Silhouette Cameo Christmas cards

Hello everyone, and a very warm welcome to Shelly who is a new follower this week. I really appreciate the time that you spend looking at my posts and when you leave a comment or decide to follow the blog, it really makes my day!

Today I had some happy post from Ann at love making things

Thank you so much Ann. I love those gorgeous dresses on the card you made and I will definitely be putting the stamps and dies to good use as I try to get on with my Christmas cards. Ann has such an interesting blog and I recommend that you visit her if you haven't already found it.

I played around with my Silhouette Cameo today and came up with a couple of Christmas cards using a gingerbread man shape.

I cut some gingerbread men shapes out of Kraft card and drew on some features with a white gel pen and added some red bow ties cut on the Cam. Rather than just sticking them onto a card, I decided to cut a panel to go over them so there would be some dimension and they could be peeked at through the negative space

A sentiment, a flourish and some little hearts finished it off. I did ink the panel to take away the starkness of the white.

I made another version using aqua mist card and some little stars instead of the hearts

I'm going to enter this into the current Inspire me Friday challenge- anything goes,
 the Through the Craftroom Door challenge - anything goes,
and the Creative Card Crew challenge which is to use a star.

Thank you for stopping by.
