Merry Christmas Everyone! Says this darling Gingerbread Man!

During The Stamp Simply Ribbon Store's 12 Days of clean and simple (CAS) Christmas ideas, there is a posting everyday at 8am and another at 8pm.  Well, today I have both time slots!  So if this is your first stop to Explore.Dream.Discover. today, please check out THIS post for a Ho, Ho, Ho! ornament card!

If you are looking for darling, easy, and all around fun, this guy fits the bill!  Sharon has these 7" x 5.5" foam gingerbread men now stocked in her store, HERE!  HERE are two samplers Sharon has put together especially for this Gingerbread paper pad!

Kaisercraft's Gingerbread paper pad is the perfect companion to use for embellishing!  You can see I cut out a vest, added pockets, button line, and a bow tie using the paper! The lollipop is used with punch outs included in the paper pad!  

A reminder about Kaisercraft paper pads: 
  • Gingerbread paper pad contains twenty-four single-sided 6-1/2 x 6-1/2 inch designer papers (two each of twelve designs)
  • Eight 6-1/2 x 6-1/2 inch spot varnish papers (two each of four designs)
  • Four 6-1/2 x 6-1/2 inch foil papers (two each of two designs)
  • Four 6-1/2 x 6-1/2 inch die-cut pages

I used ScorTape to adhere the RicRac trim to the foam.  I also utilized ScorTape to attach the paper vest which worked perfectly!  Those awesome sugar dots stickers say put too on the foam!  They are perfect, no? A quick note about the smile on this creation, I used a Zig white paint pen!  Again, can I say perfect?  

I have so many ideas using these gingerbread men!  How about an ornament? A gift bag tie on? Monogrammed? Joining the hands to create a banner?  Children would have a wonderful time creating using these foam gingerbread cuties too! Oh my, yes the possibilities endless!   THANK YOU for stopping by today!  I appreciate your visit!
