Gingerbread Man at For Fun

This week's For Fun challenge is to make a non-traditional shaped card & we are lucky to be sponsored by StampFairy & I chose this gorgeous Gingerbabies Candy Canes  & made him the shape of the card.  I cut his body from Kraft card & coloured the candy cane in with Promarkers & added Glossy Accents, I used pearlescent glue for the icing & made a sign with a chipboard greeting & lolly stick.  I finished him off with a gem nose, a ribbon & a star brad.  Helen is also looking for new DT members so why not get in touch :)

The challenges:
Winter Wonderland - Shape Up!
Scrappy Frogs - Merry Christmas
Let's Craft & Create - Anything Goes
I Did It - Surprise Me
Everybody-Art - Gingerbread Time
Die Cut Dreams - Sweets & Candy
