Hello there, friends! Aren’t those perky gingerbread friends adorable?! I can’t help but smile when I look at them! They’re from the Meet Me Under the Mistletoe set by Whimsy Stamps. The set is being retired and is currently on sale, so get it before it’s gone for good!
After stamping that sweet couple with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, I colored them with Copics and cut them out. I added some highlights with a white gel pen and some sparkle with clear Wink of Stella.
To create my background, I die-cut a mask with the Stitched Heart Die set (also on sale) and ink-blended my card with Picked Raspberry Distress Ink. I flicked on some water droplets and blotted them with a paper towel. I added some plaid paper to the bottom of my card and wrapped some green rick-rack above it (so retro, I know, but I love how the rick-rack picks up the icing on the little gingerbread people). I popped up my colored images with foam tape, stamped a sentiment from Holiday Sweet Treats (retired), and added some red Nuvo Drops.
