My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Twin Gingerbread

Hi Everyone,
My mind is in holiday mode right now. I sent out my Thanksgiving invitations yesterday, and now I'm thinking Christmas cards. I'm no where near where I should be in terms of being done making them, so if you are in my same boat, here is a card to get your mojo flowing.
I used the traditional red and green colors of the Christmas season for today's offering using stamps from DRS Designs. The background paper was made using the Open Plaid stamped at an angle; this gives a nod to all those peppermint sticks that are popular at this time of the year. For the sentiment I used the
Merry Christmas Recipe Greeting and die cut it using a rectangular Spellbinders die.
I thought since it was a recipe, I would embellish it with twin Gingerbread Boys, which I stamped, fussy cut and colored with Copic markers. A white gel pen was used to create the frosting zig zags, and I finished it with a die cut piece of ric rac and plastic candy :)
Hmmm...Now I've got cookies on the brain...lol! Well, I can't get ahead of myself. I need to get rid of my extra Halloween candy first. And speaking of Halloween, that's the theme of our
See ya there!
