A Sweet Season (August TCP Tuesday)

TCP Tuesday for August is in full swing. The challenge this month is to create a tall card to fit inside a business envelope. 

I usually make at least a few Christmas cards in this size every year so that's what I decided to do with the challenge. I cut out the gingerbread boy from pre-corrugated cardstock using the Man CutUps. I stamped the eyes from the Homemade for the Holidays cling set to use as a guideline for the rhinestones eyes. I found the ric rac trim in my stash and added two Queen and Co Candy Stripers for the "candy" buttons. The sentiment was stamped onto one of the pieces from the Circus Panels CutUps and then matted with another of the pieces from the set. I created a border using some wide May Arts ribbon layered with seam binding onto which I added a button and two stickpins.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamps and CutUps, Authentique dp, Seam binding, Queen and Co embellishments, Kaisercraft jewels, Maya Road and Fancy Pants stickpins, May Arts ribbon, Making Memories button
