I struggled with this theme even though everything about Christmas is fun and a theme of Oh What Fun should have been a breeze. Sometimes, inspiration can take it’s time! In my mind, This gingerbread man came popping into my mind as I mulled over this theme for the #30DayChristmasCardmakingChallenge . So I went with it and opted for some fun pastel colours to create this card.

I had a negative laying on my desk from a die cut Deckled Rectangle and used it as a stencil to create an unorthodox background. I laid the mask here and there so it created a random pattern. Then I die cut it using the retired Stitched Rectangles dies which I’m sure many of you would have kept in your stash. This was layered on a panel of Specialty Cardstock which provided a lovely textured Fresh Freesia layer.

For the matte base layer, I watercoloured a panel of Fluid 100 Cardstock with Pool Party ink refills and a Water Painter creating a heavy wash. Once dry, this was embossed with the retired, Oh My Stars embossing folder.

The sentiment is from the Oh What Fun stamp set which is a retired sentiment set and this also provided me with the little baubles that adorned the stockings.

I just love this gingerbread man and the stocking layered together which provide such a fun focal point for this card.
