Short, Sweet and Shabby

Hi Everyone!
Seeing as I am quite under the weather today, this blog post will be short.  It is sweet as it is all about gingerbread and it is shabby because I have the pleasure  of being guest designer for the Shabby Tea Room this week. 
Red, white, gingham and gingerbread all have to be components of your cards/projects this week.

I started with my treat holder (instructions here); I guess I am not a gingerbread person because I had to search through all of my craft supplies to find one lone piece of dp with gingerbread men on it.  I cut him out in a circle, added a kraft circle that I had lying on my desk and then added my scalloped circle.  The gingham is stamped  and a piece of Gumball Green cs is layered on top of it.  My sewing machine decided to act up on me part way through my project, so the stitches are not quite right.
I love the holly from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Christmas Silhouettes; I stamped several of these and die cut them out, then covered them with Stampendous Crystal Snow.
You may be wondering why my card is not identical to my treat holder.  Well, truth be told, I really, really dislike making multiples of anything.  For the card, I added a banner and a strip of muslin which I wrapped around the gingham layer, gathered the two ends together, and tied them with some baker's twine.  Red buttons and baker's twine finish off both projects.
Do you still have Christmas projects to finish?  Stop by the Shabby Tea Room and play along!

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed week!
