Gingerbread Man Card

There are so many Christmas in July things going on right now so I thought I would join in the Christmas spirit and make a Christmas card!
When I saw the Cookies For Santa SVG kit at SVG Attic I knew exactly what I wanted to make.  I love anything gingerbread to decorate with for Christmas, so I chose the gingerbread man card from that set, but changed it up a bit.  Instead of making a shaped card, I made the cuts 3.5" tall and they were the perfect size for my card front.  
The doily is cut from the 4" metal die from My Craft Spot.  The tag is a sentiment that I just typed up on my computer and then I fussy cut out the tag.  The patterned paper is from DCWV's Holiday Collection The Christmas Stack.  I also embossed the green cardstock with a Christmas embossing folder.  The green crinkled ribbon is from Karen at Little Scrap Pieces.

If you like this card, just wait until this weekend!  SVG Attic is going to be having a Christmas in July blog hop...It is sure to be fun so set your calenders for Saturday at their blog and hop along with us.
