Another layout I found on Pinterest!

Cherry Cobbler card.  Sign the back.

White panel 4” x 5-1/2”, which I know, is the same size as the card.  I find Cable Knit embossing folder shrinks the cardstock a bit so I would sooner cut it bigger then trim to fit my card.  Using the Stampin’ Spritzer, spritz cardstock with water on both sides before putting it in the Cable Knit embossing folder - it is suggested that the card stock be lightly spritzed with water to relax the paper fibers so that they will stretch and not break while being embossed.  Because the folder is so thick the Sandwich is a bit different: Regular platform – cardstock in embossing folder – cutting pad.  Set aside to dry.

Cut Presents and Pinecones DSP at 1-1/2” x 5-1/4”.  Over stamp with the ornaments from the Cozy Critters stamp set in Crumb Cake ink.  Set aside.

Cut Cherry Cobbler cardstock 1” x 5-1/4”.  Punch one long edge with the Scallop border punch and adhere to top of DSP.  Adhere to Cable Knit panel.  Lay panel on card front but do not adhere.  Trim if necessary.  Set aside.

Cut Taupe ribbon 10” long.  Wrap around a ‘D’ clear block.  Tie a knot.  Trim both ends on an angle.

Remove from block.  Set on Cable Knit panel to determine where to cut it. 

Tape ends to the back.  Adhere to card front. 

Pop a glue dot behind knot of ribbon.  Set aside.

Cut a 2-1/2” circle – I used my Coluzzle as that is what I have - from the Emerald Envy cardstock.  Apply Dimensionals and adhere to card front. Set aside.

Stamp the gingerbread man from the Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set on to a 2” wide strip of white cardstock using Crumb Cake ink.  Punch out with the Cookie Cutter Builder punch.  Adhere so that his feet are at the bottom of the circle.

Cut a strip 1-1/2” wide of Cherry Cobbler cardstock.  Punch the main hat piece and two hearts using the Jolly Hat Builder punch.  Run the hat through the Square Lattice embossing folder

Adhere hearts to the gingerbread man for buttons.  Color hearts with the clear Wink of Stella

Cut a scrap of white cardstock ¾” wide.  Stamp using the Touches of Texture stamp set and Cherry Cobbler ink.

Punch the band and pompom out with the Jolly Hat Builder punch.  Assemble hat on the gingerbread man.

Color two pearls from the Pearl Basic Jewels with a black Sharpie

Adhere to gingerbread man for eyes.

Remember the writing tablet?  Perfect for the inside of cards.  Fold a piece in half. Stamp with a phrase and an image if desired.  Adhere to inside of the card.

Make an envelope from Christmas wrapping paper using the envelope punch board.
