In his wonderful reindeer sleigh,
Santa would whisk us all away;
Flying merrily,
Non stop to the NORTH POLE!!
I made a double easel card. I used a YouTube tutorial from Double Easel Cards. All of my card except for the ink is from the Recollections Christmas Noel line. I used VersaColor Ultimate Pigment Ink 301 Noel- red, gold, and green- on the sweater of the Daddy of the Gingerbread family and the sentiment. The sentiment is from Hero Arts Christmas Clear Stamp set. The gingerbread family is cut from Recollections Kraft cardstock and the die came with the set. I cut the gingerbread family and the dress on the Mom using my Cuttlebug. I also used Stampin' Up Classic Stampin' Pad Old Olive water based die ink on the jumpsuit on the top left Boy gingerbread. I added the stickers- also Recollections Christmas Noel- to hold the bottom easel card open. I drew the faces and bends in the arms/legs on the gingerbread family with GellyRoll Metallic Silver pen. It closes up to fit inside an A2 envelope. I'll write my note on the green paper that can be seen when lifting the top easel card up. I wanted to use another stamp set on a double easel card, but this set that I used was more fitting for this hop. Please come back Sunday to hop along with me in a Growing In Unity hop. It will be me and a few other GIU girls from October and November.

Next head on over to Santa's workshop to visit with (SUE- I'm sure she has something awesome to share!

Here's our line up in case you get lost along the way.
