Gingerbread Cutie Center Step Card

So of course as you can see... this entire card was centered around my new adorable Peachy Keen Gingerbread Dolls - Large Stamp (PK-417)  that I recently ordered.  I stamped her on Kraft cardstock and cut her out.  I then paper pieced her... I stamped certain sections again like the dress area on the purple Polk a dot paper... the frosting hair on pink and then again on purple so I could cut out the bows and even the collar area in white.  I am not much of a hand cutting person but paper piecing this little cutie was so worth it :) I used a white almost clear puffy paint for the collar then sprinkled it with white glitter.  I also used pink puffy paint for her frosting squiggles, Pink gel pen for nose, white gel pen for eyes and cheek dots and a little pink chalk to rosy up those cheeks.

The card itself is a center step card I created myself, I also created the pink and purple bottom layers in Scal 2 then ran them through my Snowflake embossing folder.  The Beautiful Oval Behind her is from Spellbinders Opulent Ovals, The fancy border under the Baubles is from Spellbinders Frosty Forms.  The  Snowflakes are from My Craft spot Snowflake Border metal dies, Bauble ornaments are from Cricut Very Merry Tags, front Merry Christmas sentiment stamped on a Spellbinders Banner Die is from Craftin Desert Diva's called Happy Celebrations.

inside stamps are from Cardmaker and I tried to coordinate the inks with colors I used on the front of the card.  "May Magical Moments and Happy Memories Surround You With Joy this Christmas"  I just love that awesome sentiment.  Oh and all of my piecing's including the inside mat are all inked up with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress ink.  Also I added some bling to the bauble ornaments and the snowflakes.
