Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop Week 5 - Gingerbread Man Giftcard Holder

Hello and welcome back to week 5 of the Sizzix triple play blog hop. Please click on the navigation bar on the right side of my blog to get to the next designer. You can hop either forward or backward. For this week's project, we are using Karen Burniston's gift card holder, 3-D pop-up die. I have actually made quite a few gift card holders with this die prior to this week's project.
To decorate the front of my card, I used all Hero Arts stamps. For the gingerbread man, I embossed him with white embossing powder and cut around the stamped image and stuck pearl gemstones for his eyes. The stamp is from a set called Christmas trio.
On the green card background, I used a stamp called happy festive background. And the word is from a stamp set called magic of Christmas.
When you open the card, the gift card holder pops up with the phrase "for you". There are many different themes that you can make with this die. I went with a Christmas theme only because this month is Christmas.
Sorry that the photos are kind of bright but taking photos today was a little challenging due to the rainy weather we were having and I tried my best to make it brighter. Hope it's not blinding you.
Supplies:
656740 - Gift card holder, 3-D pop-up
Hero Arts stamps - LP177 Christmas trio, S5446 Happy festive background, CL462 Magic of Christmas
Pearl gemstones
White embossing powder
Offray red ribbon
Thanks for stopping by and visiting today and don't forget to come back next week Thursday for another Sizzix project! Have a great day!!!

Hi Cheryl, I love this card, it's very festive and I love gingerbread men.
I was in J's today and I think I bought the last bigz die for this pop-up card. I actually went over my budget today. Oh wait, I went over my budget a long time ago. LOL
Hugs!
