Give a Crafter a Cookie Challenge: Cookies for Santa
We have a new challenge this week at "Give a Crafter a Cookie".
Here is the image we are working with. Beautiful!
I wanted to do something fun and adorable for two sets of people. One being my husband's coworkers and the second being for SAS4Kids. I made enough of these gingerbread face cards for both! The best part was using up scraps and using Christmas/Winter embellishments that were trapped in a drawer somewhere.
|The face is two files combined from My Scrap Chick. I used|
the smile from a snowman face to brighten up the card. I didn't want to
send a "sad" face to kids in hospitals.
I did alter the smile and eyes by using the shadow feature on SCAL3.
Bigger eyes are easier to work with. Also, I cut the smile out once and
traced it with a black pen to save me the headache of working
with a thin cut (and using a bunch of extra black card stock).
