Gingerbread Spinner Card & Gingerbread Bag & Tag

Last Thursday my friend Wendy came over for a crafty play.  At our last card group meeting we decorated a gift tag and made a gingerbread man tag and Wendy said she wanted to make another bag and tag - but with a gingerbread girl this time.  Wendy also wanted to make a gingerbread spinner card in traditional Christmas colours.

Here's the bag and tag.


Here's a closer look at the tag.  I dressed the gingerbread girl in a red dress, added a bow and some red gems to the flowers on the dress.  Very sweet!


For the spinner card I made a 5 5/8" square Cherry Cobbler card and I cut mat layers in Garden Green and Cherry Cobbler.  I die cut the circle spinner channel from the Cherry Cobbler mat layer using a die from the MFT Die-namics 'Circle Spinner Channels' die set.  I embossed the layer with the Leane Creatief 'Snowflakes Background' embossing folder.  I glued the green mat in place and popped up the Cherry Cobbler mat layer using 3mm thick 3D foam tape.  For the spinner element I sandwiched a small round 3D foam pad between two pennies and I placed the element into the track.  I die cut one gingerbread man from Crumb Cake CS, cut another from white CS and inlaid the white pieces into the Crumb Cake shape.  I added a bow tie and buttons and inked the edges of the gingerbread man using Crumb Cake ink and a sponge dauber.  I adhered the gingerbread man to the spinner element with strong double sided tape.  I stamped and die cut the sentiment label and added sparkly gold photo corners.  To complete the card front I added a sparkly gold punched snowflake to the sentiment label.  The jolly gingerbread man was spun quite a few times around the track during the day! 😊


Here's the inside of the card and the envelope with stamped snowflake borders and a "'tis the season to be jolly" sentiment.  A very happy and fun card to make!
