Gingerbread Man

As you know from this weeks posts that today is my day to post for Card A Day Blog, the theme is Christmas Food and I'm continuing the Gingerbread Man theme.  I made an Easel card for today's card.   I used Design Studio to size up my pieces.  

My card size is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 and I'm not planning on using this card in an envelope but attaching to the bag of Gingerbread cookies that I will be making and giving to someone special. 



The ric rac is from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge.  I added a sheer ribbon behind my gingerbread man with the bow tied on the side.
