Sweet Holiday Wishes

Good Morning Everyone!!! I woke up this morning thinking it was know what that means...yep, it means I have an extra day for crafting...WOOHOO! For some reason, I just can't get back into my Thanksgiving Day cards so here is another Christmas one---I thought I'd send it to one of my granddaughter's for Christmas.
I got these Gingerbread buttons at Walmart but when I got them home, I noticed NO holes, NO way to sew them to anything but yet they were marked "buttons"...go figure, I guess that's WalMart for you! Anyway, I glued the gingerbread girl to layers that were cut with
circle/scallop Nestibility than I added rain hearts and pierced holes in the inner circle, each layer is pop dotted. The words are computer generated using CK Wonderland font. The band was embossed with Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder and layered with a band that was cut with Fiskars Threading Water Border punch and added a ribbon bow. The words on the tag are also computer generated using CK Wonderland font and cut with Spellbinder tag then tied to the ribbon. The corners are cut with the square Nestibilities then cut at a diagonal and added a EK scallop corner punch. The holly leaves were cut with Punch a Bunch holly punch and added buttons that I knotted with contrasting embroidery thread. The snowflake was cut with Cuttlebug Snowflake die that 3-4 layers of card stock were glued together before cutting and glittered. I added a flat back gemstone.
That's it for today...Have a GREAT day!
