I’m having fun with the new Buffalo Check background stamp, and today it’s making a Christmas box for the Cookie Cutter Gingerbread Man. Instead of “Jack-in-the-Box,” he is “Gingerbread-in-the-box.”
First, I stamped the Buffalo Check with Real Red ink on Thick Whisper White cardstock. The Stamparatus tool insured I would get a perfect coverage of ink.
Next, I used “Merry,” a die from the Merry Christmas die set, to cut the word from the top of my stamped Buffalo Check. Then, I layered it for sturdiness, and glued it, lining it up with the pattern, for a “partial eclipse.” It’s hard to see the dimension in the pictures, but the Buffalo Check piece is raised on Foam Adhesive Strips.
To complete the sentiment, I stamped “Christmas” (Merry Christmas to All stamp set) in Real Red ink, and used the label die (Merry Christmas die set) for cutting.
For the background, I embossed a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Tin Tile embossing folder. It has a country home, kitchen feel about it, don’t you think?
This is where the Gingerbread Man (Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set) “popped” into my head. Isn’t he cute jumping out of the box? I stamped him in Crumb Cake ink on Whisper White cardstock, and Punched him out with his Cookie Cutter Punch. I used the punch for his little Real Red cardstock heart also.
The whole Idea for this card began with this week’s CAS(E) this sketch challenge. Challenges are great for inspiration!
Finally, for a touch of green, I added three Garden Green, pine sprigs from the Pretty Pines die set. I used a Crumb Cake card base to complement the Gingerbread Man.
This was so much fun to create. I really enjoy combining well loved products with brand new offerings. I’m so glad I didn’t pass on the Buffalo Check background stamp.
