figure out what to do with him.
    Now I need to increase my embosslit button usage!

  3. You are on a roll with your cards!! I love the buttons and the "frosting" on the gingerbread man!! So cute!!
