Two Gingerbread Girl Spinner Christmas Cards

A friend at work, Shirley, asked me to make three personalised Christmas cards for her,  Two cards were for five year old twins Daisy and Danielle and I decided a gingerbread girl spinner card would be ideal!  Shirley also wanted a card for baby Archie who will be celebrating his first Christmas - I'll share Archie's card next time.

Here are the two cards together.

Here's just one card.  I used Real Red, Crumb Cake and Whisper White CS and added in some Red and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper for a bit of seasonal sparkle.  The patterned papers I used are from the SU! 'Candy Cane Lane' DSP pack.  I lightly edged each gingerbread shape with Soft Suede ink using a sponge dauber to add a touch of definition.

Here's a photo showing how I decorated the insides of the cards and the envelopes.
