Papertrey Holiday Button Bits and Rustic Snowflakes Paper

This group of cards uses Papertrey Holiday Button Bits. Holiday Wishes and/or Rustic Snowflakes holiday paper; there is one SU! sentiment included :-) I have really had a lot of fun using Papertrey's Button Bits stamp collection; I really have fun applying buttons on cards, so these are perfect for what I enjoy doing :-)
Some special notes: The little gingerbread men were stamped with a glue pad and Martha Stewart's brown flocking powder was applied for that "real cookie" look. To seal them, simply spray a sealer of some sort; otherwise, the powder will disappear when it's touched. I tried to find instructions on how to keep the powder from sticking; there are several products you can buy and try on the market, including something from SU! The Santa Claus image was stamped with dye ink first and then UTEE embossing clear powder was added to give that glassy appearance; this step was done about three times, but you can add more powder. I also used the new Background Basics Text Style II on the bottom half of the card.
Thanks for stopping by today; I really appreciate it!
