A Recipe for Gingerbread

This is the third Wednesday of November, which means it is the day that Barb, Kelly, and I reveal our Ready, Set, Go cards. 

Not sure what Ready, Set, Go is? Well, it's a lot of fun! And a bit of creativity. And an extreme challenge theme.

Ready, Set, Go is an idea that Kelly came up with and she invited Barb and I to join her on the adventure. We take turns choosing the theme (this month it's Kelly's turn), but the idea is for it to be a bit more challenging than just the average theme.

This is Kelly's theme...


Create a card (or project) that FEATURES a gingerbread man/woman. Don't have a stamp? There are digis - some of them free! Next step in the recipe, since gingerbread rises when you bake it, have a raised feature on your card. This can be as easy as glitter glue or Stickles or really fancy like a pop up card - your choice! For the next step, use one of the colors of the word G-I-N-G-E-R-B-R-E-A-D and use that color as your trimming (hairbows, bowties, etc.)

Okay, first... I didn't have a stamp so I went searching. I found a free image that worked for what I had in mind. Chicfetti to the rescue!

I printed it out in the size I wanted and lightly glued it to the back of a piece of brown cardstock. Then I cut it out. I sponged Lawn Fawn Walnut ink around the edges to give it a more finished look (that doesn't show up well in the photos). For my "raised" feature, I used Ranger Liquid Pearls to paint on the white icing accents. The eyes are Glitter Enamel Dots from Eyelet Outlet.

Red buttons are my "R" item.

For my card design I added a circle of red cardstock in an attempt to create the look of the gingerbread on a plate - I'm not sure how well that worked.

I hope Kelly and Barb like my card. Be sure to check out Barb's blog and Kelly's blog to see what they did with this Ready Set Go theme!
