a super cute cork gingerbread man and an adorable matching card!
Okay, this is another card I just LOVE. This little cork gingerbread cookie was inspired by these absolutely adorable gingerbread cookies printed on this paper by October Afternoon:
You wanna know how I did it? It was so easy! I scanned a gingerbread man from the paper and resized it in my photo software to the size I wanted my little cork cookie on my card. Then I printed it, and cut it out for using as a template to cut out my cork. I just drew the outline directly onto the cork with a pencil, then trimmed him out! To finish him off, I used two brown brads for his eyes, a white opaque pen for the frosting which I freehanded by referring to the originals on the printed paper. Then I added red buttons on his belly, and then, probably the toughest part - I punched 1/8" hole punches out of red cardstock. Then one by one, glued them onto his cute little smile. That took a little time, because those little circles were so small, and to get to get just the right curve was a little tricky. But surely you could achieve the same effect by using Stickles or something else. Other than that, this was a very easy fun card to put together, and anyone can do it!
