Gingerbread

I just bought this stamp set from a•muse studio called holiday tags, and yes, it has small images and small text, but small isn't the same as too small.  It's how you use them that counts.
I stamped the gingerbread boy three times, and the sentiment once, and it is just as big a focal image as I could want on a card.  I used the same pink pen and a ruler to give a border effect.  I thought kraft cardstock would go well with the brown of the gingerbread, and I used glaze gellies to give a glossy look to the icing.  The strips of DP are really just the two sides of the same paper - I love double-sided paper!
