You get an extra chance to win when you use a SweetStamps image on your creation.

**All of these techniques and more can be found on the TUTORIALS page of our website** 
Well here is my take on it!

I had a great time creating this easel card.  I just love Pink and Blue and some white!
I used textured white card for my main card, made my folds to create the base for my Easel Card.
After I completed my main image I layered it on Pink and Blue cards stock and then again on another white card.
I added it to the flap of my Easel Card

I just love these stamps! I created a Scene with the
Sweet Ginger Bread House and the Ginger Bread Boy and Girl Duo
I stamped them with memento ink and coloured it in with my 
Copics and Promarkers

B21, B23, B24, R81, R83 & R85

March Hare & Tand

I used Blending Chalks to create the clouds
and around my picture to give it depth

As you can see in the picture bellow that the Ginger Bread Boy and Girl are freestanding,crating a 3D image. I made them each a extra bit to stand freely.
I added Blue and Pink string bows
to my Boy and Girl
They were part of my stopper for my top of my Easel Card.

This lovely sentiment is part of the Ginger Bread House Stamp Due
I used a Spellbinders plain circle and scalloped circle
I used Distressed Ink Spun Sugar around the edges of my sentiment 
I made these flowers
I layered every thing to mimic the top of my Easel Card 

I really enjoyed this project.
