 Gingerbread men and Christmas are thought together simultaneously- and this is a most adorable one.

He was stamped with Tip Top Taupe ink and then sponged with Early Espresso ink.  Little red hearts were adhered to her tummy, and a red glitter bow tie under the chin.  Tiny pearls became the eyes.  A santa's hat, from the stamp set "Snow Place" was stamped, coloured, cut out and adhered to his head.
Liquid Applique was applied to the icing marks on the arms, legs and the fur of the hat.  This substance when heated puffs up and looks like fur, snow, or icing.

Using dimensionals, the dressed up gingerbread man was adhered to a Whisper White oval, which was matted with a slightly larger scalloped red glimmer oval.  This unit was adhered to a Whisper White panel matted with Real Red card stock.  Candy Cane Lane Baker's Twine was wrapped around the bottom and tied into a bow.

The base card is Real Red card stock. layered with Whisper White, and then Candy Cane Lane DSP.

The sentiment "Merry" is from the "Hello You" thinlets.  The red glimmer word was adhered sideways across the card.  A couple of snow flakes added some extra bling.
