ABC Christmas - Gingy

Today at ABC Christmas Challenge is a new fortnight challenge: Red, Green, and Silver with some Love

I have been asked (okay, I volunteered, but it sounds so much better to be asked) to be a guest designer for this week's challenge. StampFairy is sponsoring the challenge so there will be some really cute digis up for grabs.

I used this cutie from Gingerbabies Bakery, whom I have nick-named Gingy {found here}:

How many layers is this card you ask (though you probably don't). Fourteen layers!! And that's not including the inside. With all that heavy paper and stitching this card is a heavyweight!

I made a little pocket inside to put a gift card or cash in. (and that is 4 layers inside)
I didn't know where to end with the stitching so I just ending up stitching everywhere.Card Ingredients:
StampFairy digi; DCWV papers; Bazzill and Recollections cardstock; Copics; Gelly Roll white pen; Martha Stewart Crystal glitter; Inkssentials Glossy Accents; Fiskars Threading Water border punch.

I made Gingy for the following Christmas challenges:
I hope my card brought a smile to your face, as I love me some good ol' fashioned cuteness.

14 layers is impressive... even i rarely get past ten! :) on the other hand, you definitely need A LOT of layers to hold this much CUTENESS in one fabulous xmas card!!! (ps: i especially LOVE the pocket inside, that is brilliant!) ♥
